A Date Night Saga

Like any girl who grew up watching the Disney channel and reading books like Pride and Prejudice, I too regard date nights as holy and important. So I started by cooking an easy but elegant meal, and planned to watch the movie Switch(randomly selected), while savoring the meal. He lit up the fireplace and poured a glass of wine, while I finished cooking dinner. The dinner was amazing and the date was going fabulous until all the fire alarms in the apartment starting blaring. Instantaneously we were hit by the realization that we forgot to open the fireplace vent and smoke had spread in the entire apartment. Chaos had struck and the date night was invaded by the maintenance guys. Now it’s a cool story and we laugh about it; washing the soot off the walls is a story for another day.
