It was the 3rd of January. But not just the 3rd of January. Tonight it was date time for me and Dad.
I got dressed and everything. I wore a pink skirt with a belt, white tights, a white collared button down shirt tucked in, leather boots, a ponytail and a rose clip in my hair.
I brought my lyrics book just in case I wanted to sing in the car. But I still suggested I wouldn’t need it, because I would be talking to Dad on the way to the Cinemagic movie theater.
When we got to Cinemagic, we bought our ticket and a medium popcorn. I liked the part at the end when Samantha hugged her father. I never understood why the movie is called “Little Fockers.”
Then Daddy and I drove (well, actually I didn’t drive–I rode) to Sea Dog Brewing Company. Sea Dog Brewing Company is a restaurant in South Portland, Maine. When we got in Dad asked me if I wanted to sit at the bar. Of course I replied with a “No.” We sat at one of the quiet tables. I ordered milk and enjoyed talking to Dad while waiting for the waitress to come back. When she did, I asked her for mac & cheese. Later, when I saw what I ordered, there was purple lettuce and I think cucumber on the side. Now I didn’t order sides, so I asked Dad why it was there. Turns out it was decoration. No wonder the lettuce was purple! I ordered seconds of mac & cheese and a peanut butter and banana milkshake. I couldn’t finish, so I gave the milkshake to Dad.
Daddy and I took a peppermint on the way out, and sang my favorite songs on the way home. Our date together was so fun, and I look forward to the next date with Dad.
