Girl Date

Tonight Em's mom and I decided to go out and celebrate my new job. We had the perfect night.

At one point, we were walking together, completely alone on a deserted stretch of beach, the soft sugar sand lit up pink and orange because of the sunset, rays of light cutting patterns through the wispy, fluffy clouds and dolphins frolicking (I shit you not, there were dolphins) on the horizon, and I turned to her and said, "This is the most romantic night I've had in a long time." And she agreed.

It was just beautiful. The conversation, the sunset, the private corner booth at The Melting Pot, our waiter, Steve, who understood our passion for bananas dipped in milk chocolate and brought us an endless supply without so much as a dirty look...(he did not have the answers to some of life's bigger questions though, we did ask)...perfection.

Now I am stuffed full, I mean really and truly GORGED, and a little bit tipsy and feeling pretty darn good all around.

Remember that article I told you all about where women release Oxytocin when spending quality time together? Remember my love of Oxytocin (breastfeeding, anyone?)? Yeah, that. I love that.

Next Monday, I start The Job. Contingent on a drug test and background check, of course. Don't worry, I'll pass both, and assure them that my life really is as boring as promised.

Other than the girl dates and the exploding dinners, things are pretty tame. Let's hope they don't test for Oxytocin or Pinot Grigio.

I went on a girl date this past Friday and I had no idea of the oxytocin emissions...THAT'S why it was so nice.

Plus we spent a solid two hours looking through high school pictures and I am so way prettier now than I was then (believe me when I say that's not saying a WHOLE lot) and I'm fairly certain certain that emits oxytocin as well.

Here's hoping you don't have a hangover tomorrow so that we don't have to listen to you bitch about how bad your head hurts or how fat you are after all those chocolate dipped bananas.

KIDDING!!! I love to "listen" to you bitch.

And ps thanks for the troll link, I've been having some trouble with them lately myself and it's nice to know these people make a living and find enjoyment out of making perfectly happy people unhappy.

I'm pretty sure those guys are going straight to Hell. And by "pretty sure" I mean God appeared to me in a series of dreams and told me it was so.

I've lived in Florida most of my life and I still get excited when I see dolphins! Something about them just makes you smile. Sounds like you had a blast. Good for you. You deserve it!

Oxytocin... does that come in a pill form?


Marie said...

Oh that sounds nice I need a girl night in the worst way. I get so tired of boys sometimes :(. Everyone in my house in boys except for my dog and I gotta tell you there aint no oxytocin emmitted when she is knocking me over with her big ass.

Denise said...

First of all, I have yet to congratulate you on getting the job! So...CONGRATS
Second, I so know. I have hooked back up with an old friend (in a very platonic way) and we went out together and had THE BEST TIME. It was awesome. I think we are in love!

Girl Dates... Ahhh... They are a MUST for me to keep my sanity. That and alcohol.

Joy said...

I totally love to see dolphins, we went out in the boat on the bay while at the beach and there were tons of them every where they just kept popping up. did I mention I love the beach?

SO jealous about the date whether girl date or date with hubs, I luv the Melting Pot but haven't had it in a while and I also share you love of the chocolate dipped bananas.

Also how are those eggs doing? I want to see some baby chicks

That sounds HEAVENLY!! I don't think I've had a girl date since last December, when I met up with Robin in Phoenix for lunch & shopping. And before that, I think it was Cheesecake Factory with you last summer! What a shame! I totally crave that Oxytocin release - I must find more ways to get it. (Other than nursing David...which I am STILL doing, btw....)

Have you heard of "Liquid Trust"?

I wonder if it works? :)

ps: yes, I went looking for a pill form of Oxytocin.

I just need to say that I'm truly disappointed and saddened that you'll pass your drug test.

(and I'm sooooo envious of your girl-date..... )

Congratulations on your new job. And by the way this post started, I really thought you were going in a different direction than where it wound up. But then, I would, being a D.O.M. and all.
