The holiday shares so many other memories of my past, they're hard to ignore, even during this time of marital reminiscing. Nine years ago, Rocky and I attended the Memorial Day Concert on the Mall, the first of several incognito dates. Seven years ago, I moved to Arlington. Four years ago, Rocky and I merged our things into the world's smallest apartment with the world's largest bathroom. One year ago, we found out Baby King was a B.B.
We observed the sacred four year anniversary with a night on the town. Yep, a date! At night! With a babysitter! We ventured to Old Town Alexandria and enjoyed the four course tasting menu with wine pairings at Vermilion. Four Courses! Four Wines!
We started off with a bang, a soft shell crab BLT, with avocado and the tomatoes weren't just any tomatoes, they were fried green tomatoes. So, really it was a SSCBLAFGT. I think Rocky liked it, but not only do iPhones have poor resolution in low light, they also have poor smile translation. That might be a "I can't believe we're that couple, AGAIN, face."
