It’s been a busy last few weeks.
- I got mugged on my way to work.
- I finished one website for a client and started on another.
- Sade started school again after a far-too-short summer break.
- At my day job another friend/coworker was fired (I really really really need to look for a new job).
Yesterday was a big day. The anniversary of our first date.
So how did we celebrate?
I wish I could say I took Sade to a nice dinner out on the town or that we did something special.
Instead it was our typical busy weekend. Just like the busy weekdays but instead of going to work I spent more time doing my freelance work and cleaning the bathroom and doing the laundry.
We both felt bad for not doing something to mark the occasion.
I felt especially bad. Our first date was the first indication that she was interested in more than just casual play. She wanted to see if she liked me as a person in a vanilla context and not just for kinky sex.
I remember how nervous I was, I kept reminding myself not to get “all submissive” as one friend put it.
I took her to go geocaching (link) before we caught a movie (Inglorious Bastards). Halfway through I remember thinking “fuck, why did I pick one of the nerdiest activities one can do on a date.”. Surprisingly she loved it. Enough to warrant a second date and a third and now we’re getting married in June.
So for our anniversary date we didn’t do anything special.
Instead of a fancy dinner I bought her some Skittles and coconut water.
She smiled and kissed me.
So I guess it was pretty special after all.
