Love Shack

Now that The Audiophile and I are both retired, every day is Friday. This means we can have date night on, dare I say, a Tuesday, LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE, if we want to.

Recently, on a Tuesday, we decided to be crazy and lazy, which meant date night would be held at home. Perfect. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that there is no reason to ever leave a house if it has wine and cheese and a high-fidelity sound system. Check, check and CHECK.

And speaking of check, I noticed The Audiophile was repeatedly checking his phone. Ahem, if I’m not mistaken, this violates Rule Numero Uno in the Date Night Code of Conducto book. But wait, there’s more… after I gave The Audiophile the universal raised-eyebrow signal for “turn off your phone,” he said the reason for obsessively looking at it was another audiophile was coming over to pick up a box. On date night.

I don’t know if this box contained audio gear, unmarked hundos, or kittens, but The Audiophile wisely put the box on our front porch with a love note. Then he turned off his phone and all the inside lights to make it look like we were away on a real date. And now that I think about it, I’m wondering if this was all just a ruse to ensure date night required candles along with that wine and cheese and high fidelity.
