I'm Pathetic

I'm cooking dinner for Jason.

It will be ready when he gets home.

I've got sparkling cider in the refrigerator and wine glasses to drink it with.

I have candles on the table.

Dessert is in the oven.

I might, just maybe, go so far as to shave my legs.

The table is set.

There is just one problem.

I'm nearly 35 years old and I still have to call my mom and ask on which side of the plate the spoon and knife go.

I seriously doubt that there is any hope for me.

That's all.

I think you're cute. And Jason is a lucky man.

When i began reading this, i read it as "i'm cooking Jason for dinner". You know what an agitated violent story, filled with immense murderous rage i expected? Sigh.

Where did the 35 come from? No birthday yet. So, you're 34. Go slow.

Haha! I'll let you in on a secret. I wasn't sure of the spoon and knife myself too, so i googled. Don't you love google? It's like an all knowing oasis, except not half as nice as the Mother!

p.s. where's my food? i'm hungry.

p.p.s. don't forget my dessert.

hahaha. don't worry, my kids still don't know either, cuz I never made dinner a real howdy doody fork, knife, spoon and dessert fork affair. He will just be grateful you made dinner. Now, be really brave and sit naked at the table with a big bow on. Or his favorite tie, like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Triple Dog Dare you. :)

Sounds like the perfect evening, shaved legs and all. Just don't get too drunk on sparkling cider.

Oh who cares about fork etiquette ....your hubby is coming home! :o)

I'm sure he would never notice.

ok then I don't feel so bad when my 24 year old daughter still has to ask me...

Am thinking Jason is not going to car which side the knife is on.

There are years where I don't feel like the grown up that is inhabiting this body. And that's a good thing.

And boys don't care about silverware placement. Just so you know.

Have a good weekend, my Darling Friend.
