This is a love story. Well, actually, it is two love stories.
The first of the love stories, is that I told my beloved over the weekend that I think that we should go on a date, just the two of us, very soon. She and I don’t do that for ourselves very often, and it is always enjoyable to get out as two adults and enjoy each other’s company. She readily agreed. This is where the second love story comes in…………
She wants to go on a date to the Home Depot.
Yep, that is what I said. She absolutely LOVES the Home Depot.
Now, for practical purposes, the Home Depot would be a good location to go out, just the two of us. Hannah absolutely hates going there for more than five minutes. A lot of walking and it gets boring for her after a while, just looking around a huge hardware store.
I enjoy looking around there also, admiring all of those items for projects that we hope to do here someday; all of the gadgets and extras that I would enjoy having in our house. The beautiful appliances and cabinetry.
But, for my beloved, it is love at first sight. It is hard for her to resist any aisle, whether it be tools, or plants, or lumber. She loves the sights, sounds, and smells. She gets in there, and it is hard to get her out of there. We can NEVER go in there for “just one thing, just what is on the list”. It ain’t happening. So, if we do go there for our date, our first one in probably a year, she will be in absolute heaven, and I will be wishing we were sitting over a cup of coffee somewhere.
Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing her happy and contented in what she is doing, but I would rather have a date where we are a bit more engaged than shopping. At the Home Depot. I am not her first love when we are there, the wood is, or the trees, or power tools.
Talk about some stiff competition. I think coffee would be better……….
