Last night I drove an hour and a half, all the way down to Bothell, to rekindle 10 year old love. My good friend who I grew up with, until he moved, invited me to come down for a date and then attend this super awesome Mormon dance with a boat load of kids. So I drove down and down and down until I finally reached him. It had been a few months since I had seen him and it was pretty cool to be able to hang out with him.
Fast forward to the date part.
He drove us down to a popular hangout/restaurant where there are tons of milkshake flavors. Can you guess what we got there? Milkshakes! It was really fun and very inexpensive. We sat at a booth and talked for about an hour and had a really great time catching up on each others lives. Dates like this are dates that everyone should experience, I think. Dates that are incredibly inexpensive but insanely fun. You don't need to go out to dinner and then go see a movie to call it a date, or go spend a lot of money to make it a date. You don't even have to spend money at all! All you have to do is make a plan, pick an activity to do, and do it! It's quite simple.
After we got done with our chat and our milkshakes, we headed out to the Epicenter dance. Epicenter dances are huge dances in Lynnwood full of crazy Mormon kids who have a lot of fun without the use of substances, dirty dancing, or unclean music.
At the dance, we danced like crazy and had such a fun time. I got a chance to meet some of his friends and he met some of my friends. Oddly enough, a big group of kids from my stake were there. It was really fun to see them there and party hard with them!
When the dance had finished, a guy in which I had slow danced with asked for my number! Haha! I haven't gotten a text from him yet.
The night had ended and we went back to get my car, and I thanked my 10 year old love for a fun night. Then I proceeded to drive back home, an hour and a half of just me, and every playlist I have ever created.
Friday nights can be fun, without an bad things, just good music, good friends, and the desire to have a good time by keeping it clean.
