Where did you go on your first date?
Gwynly and I went out to dinner at Scotts on the Embarcadero
in San Francisco and enjoyed a fancy fish dinner. Afterward
we crashed the Junior-Senior Prom at the high school
where he was teaching, held at a restaurant in Berkeley.
I figure we’re one of the few couples who received an 8×10 photograph
to commemorate the event. The photographer wanted us to get all cozy
as prom couples are apt to do, but I insisted we keep things semi-formal.
It was our first date, after all.
Earlier this month we were able to relive our first date.
We volunteered to count the royalty ballots at his high school’s prom.
Unlike our first prom when I was ill-at-ease, this experience was wonderful.
I had a great time talking with the young people and admiring their finery.
The best part of the evening, though, was spending time
with my guy as we relived a special memory.
I’d love to hear about your first date.
Where did you go? What did you do?
What made the date extra special for you?
Feel free to share a prom memory.
