Terry and I just got home from The Capital Grille. We originally had reservations at a different place, but the Yelp reviews caused me to think we were pointed in the wrong direction. It was serendipity. I called The Capital Grill and asked if they had anything open for the evening. They did. “Are you celebrating a special occasion tonight, Mr. Adamthwaite?” Yes. Our 10 Year Anniversary. When we got there, our table had a very nice hand-written card on it and the table was scattered with heart-shaped confetti and red rose petals. It. Was. Perfect. The meal was delicious: steaks, lobster, lobster mac’n'cheese, wedge salads, IPAs, and a decadent flourless espresso chocolate cake. Kelly, our waitress, was the cherry on top. She made the expeience that much better. On top of that, the dim lighting would have totally prevented me from taking a photo with my iPhone, but luckily, they have a house camera and photo printer and took and printed a photo for us. A night I’ll always remember.
It’s been a decade. Here’s to you, my other half. With you, I am complete.
|Last time I saw you We had just split in two. You were looking at me. I was looking at you. You had a way so familiar, But I could not recognize, Cause you had blood on your face; I had blood in my eyes. But I could swear by your expression That the pain down in your soul Was the same as the one down in mine. That’s the pain, Cuts a straight line Down through the heart; We called it love.||So we wrapped our arms around each other, Trying to shove ourselves back together. We were making love, Making love. It was a cold dark evening, Such a long time ago, When by the mighty hand of Jove, It was the sad story How we became Lonely two-legged creatures, It’s the story of The origin of love. That’s the origin of love.|
Thanks for 10 years of support. 10 years of laughter. 10 years of friendship. 10 years of fun.
