Tomorrow night is date night. Mapsgirl and I are going out for dinner, and then to the Leaf game.
I had a very generous secret Santa at work. I know what you’re thinking… that’s one-hell-of-a-Kris-Kringle! Well here’s how it goes… the person that had me received the tickets from our boss for saving the day. What he did is not important, but the fact they gave him Leaf tickets, and good ones at that, is the important part. Well… he isn’t much of a hockey fan, and tried to sell them on-line, with no bites. Surprising, being in the GTA and not being able to sell tickets in the largest hockey market in North America. So I organize and run the Secret Santa at our work… and we drew names this past Monday. Low and behold, my name was chosen by the person who just saved the day, and couldn’t sell the tickets. I was unaware of this… until he walked up to me at one of the busiest moments on Tuesday afternoon and said “got plans Saturday night?” To which I replied… “I don’t think so”. So he said “want your Secret Santa gift early… cause I drew your name”… so I said “sure”. Never in a million years did I expect what happened next. He pulled a pair of tickets out from his pocket and said “enjoy… they’re playing Washington, so it should be a great game!” The tickets were the normal mezzanine seats my work gets, and they are fantastic seats. There is a private bar, and a restaurant where you can get a fresh sliced roast beef sandwich, and all of it can be delivered to your seat, so you don’t miss a second of the action.
Mapsgirl and I are planning on making an evening out of it. We are leaving Munchkin and Peanut with their favourite sitter, and taking the GO train into town. First dinner, then the game. This will be our first “date night” since February 16th. We saw the Leafs that night too, and they won. Honestly, it doesn’t even matter to me if they win tomorrow, and I’m not really expecting them to, as they are playing Ovechkin and the Capitals. I’m just going to enjoy spending some quality time with mapsgirl. GO LEAFS!
