So this old married couple walks into a bar…

July 2, 2010 § 1 Comment

It’d been a while since we went out together, so Mr. Man & I headed out for a nightcap last night. I grabbed a table in the back while he got us a couple of whiskies. Feeling a little sappy, I sent him a short & sweet text that I was sure he’d pick up while waiting for our drinks. The details are between us, but I will confirm that it included a combination of the characters “<” and “3”.

He comes back with our drinks but doesn’t mention my note. I wait a few minutes before interrupting our conversation to ask if he’d gotten it. He pulls out his phone to check his messages.

Mr. Man: “I didn’t see it yet, I set my phone to not ring when you…aw, you’re so sweet!”

Elis: “Wait, did you just say you have your phone set to not ring when…”

MM: “…when you text me.”

(pause)

E: “So you set your phone to block my texts.”

MM: “Oh. Yeah, I guess so.”

(loaded pause)

MM: “I see them all eventually!”

And this, my friends, is how you keep the romance alive.
