Hannah and I had our third date tonight. We went to the Memphis Pizza Cafe and got a medium vegetable supreme (olives, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli) with pepperoni, then drove down to the riverfront. We looked at the Pyramid with the replica of a Rameses II statue out front and walked through Tom Lee park, named for a levee worker who saved the lives of 32 passengers when a steamboat capsized. There was a superb metal sculpture of him riding out in his dinghy “Zev” and reaching to a man holding to a broken piece of wood. Before heading home to watch an episode of “Firefly”, we stopped by Perkins for some pie. It was a great date, very relaxing, but different in character from our previous dates, which were also lovely but involved dressing up and going out for a nice dinner. Even though it’s only our third time to go out, I think I can affirm that we like each other and this’ll work out. Tonight’s events were pleasant in themselves, but almost more importantly they formed an unobtrusive backdrop to several hours of conversation alternating between light and philosophical, as any good date conversation should. We’re looking forward to the time when we can have dates on more than a bimonthly basis.
