Little did I know he did a drive-by of the place during the week and scouted a little pizza place where we could have dinner first. (Sweet move #1)
As we parked the car we sized up the clientele. We saw lots of teenagers going inside. My immediate thought was "uh-oh", but there was no way I was turning back now. We got to the counter to pay and the lady said, "Are you here for oldies night?" My reply was, "Uh, yeah, but we were calling it '80's night, thank you very much."
Holy cow can those teenagers skate. They were weaving in and out and flying by us at high speeds. But we eventually got in our groove. Bill even held my hand and it wasn't even a couples skate. (Sweet move #2).
I couldn't believe they played "Let the Music Play" by Shannon, which was on my wish list, and I didn't even request it. I think making requests wasn't possible because it seemed that it was already a pre-planned playlist going. Too bad. They could have used my help.
On Saturday I was up early to take Billy to Stage Crew, and then Bill and I split the 2 basketball games the boys had later that day. We made it home safely in the snow. I parked myself in front of a fire while Bill made me a delicious Valentine's dinner. (Sweet move #3)
As luck would have it, the roller rink near our house has special afternoon hours! All seven of us went this time and had a blast. (except the two times Bill fell, once on top of Mary!!). They played "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by chance and "You Dropped A Bomb On Me" by request made by...you guessed it... Bill. (Sweet Move #4)
I really know how to squeeze a special occasion for all it's worth, especially if it falls on a weekend.
Thanks to Bill for making it all happen and getting me "in my element" for the weekend. You are the best.
