My first date with my best friend (still!) occurred six years ago – he is a very shy man, and called to ask me out a week in advance. I promised him my Saturday, and I could hear the pleasure in his voice. He informed me he’d pick me up at 6 that evening. Saturday came, and he called to tell me to dress warmly – we live in Anchorage, Alaska.
Much to my surprise, he picked me up at 6 pm driving a carriage with two horses! He’d borrowed the carriage from a close friend and he trotted us to a park about 2 miles away. From the back of the carriage he pulled a picnic basket out, tied the horses up, laid out a blanket on the grass. We had a wonderful picnic dinner (delicious egg-salad sandwiches that he made and grape juice), and when we were done eating and resting and talking, he pulled out his younger brother’s kite, and together we spent the remainder of our evening running up and down the hills at the park, flying his kite! It was my most memorable and least expensive date ever – for both of us!
