So I had dinner with K tonight at the neighborhood diner -- incidentally, the same one where the guy proposed to his girlfriend. I may have done it a disservice by comparing it to IHOP. Tonight's dinner was divine. I must've had a strawberry craving because I had a strawberry-frozen yogurt drink, an appetizer-size pizza on pita bread, and 2 scoops of strawberry ice cream, yummily presented with hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. I involuntarily said, "Holy shit," when they brought it and K remarked, "They like you here!"
In the elevator, back at my building, I saw a woman with her 2 little girls, both very cute. The older one told me she was six, and the younger one (in a stroller) held up 3 fingers to signify her own age. The six-year-old girl's eyes got all big and round and I could tell she was trying to think of something exciting to say. Finally she burst out, "I have a LIBRARY CARD already!" I thought that was pretty cool :)
