This weekend Brad took me to The Melting Pot for dinner. Naturally, I was beside myself with excitement. While we were there, I asked him if it’d be okay if I substituted the beer (yuck) they pour into the cheese fondue (::ahhh::) for a vegetable broth, because that’s what I had done last time I ate there.

Not because it’s immature or anything to throw down in the middle of the street — just watch the Jersey Shore (kidding), but I just don’t have the stamina in my old age.

But you get the point. Plus she’s a dancer. Ever see the leg muscles on a freaking dancer? One Hulk Hogan wrestling move where she gets one of those things wrapped around me and I’m gone. She’ll snap me like a pretzel. Should have kept me in dancing school when I sobbed and begged to quit when I was 4, Ma! Come on!
