Pat and I probably don't spend as much time together as we should. I submit this conversation as evidence:
Me: Pat, I would like to cancel dinner with our friends tonight because I was given tickets to the Coyotes game.
Pat: Am I invited to the game?
Aw, Poor Pat. And in case there is doubt from you...yes, I took Pat to the game. Then I also set aside a "date day" and told Pat the day was completely his to do whatever he wanted. Happily he chose to spend the day with me. I figured he'd want to go out in the Jeep, but instead he wanted to get us some culture by visiting the Phoenix Art Museum.Now we are cultured. I'm actually super-cultured because I also went to the Tucson Art Museum in the same week.
Tangent Story: After the museum we went to Tempe Marketplace to meet Pat's parents for lunch. We got there a little early so we walked around a bit. While walking towards the shops there was a teenage girl walking toward us who looked strikingly like our friend, Elaine. Lo and behold (Tangent in a tangent: I wonder why we say "lo and behold" instead of "look and see"?), it actually was our friend Elaine out looking like an 18-year-old hottie in her workout clothes. Perhaps the fountain of youth can be found in hiring a personal trainer to come to your house. Will someone else try that and let me know before I go investing all that money?
