Bring Back the Words: Week 4

I’m participating in Ginger‘s Bring Back the Words (BBTW) link-up!

Prompt 1: What is your best dating story?

I can't really think of a best date because I was never a fan of dating.  Not in high school, not in college, not after college, and especially not post divorce.  I know I should probably say that Chris and I had a wonderful first date and while it was nice, it was nothing special (sorry, Honey!)  It was just dinner out and time to talk and it was good for us.  I didn't need anything fancy.  But what I will say is that Chris has been trying this year to find opportunities for us to "date."  About once a month we try to get a night out without the kids when we can get the chance (and preferably free babysitting) so we can spend a little quality time together.  It has been good for us as a couple because it is easy to get stressed out by work and home responsibilities and forget why we are together in the first place.  Apparently he has a date planned for us for Friday night to celebrate my birthday (tomorrow) since we never got to go out for our anniversary (I was in DC).  I am kind of excited because he has planned all the details of this date and made the arrangements which is something I normally have to do so it is a bit of a break for me.
Prompt 2: What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
So in my wild and crazy single days (ha...if you know me, you know that's a joke), I decided to get a tattoo.  I'm still not sure why I wanted to get one but I did and I have thought about getting more.  To the point of going to the tattoo parlor but leaving without one because I didn't know what I wanted.  I know in comparison that isn't as crazy what some people have done but for little ole conservative me, it was pretty out there.  Of course, I had a few crazy days in college but those might be another topic for another time.

I'm trying to work up the nerve to get a tattoo. That seems crazy to me!

It took a couple of glasses of wine and even then they had to stop half way through because I almost passed out. Even though I say I want another one, I don't know if I could really do it or not.
