Last night I treated the "man- friend" to his favorite place in the world: A MUSICAL!
The Scarlet Pimpernel to be exact ;)
Alright, so it's not the first activity he'd choose to be doing on a Friday night, BUT I think he enjoyed the show. But I'm not so sure what he got a kick out of more- the actual play OR seeing me out of his peripheral, totally sucked into the romance, lip-syncing every line to every song. I knew I was busted when he leaned over and whispered into my ear,
"I get it now... I totally get why you..."
He needn't say another word. I knew exactly what he was thinking and we both busted up laughing (a quiet laugh of course).
"It's all coming full circle now" he said with a cheesy grin on his face.
Good. Now he can FINALLY see where and why I conjure up all my hopeless romantic stuff. What can I say!? I am a drama nerd at heart and I LUFF me a little sappy romance :)
