On Friday night, I asked Maggie what she wanted to do. She required 2 things:
- French fries
- Dinosaur Play Land (her name for the play ground area at the mall)
So, I took her to 5 Guys. They make a good burger. Really good. I've never seen a kid eat fries like Maggie did. She really put them away. I had the best time with my girl, sitting across the table sharing fry sauce, talking about "nuffing" (nothing) in particular.
After the burgers, I loaded Maggie into the single, solitary, one-kid stroller (that I haven't used in nearly 2 years) and we cruised around the mall. It was absolutely heaven. I could turn the thing on a dime. She never once threw anything from the stroller as we walked around. There were no tantrums. Then I asked Maggie if there was anything else she wanted to do while we were out, and she said with wide eyes looking at the Shrek display at the movie theater across the parking lot, "I see Shrek show?"
How could I say no? I couldn't. So, we saw Shrek 4 and laughed and laughed until Maggie fell asleep. Then I had to laugh and laugh by myself. Good show. Good date. I'll have to ask Maggie out again.
