I’ve been trying to get Jeremy (as the primary grocery shopper) to go to the new grocery store in Germantown called Wegman’s that opened three months ago and he’s been reluctant to go – granted, there are at least 12 grocery stores that are closer, but really, it’s no further than 15 minutes from the house. It’s a mash-up between Whole Foods and a regular grocery store – so you can get organic chicken AND honey-nut Cheerios/Oreos at the same place.
So on Thursday, I dragged him to the grocery store for date night. We were going to eat just at the hot buffet bar at the grocery store (I know, I know, this was a really exciting date that I’d planned) – but Jeremy had a long, tiring day at work and just really wanted a beer. So we went to the burger joint next door. Jeremy had to do a presentation that day which required him to get all dressed up and since he’s lost so much weight this year, he’s just swimming in a suit that is four sizes too big. We are about the bite the bullet and spend about $1500 for two nice suits from Brooks Brothers when they go on sale in January which is insane – but since the suit that he was wearing on date night was bought in the early 90s and still looks great (except for it being too big), I’m hoping the new suits will also last 25 years.
If money was no object and he could buy a new suit every year, I’d totally encourage him to buy a skinny suit with a vest a la Justin Timberlake. Now if only putting on a skinny suit would enable someone to dance like JT – that would be fabulous.
Oh! And truffles – only $1K a pound.
One thought on “Mid-week date night.”
I've been so busy and haven't been able to read your post lately. First love the Jeremy Ben Bob pix. Way to rock the tube socks Jeremy! Now those pancakes with Donald look good too. Did he install the thermostat? Like the date night but do you have a Jos A. Banks there if so check out their suits. They can have some very serious sales. Josh wears one of Jeremy's old suits whenever the need arises i.e. being President Taft for halloween so think of all the use everyone gets from those suits. And, finally happy Birthday to Kiki and happy Pearl Harbor Day but really HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Kiki.
