Im a Seinfeld fan. Although, my husband has one up on me there. He may not remember the exact years his children were born but he can remember every episode and quirky situation that is presented in the classic sitcom. Well tonight we had our own situation that, to us, seemed like good material for an episode.
We were at Chickfila with the kids. Another couple came in with their two boys (who happened to be 13 months apart and just a little bit younger that Jorge and Alex..who are 15 mo. apart) and of course we started chatting. Our kids played with their kids. We laughed and cut up with the other couple. Found out lots about them (I do love to ask questions). All in all they were a very down to earth, fun couple that we seemed to have a lot in common with. We were in there about 30-45 minutes. Then Jorge (my son) looked like he had to go to the bathroom..and he actually didn't make it (yes, and it was a #2). Anyway, by that point it was time for us to leave. Afterall Jorge didn't have underwear on. So I asked Big Jorge to go ahead and load up Eva and Alex and I would meet him at the van. On my way out I knew that Jorge's shoes were still in the cubby so I went in to get them. But the couple told me that my husband had already gotten the shoes. Then I told them to have a great night and then the wife said, "it was really great talking with you guys."
Okay here is the Seinfeld moment: I really wanted us to hang out with them again. But do you ask another couple "out?" I mean, AWKWARD. I got in the car and told my husband that I really like them and thought it would've been neat to hang out with them.. but the obvious.. we just met them at a Chickfila. Do you ask random strangers to hang out again and if so, how do you do that? Of course that led to our funny conversation (btwn me and my husband).. do you say..
"So, you come here often?" or,
"I lost my number can I have yours?"
"Look, we like you. Wanna hang out after this?"
It was funny. I guess if its meant to be God will bring them to us again (lol!).
