Earlier Ben and I decided that since it was Valentines Day I should not have to cook. Well, I decided it really but he totally agreed and we all went to The Burger Pit (actual name, people) for dinner. I got a 14 oz prime rib. I’m not sure exactly what part of me thought I’d be capable of “handling” a 14 oz. piece of red meat after not having eaten ANY red meat in over a month. And the worst part? The meat was so fatty that I had to dissect it into 200 little mini piles of flesh and MAYBE found 7 oz of edible meat. So not only did I eat meat, but I ate FATTY meat. And Ben just SAT there and LET me do it!
Saturday on the way to Benihana’s we were chatting:
Ben: Well, now I know where Burlingame is.
Me: What? You didn’t know where Burlingame is?
I was in shock. I was always under the impression that Ben not only knew of every city in American but could, at a moments notice, give you exact directions on how to get there in the least amount of time and by the most windy roads.
Me: Oh, wow. You have to drive by it to get to The City (San Francisco).
Me: They have a big diamond outlet here.
Me: Yeah, they sell them wholesale. *nods in agreement with myself*
Ben: Do they have a coat factory too?
Ben: A coat factory. Burlingame Coat Factory.
Me: BWAHAHAHAAH BURLINGTON coat factory, fool!! BURLINGTON, not Burlingame.
Me: I’m totally blogging that.
Me: I have to just remember. I always SAY that then I never remember to do it!!
Cassidy: *get me out of this car and away from these crazy adults*
I chanted to myself ‘must remember must remember must remember’ for a few miles.
Tonight as I sat on the Porcelain Throne trying to will my body to just rid itself of the toxic 7oz of meat without completely ripping my colon out of my body in the process, I suddenly remembered that I didn’t post that one conversation where Ben made me laugh out loud. And I laughed through the pain thinking about it.
Ben makes me laugh. Everyday. It’s one of the many, many, many things that make me love him as much as I do.
Happy Valentines Day, Lover. Can’t wait for Saturday night… : )
