We saw He's Just Not That Into You. Although it would have been the perfect flick to see with my friend Kelli, who lives in Minneapolis, it turned out more than OK for Mike and he actually enjoyed it.
I read the book back when I single and a bit stuck, so I especially looked forward to it. On my meandering path to become Mike's girl, the book remains a corner piece to our puzzle.
After we headed south to Portland, where we checked into our hotel room and got dolled up for our dinner.
Long story short, get reservations on Valentine's Day in Portland or you'll end up at Denny's enjoying a sampler plate. And another word to the wise, just wear the comfy clothes you normally wear, or you'll end up changing out of your fancy duds after you've been rejected by every restaurant you've tried...Even Zachary's, where you're staying the night!
As we sat at our booth, talking, people watching and noticing that interesting people frequent Denny's on VD, I couldn't help but reflect on MikeandKatieland.
He's Just Not That Into You had been one of the few things we had planned ahead on for our evening away. Living in rural Maine, movies have been a constant for us. We don't go all the time or anything, but sometimes it's the only option, so even when we were friends we'd make our way to Bethel to see a flick. Five years ago, we were at the movies and Mike rattled on about moving away. MOVE AWAY?! I asked him to stop at Rite Aid, so I could buy some Excedrin. Talk about a well-timed headache. Sometimes they send you a message and you've got to put it on the table. Unless you're at Denny's, where they don't serve relish.
