back to basics

it felt like joe and i were on our first date last weekend. we sat on one side of a booth at mellow mushroom, munching on pretzels and firing questions at each other.

“when did you realize you wanted to be a writer?”

“if you could live anywhere, where would it be?”

it was nice to be able to get to know each other more and just spend a fun, relaxing afternoon together. after lunch we walked around downtown douglasville (to work off all that mellow mushroom food!) before heading back to his parents’ house to nap. 🙂 we had traveled to douglasville to pick up their dogs from the kennel since they were on their way back from their alaskan cruise. it turned out we spent the night there because his parents got stuck. their flight from seattle was postponed because the co-pilot’s seat broke. it took them several hours to finally get on a flight stopping in memphis, where they had to spend the night before returning to atlanta. it was reminiscent of our trip to new york, which we’ve affectionately named the trip from hell. 🙂

then it was off to the shakespeare tavern in downtown atlanta. neither of us had been there before, and we plan to go again. the theater was built to resemble the globe theater, and the performance of “the fantasticks” was, well, fantastic. heh. the singing was incredible and the actors were hilarious. we sat in the back, and still had fabulous seats. next time, we plan on seeing a shakespeare play.

as we left, i noticed that right next door was an adult store. i laughed at the irony. you can get your culture and then get your unculture. hehe.
