Tonight we had planned to go out to dinner, since it’s been a long day and neither one of us felt like having last night’s dinner twice in a row or waiting to eat until we could get to the store and buy something for dinner. (Sunday is our usual store date but that got messed up because of my wife being out of town.) So we decided on going to one of the pho restaurants near our apartment and, on a whim, invited a friend we hadn’t seen in some time out to join us.
We had a good time catching up with him, talking about everything under the sun. Dinner was lovely and very filling, and we agreed that we should be doing this more often as we left one another’s company.
I don’t know why we don’t invite people to come along with us more often on those rare occasions that we eat out. We enjoy our friends’ company and both of us could certainly use the socialization.
Pho in belly, we went to pick up a prescription for me and headed back home to unwind for a few hours before bed.
It’s been a good day.
