What's up his sleeve?

I told ITSam he doesn't have to make a big deal out of Valentine's Day because he had been asking me for the last 3 weeks where I wanted to have dinner on Valentine's Day so he could make reservations, Finally, I told him we should just go out to dinner at one of our favorite places on the Friday or Saturday before and maybe see a movie. I told him a card would be nice and maybe a heart shaped box of candy but not necessary. I told him on the actual day, a Monday, we could just hang out and rent a DVD or Netflix.

He wanted to know and at our age, I appreciate him asking. I guess in his previous relationships, the expectations on V-Day were high. I told him he does so many nice things for me all the time he didn't have to cater to the trappings of Valentine's Day- other than a card.

However, he decided that since I love steak, we should go to a Japanese steak house in Northern Civilization. I guess the chefs "perform" while cooking your dinner, with the throwing and chopping and stuff like that. I've never been there before but it's one of Sam's favorite places so that's the plan. (He said he thinks I'll love it, and I can cross off something else on my 40 before 40 list- haha!)

He told me this last night and then said I should bring my camera. I said okay. Then he said I should dress warmly. Then he changed the subject.

Is it cold in a Japanese steak house or did he ignore my plea for just a causal dinner and up the ante that's going to involve something? The camera thing made sense because I thought if the chef performs then I could take pictures. I didn't get the dress warm part and he's not talking, so I'm not asking.

But I sure am curious.

Could be interesting, sweet, fun and grand. Or potentially hazardous.....

That sounds like a classic marriage proposal to me....outdoors? Have fun and good luck!

Lilith- do they have those in NCiv in the winter?

Bragger-- uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh okay.

One time he and I talked about how cliched it was to get engaged or married on Valentine's Day, mostly because SD proposed to me on Valentine's Day. But since this is 2 days before I suppose that's a possibility. Oh god.

Sounds like fun. Just enjoy. Don't stress on what might be.

Maggie said...

Curly- I promise I'm not stressing. I just like a good mystery. And I'm not fond of surprises. :) But I'm not stressing. With all the other things happening in life right now this is near the bottom of the stress list!
