Post 3671 - Friday Night

Well, hello there, handsome.

We had a pretty good day off. We had some business over in Dartmouth this morning, so we went there. The only sucky part was when I went to The Smiling Goat in one of those new Dartmouth condo's that have sprung up in recent years. Patricia wanted tea and a muffin. I got them, and was about to buy one for myself when the cashier informed me that those muffins were four dollars each. I put one back real quick.

No way was it worth that kind of money. We shared it in the car before we went in for our business.

After it was over, we drove around a bit and ended up at the Mic Mac Bar and Grill. I had been hearing about the places for many years, so we decided to give it a whirl. When we saw that they had a lobster and steak dinner meal for "only" $34, surf and turf, we both went for it.

It was delicious. The steak was divine. The lobster was... well, lobster-like. Well-prepared. Served with butter and mashed potatoes and mushrooms. If I had to offer any criticism, it is that it should have come with a few vegetables. Green beans. Green beans would have been good.

I reached into my coat pocket to pay. I realized that my wallet wasn't where it should have been. I panicked and ran out to the car. There it was! I had grabbed some cash from the banking machine on the way and had forgotten to put my wallet back in my coat pocket. Sheepish, I returned to the restaurant to the sight of Patricia rifling through my coat, in search of the very thing I had just found.

I paid for the meal, giving the server a really large tip for the inconvenience and to assuage my embarrassment. We left and made our way to the Bibles for Missions thrift store in Lower Sackville. Didn't really get anything.

We returned to the Halifax side of the world, and went to Costco. Went home. Patricia took a nap, and I put the victuals away before watching some stuff on the PVR. We were both still full from our meal.

Tonight we just watched some tv.

A boring day? Maybe. But we got a lot done. And... there are two more days in this weekend to enjoy. I will tell you about those days as they get here.

I think I will turn in. Need some sleep.

See you tomorrow.
