Is there a "Selfies for Dummies" site?
This evening, Dave and I went out for dinner---just us; a date. I changed into a brand-new dress, chose the exactly right necklace and earrings, added my favourite wedge heels and did the make-up thing to what felt like perfection.
"Hmm" said I, "I could take a picture of me as a grown-up in a dress I really like, and post it on my blog and just relax and enjoy the compliments."
I couldn't figure out how to get a selfie that showed the dress without cutting off my head, or without showing just the top of a dress whose specialness is in the bottom half.
Never mind. Dave and I went to a place called Salt on Preston St., and got 600 times our money's worth in date qualities. The bartender introduced himself, remembered our names and used them until we left, the wine and the food were superlative, the owner came round and asked us if we were enjoying ourselves, and the bathroom was a place I could live in for the rest of my life. Photos were extraneous.
Just imagine a time we were together and you thought I looked the best I'd ever looked. Then add the magic of a couple of glasses of wine, flattering candlelight and the love of my life.
