A Case for Heaven - Date Night!
Rare moments are they when Roger and I take time to indulge.
Happy to be together and away from work… we watched the trailers and munched on a fresh popped bucket of movie corn. My side gets salt. His side does not.
When the trailers began to repeat themselves for the third time and our popcorn was half gone a crew member appeared. The woman kindly told us the movie was broken and would not be playing.
“So sorry.” She said. “You can pick up free passes or get a refund on your way out.”
We will try another day.
Meanwhile I realize…
We have been training… in terms of disappointment… for some time now. So much so that the word and it’s meaning have kind of left my vocabulary.
Not what we thought our night would be?
No matter… we hold hands and keep walking. We roll on… knowing, trusting that what we have had is enough… and something better for us is on its way.
Our time away from the restaurant was simply perfect… and my half of the popcorn was too.
While we didn’t get to see A Case for Heaven that night… one was found in the Flan at La Vida Catrina Kitchen of Mexico.
I’m telling you… Oscar and Isabel know what they are doing… and they are doing it for all the right reasons. You can taste the passion and the love.
If you haven’t been there… go and enjoy! If you’ve been there you know what I’m taking about!
