Nine Years a Valentine

He didn't believe in reservations. As we drove towards LA on Saturday I reminded him. I turned to Mario and asked him if he remembered our first Valentines Day together. The sounds of the 60 Freeway playing softly in the background.

We laughed about his elaborate and extra romantic plans to take me on a fancy dinner for two inside one of the Queen Mary's fanciest restaurants. We would eat and dance and sip our drinks out of a fancy glass. Then we would hold hands and walk around the ship overlooking the beautiful sunset on the ocean.

But he didn't believe in reservations. And very adamantly, the restaurant hostess did.

We had dinner for two at a nearby Green Burrito. The kind that shares a building so it's half Green Burrito and half KFC. We sipped our drinks out of carboard cups and sat in a booth next to a homeless man who slightly frightened me. Later we held hands. But only for a short time before we got lost and spent the rest of the night trying to find the freeway entrance to get back home.

And nine years later, I wouldn't want to be lost holding the hand of anybody else.

I love you my love! Happy Valentines Day!


Us at the Griffith Observatory in LA on Saturday
