Impress Your Spouse with a Fantastic Date!

Scene: If you know me, you know that I like to ask random hypothetical questions out of the blue. Angel is used to this habit, and always answers my random questions

Rachel: "Imagine if you were single, and you lived in America, and you wanted to take a girlfriend on a date and really impress her, where would you go?"

Angel "Chipotle."

[I found this answer rather strange, but then I remembered that Angel's odd ideas about girlfriends in the abstract, i.e. he believes they are a waste of money. So I changed my question to see what answer I would get next.]

Rachel: "Okay, Imagine you lived in America and we were married and you wanted to take me out on a date and really really impress me, where would you go?"

Angel: "Dairy Queen."

[Honestly, this explains so much...]

Angel turned the question back on me: "Well where would you take me in America if you wanted to make me feel special, huh?"

Rachel: "Old Country Buffet."

Angel: "Wow--I would be really impressed! Great choice!"


We're still college students at heart, I guess. Tune in next time for a few of my not-necessarily-romantic date ideas.

Where would you take your spouse on a date if you were on a mission to make them say, "Wow!"?

Love your post! Love that you're so considerate of your marriage: I speak from the wisdom of my experiences when I say that it takes a great deal of conscious, and constant, effort to make a marriage work....congratulations!

Hahaha Dairy Queen love it! That would actually make me really happy if my husband took me there because I love ice cream! :D

Ha! This sounds like me. You don't have to spend a ton of money at expensive restaurants to have a great time.

Ha ha! Dairy Queen. I haven't been there longer than you've been on this earth! LOL

It is hard to impress my husband when all he does is travel around the world and stay in five star hotels. He actually prefers my home cooking I think better than anything I could offer otherwise.

Dairy Queen! Haha...y'all crack me up! Cory would much rather have a big 'ole home cooked lasagna than any restaurant!

Romantics, the two of you. Old Country Buffet was quite a treat when I was a kid.
So in your tradition of questions, here's mine: Did you feel like you were downgraded in Angel's second answer? Mystery girl gets Chipotle and you only get Dairy Queen? Or was it a great choice because you actually love Dairy Queen?
