Friday was the Hubby's birthday. Usually we go out and celebrate the big event but in light of current events the Hubby wasn't really in a celebrating kind of mood. I still thought it was important that we do SOMETHING to mark the event--even if it was just dinner and a movie. Which admittedly, IS kinda a big deal in the Mommy Household because we don't get out much.

I JOKINGLY agreed, but it soon became apparent that the Hubby wasn't joking. After mentioning it to my girlfriends I learned that I was the only one that hadn't done this before and it wasn't to be attempted by the faint of heart. Over a glass of wine I was taught the finer points of how to score a double.
I brought all of this information back to the Hubby, thinking that he and I would share a big laugh over it, but it seems I was wrong. He took this information and started plotting. He decided which theater we should go to and which movies and times would increase our chances of success.
But still I thought this was all in jest. We aren't the type of people that do things like this. We're the type that tells the cashier she made a mistake when she gives us back too much change. We're the type that goes five over the speed limit and then when they're pulled over for a broken tail light, admits to speeding. We're rule FOLLOWERS, not breakers. We're boring but definitely the type you want to water your plants while you're on vacation because
