20 First Dates

19 years ago last night I had a date. A first date, actually. I remember the restaurant (Ho Ho) and what I ordered (Marpo Tofu). Mostly though, I remember the girl. Stunning. Brilliant. Gorgeous. And boy, did I want a second date.

Last night I had a date. The restaurant was a different Chinese one. And I got a different tofu dish. But it was the same girl and she was just as brilliant, stunning and gorgeous. And I still hope I'll get another date with her.

For our first date Shira and I drove to some ridiculously out of the way restaurant to insure we wouldn't run into any of our (read: her) friends. We kept that tradition alive by heading to our favorite Chinese place in Atlantic City.

Oh, they have gambing there too? I had no idea.

Merry Christmas to all, and happy 19th first date anniversary babe!
