After a long, long wait, here it finally is the tale of a birthday date that may or may not have involved some highly trained Navy SEALS.
She looked so nice in her black dress and her pink heels that complimented each other nicely. Her hair was straight down just the way I like it and a big grin on her face. “Happy birthday, my love,” I said as I presented her with her gifts (some very nerdy stuff, as it were but things I knew she would enjoy) and she kissed me and then we were on our way.
We left for Bricktown with reservations to In The Raw Sushi which turned out to be a very lovely and booming place, it had a nice design and atmosphere to it and as you would know it parking was hell. Hahaha. Seriously, we had no idea where to park, and it was funny seeing other drivers getting lost as well.
Finally we got in and we talked about the life we aspired for where we could get out like this more and just revel in a sleepless city that is fully of bristling life if only for the fact that it was an experience in life we had not yet had and it seemed attractive to us. And yes, it still does, just you know… money and all that stuff.
The food was wonderful and then we walked about and around the town across the river just taking in the atmosphere. We saw they were giving carriage rides outside the baseball stadium and Mii~chan was dying to go on one. We had only ever been on one before just before one of her winter balls at school and it was okay, not very long. This though was fancy looking and would take us further and give us more time to relax and take in the sites.
The bustling city from the moving pace of a trotting horse was surreal and wonderful to take in, Mii~chan loved it and that made me happiest of all.
After the carriage ride we decided to head on over to a candy shop we had passed on the ride and it seemed like fun, Bricktown Candy Co. is the name and I would recommend to anyone. It was small and friendly, very colorful and covered in all sort of delicious candies and sugar. Oh, blissful happiness. We sat at one of the little children’s tables as we ate our gelato and laughed and made jokes.
The freedom to be free.
Happy birthday, my sweet.
And here’s to the next years to come!
