I couldn’t believe it when my son came to me asking where he should go on a date with his girlfriend.
I personally never thought to ask my parents where I should go on a date.
Commonly kids would want to go to the movies or something like that. I used to love going on dates to the drive-in, but I realize that drive-in movie theatres no longer exist for the most part. It was always nice because you could have your car running with the perfect temperature control settings in your car. Or you could have a blanket if it was a bit chilly and that was the perfect date in my eyes. I thought about it and then I told my son that maybe he could go to the aquarium. I thought he was going to roll his eyes thinking it was a dumb idea, but he thought it was a marvelous idea! I actually felt like I was helpful and he and his girlfriend really did go to the aquarium. They took pictures together in front of the penguins and they even took pictures with the sea lions. It was really cool and they had such a great time. The only complaint he had was the fact that the place was kind of humid. He said he wished they used a dehumidifier or something, but it made sense that it was humid due to all the water exhibits in an aquarium. He said it also would have been nice if they had a powerful air purification system to improve the smell, because there was that fish smell, but other than that they had a wonderful time.
