Last Christmas tree of the season.
M and the Hammer still have a tree lit outside their cozy home. I love it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to the holidays yet.
It was so welcoming tonight, in the foggy night, as we drove up to their home. We were picking them up for an impromptu double date to dinner and the movies.
And oh what fun we had.
M and I were giggling like schoolgirls in the back seat, while the Man and the Hammer mocked us in the front seat. Which, of course, made us laugh even harder.
We talked about this, that, and the other over dinner. Nothing too heavy, just enjoying an evening out with friends.
So we're sitting at dinner, in this local Chinese food restaurant and after a while, a couple slides into the booth behind us. I noticed M and the Hammer looking over my shoulders and the Man's shoulders, eyes widening and then confused looks on their faces.
The woman behind us was unscrewing the light bulb in the lamp hanging over their table. Which made our table get a bit darker.
Hmmm. That's a bit odd. I've never seen anyone unscrew a light bulb in a restaurant before.
The couple got up and went to place their order in the next room. M and I started egging on the Hammer and got him to go over to their table and screw the light bulb back in.
Which he did. With us giggling the whole time. Well, not the Man. He doesn't giggle.
After the Hammer fixed the light, he promptly went to the Men's room.
The Man, M, and I got up and started getting our coats on. As the Hammer rejoined us, the couple came back to their table. We hightailed it out of there.
I looked back through the window and the light bulb was unscrewed again.
On a side note, we went to see "Jack Reacher" tonight. And, yes, this was my third night in a row at the movies. I feel like a movie critic.
My critique: Very good movie. Funny. Over the top adventure.
I highly recommend this film.
All of us can't wait for the next one.
