Daddy-Daughter Date Night

My daughter, Melody, and I went on a date tonight.  The local Chick-Fil-A had a Father's Day edition of their Daddy-Daughter Date Night, and the restaurant went all out.  Melody and I had gone on a few other Daddy-Daughter Date Nights at Chick-Fil-A in the past, and we even got all dressed up for them.  Because of the hot and humid weather, we decided not to get all dressed up, and instead we went wearing shorts and t-shirts.  It may not have been entirely appropriate for the occasion, but it's Chick-Fil-A, so I didn't worry about it.

Our reservation was at 6, and they had a table ready for us.  The hostesses were all dressed in white shirts, black pants, and red bow ties.  There was a young man with a saxophone on one side of the dining room playing some soulful, romantic jazz.  The waitstaff was also dressed nicely, and they took our order from an embossed menu.  We prayed before we started our meal, then we dug in.  We each had place mats with conversation questions to ask each other, and we took turns asking each other questions.  Unfortunately, they were all geared towards me sharing stories with her, so I had to do all the talking.  That was okay, but I wasn't eating very quickly because I was speaking the whole time.

It was such a fun time, though, and we enjoyed our meal.  Chick-Fil-A gave my date a rose as we left.  We took a little drive through Maple Lawn and over to Harris-Teeter to get a few groceries, then we headed home.  We arrived home just in time to see the final of the USA-Ghana World Cup match, which the USA won, 2-1.

Have a great evening, everyone!
