A Long Awaited Night out

Ever since having our first child, my wife and I hadn’t had a chance to go out in a long time. We’ve been busy with work and taking care of the kid, so we haven’t had much time to do anything else. We wanted to have a moment alone to ourselves, so I asked my brother if he could babysit for one night while we went out. He agreed and I looked for an Italian restaurant San Diego residents could enjoy. There were a lot of choices that all looked good, so I looked at the ones that had the best reviews from people who dined at them.

I figured if I was going to be going out with my wife, and there was a chance that we might not get to go out again for a while, I might as well make it an experience to remember. I selected a restaurant that had good reviews and one that was also known for serving some of the best food in the area. My wife and I dressed up for the occasion and I told my brother to call us if anything goes wrong. My wife was worried about leaving the baby at first, but after a little coaxing, I convinced her that everything would be fine.

While at the restaurant, my wife and I started with some appetizers and a salad. It had been so long since we had the restaurant experience that we forgot that bread usually comes with dinner. My wife instantly wanted the lasagna as soon as she saw it on the menu, and I wanted to have the spaghetti. I tried not to eat too much bread before the entree came, because I didn’t want to fill up on it and become too full to eat my spaghetti.
