In case you haven’t figured it out yet, Mr. Bernie and I are odd ducks. We like to find unusual ways to have fun. Valentine’s Day is no exception. One year we decided that we didn’t want to go out and have a romantic dinner with the masses. We decided to go to McDonalds.However, we couldn’t just go eat a regular dinner. We had to have real table settings and so on. We went to our local thrift store to stock up on plates, silverware, glasses, flicker candles, and so on. Everything one would need for a fancy dinner out.
The lights are always bright at McDonalds. Mr. Bernie ran up a hill to take this picture before dinner.
See how pretty the table is? Note our dollar store flower-pot. While the Mr. was setting this up, some high school girls saw him. They squealed and awwwwed at him. He might be sterile now from that high pitch screaming. Note the candy hearts to the right. We had those to give out to people who might be brave enough to talk to us. We didn’t have to give many of them away. We got a few odd looks. We didn’t care. It was fun for us. That is all that mattered. Romance.We had an appetizer of salad and chicken mcnuggets. Our main course was a big mac and fries, eaten with our fork and knives.
It’s almost Valentine’s Day again. We are looking for more suggestions as to where to go for dinner. We still have the table settings and tablecloth. I know that you folks are pretty clever. Care to give us some suggestions? If we choose an idea and do it, we will send the winner a little Valentine’s Day surprise. So put on your thinking caps and lets hear your suggestions.
