The other day I told Randir I wanted to go somewhere nice
for dinner. Somewhere with good food that wasn't loud, where we could sit
back and just enjoy a good quiet meal. So, we decided that last night would
be the night. We were going to go to one of the nicer hotels but ended
up going to the Elephant Walk on the spur of the moment. It is a French
/ Cambodian restaurant, the combination of which just sounded
great. We had a really nice meal with much smiling and talking. drunkenmonkey
ordered lamb, Randir had chicken, and I had Me Siem. They thought
theirs was great but mine was too spicy for me. It was a nice full mouth
spicing but it interfered with my really enjoying the food. Fortunately,
the desert was heavenly.
Afterwards we got in the car and dm asked if we felt like going for a
drive. Randir and I were both cool with it.. so off we went. Something about
the meal, maybe the desert, made me sleepy so I laid down in the back and
drifted off to the sound of their voices. Not hearing words, just, sleeping
to the quiet conversation of friends.
When I woke up randir said "We're in New Hampshire"
Apparently dm had never been so we went. They asked me where the major
shopping area was in Nashua... so we went to the Pheasant Lane Mall and
drove around the empty parking lot. It was 12:35 and 21 degreed Fahrenheit
when we stopped at Pizzeria Uno and used their bathrooms.
On our way back we discussed how there is an interesting thing between
us where 2 of us always have something in common. I think there is a good
node in that. Like 2 are gay, 2 havent' had long term relationships, 2 are
extroverts, 2 used to be introverts, but, with us, it is fairly well balanced
with which 2 rotating between me and dm, dm and randir, randir and me.
And we kept having new sets of 2 interspersed through the conversations
But, the ride home was too short, and I wished I had of been awake for
the ride there.
