I planned a different post for today but when considering the interest in today's post, I decided to continue the casual dinner story. Is this continuation full of older women trying to pick me up? No! Is it full of mischief? Yes! So, the story begins with another casual dinner with my wife. It was a long day considering that I drove two hours to one of my offices, and back home in the same day. My wife planned to meet me again, and this time she was not late :) I was wearing the outfit above: herringbone sport coat with leather elbow patches, bow tie, wool pocket square with pheasant hunting motif, moleskin trousers, argyle socks, brown saddle shoes.
Realizing that she was never going to let me live down yesterday's incident, I set forth on a mission to even the score. After arriving at the restaurant, I excused myself and went to the restroom. While inside, I called the restaurant and asked for the manager (I know him). I requested a drink to be sent to my wife with a note! The note said, "I couldn't help but notice how beautiful you are, please accept this drink as a token of my appreciation -- secret admirer." So, I went back to the table and took my seat. Suddenly, a drink appeared with the note intact. The waiter gave the drink and note to my wife. She read the letter, and immediately her face turned red. I exclaimed, "what does it say." She said, "nothing." "Come on", I said. Finally, she gave me the note, and I pretended to be mad. I walked up to the waiter and pretended to want to know who sent the drink. The waiter knew what was up, and played along. I came back to the table and I told my wife the gentleman left already. She was feeling good, but she knew we were even. She totally bought it but if she reads my blog (she usually does not), I just ratted myself out. Oh well! I hated to be deceptive, but it relieved me of my burden and it made her feel good. I will tell her someday, just not today! Some guy would have sent her a drink at some point anyway. I just decided to speed things up :)
The footwear and the pooch! He can't resist the camera!
