Dinner and a Race

Last night T came to visit me.  He showed up and we went out for dinner together.

I had a craving for a steakhouse in next town so we got into the car and drove.  One of the things I like about my new car is the automatic transmission.  My old car was a stick shift, and now that I don't have to shift I can hold his hand as we drive without having to let go to shift.  

The trip the steakhouse was about 15 min and as we drove we chatted about your respective days.  Then for while we were quiet.  I drove.  He looked out the window.  We held hands.  Sometimes driving with someone else, in the quiet is uncomfortable, but not for us.  It was nice just to be with him.

We had a nice dinner together and headed back to my house.   T went up to my room for a shower while I put together some desert (get you mind out of the gutter, it was ice cream.)

When I got upstairs I found him in the bathroom, drying off...  

We climbed into bed, got close and... well... then we turned on the TV.

T and I started watching the Amazing Race.  It is the only reality show that I watch.  I like it for a lot of reasons, and I have watched it from the very first season.  K and I used to watch it together, but now that we don't live together we don't anymore.  The thing about the Race is that it's not a lot of fun to watch alone.  It's much better shared.  The new season started 4 weeks ago and I have it all on DVR.  We watched all 4 episodes last night.  It was really nice.  

When it was done, we turned off the TV and we curled up to sleep.

Just like in my dreams.
