The way dates should be...

Today was my day off from work, so I got up pretty early and drove to HBoO's house for some festivities. The weather was more than pleasant, so we hopped on some bikes and road to the nearest public park which happened to be adjacent to New Jersey's most serial killer filled forest...
Being avid fans of the horror genre, she and I knew the only logical thing to do was explore this forest without letting anybody know of our whereabouts. Soon, we were hopelessly lost in an intricately woven web of trees and underbrush. HBoO wasn't very pleased...
Facing certain death by starvation, machete, or both, I decided to climb up to the forest's canopy to see if I could spot any landmarks...
It was then that I realized that we were in a New Jersey forest. This meant that walking in any direction for more than five minutes would lead to a housing development and/or strip mall. Five minutes later, we found ourselves in a shoe store, much to HBoO's delight. While she danced with glee and tried on dozens of glittery high heels, I discovered that the couches scattered throughout the store were actually gigantic E. Coli...
It was here that HBoO had to make a very difficult decision. Would she flee from a massive unstoppable bacterium that devoured all in its path, or stick around to try on more shoes..?

After a few hours of fending off giant amoeba with my bare fists, we decided to grab some food at Wawa, my first opportunity to do so since coming home from England. Back safe at HBoO's house, we ate our delicious food and snuggled up on the couch watching Raiders of the Lost Ark...

Life doesn't get much better than that..:-)
