#100WW — Birthday Dinner

“How did you know how much I love king crab legs?” Craig asked.

“I asked your mother. She told me,” Darlene said. “That’s why I made reservations for this place. After all, it’s your birthday and I wanted to take you someplace I knew you’d enjoy.”

“You asked my mother?” Craid asked, sounding a bit surprised.

“Yes, I asked her if she could give me some suggestions,” Darlene said, a bit defensively. “I wanted to make tonight special for you.”

Craig took a sip from his cocktail and stood up. “You really fucked this up, Darlene,” he said and left.

    I can get that………… he would have felt better had she come up with the idea on her own rather than asking Mum. On the other hand, at least she cared enough to ask. Depends on his relationship with his mother.

    I love the leave — what a twist in the ending 🙂 Relationships are tough – but since she answered defensively, you knew it wasn’t going to be good for your guy. Great story — a part two would be interesting, but I like to fill in the blanks myself {creative wheels are turning}…. Thanks for joining us this week 🙂
