Tonight was date night. This was the conversation I had taking the babysitter home.
Babysitter: Did you have a nice date?
Me: Yes, it was nice.
Babysitter: What did you guys do?
Me: Well, we went to the high school and watched a movie.
Babysitter: In Mr. K's classroom?
Me: Yes. On the projector.
Babysitter: What movie did you guys watch?
Me: Well... it wasn't really a movie. We go to bed at 10 pm, so we miss watching Castle on tv. So we watch episodes online.
Babysitter: Oh. Sounds fun.
Aren't we just so lame? We picked up a hot chocolate at McD's and then watched a tv episode on the projector in Ryan's classroom sitting in our camp chairs for our 90 minute date before heading home to put the kids to bed. But how do I explain trying to be creative on a (small) budget to a 16-year-old?
