Don’t think I’ve had a proper Valentine’s Day in years.
Not that I’ve not wanted to. It’s just that it’s not something you can do on your own.
Like I said, I’ve been trying to do things differently these days. After all, if you keep doing what you do, you keep getting what you get.
Me: You free to do something [next week]?
Her: A chance to spend time with Logan Lo? Yes, please.
Me: (laughing) Great. I’ve got a few things in mind.
Had my sitter watch the kid and had the Firecraker meet me outside of my pad.
While it’s great that the boy seems to be fine with her, I do want to try and manage how often he sees her because everything is so new.
Having said that, I brought her to a private sneak peek of a building that was just gut renovated a couplea blocks from my pad.
As soon as we walked in, someone took our coats, and within a few minutes…
Me: That would be lovely – thank you very much.
She’d never been to anything like this so I showed her around a bit but she got the hang of it pretty early and was soon off doing her own thing, checking things out.
Should mention that the bathrooms at this place were nicer than my entire apartment.
Her: This shower is bigger than most rooms.
Me: We should get a place like this.
Her: Let’s do it!
In any case, I put on my old personality and started making friends.
Me: Do you have a card?
Him: (fumbling) No, I…
Me: (reaching in my jacket pocket) No worries, take one of mine. Logan. And you are…?
The Firecracker wanted to stay longer than I did, because it was all so new and fun.
But we had dinner plans.
Me: Sushi’s still good?
Her: You put that in my head, so, yes, I’m definitely up for some sushi.
I’m still trying to understand how much she eats. I’m used to eating a ton so I ordered waaaaaay too much sushi. She had a normal human’s portion while I…did not.
Her: I’m so stuffed.
Me: I’M so stuffed. That says a lot.
We actually got each other things for Valentine’s Day. What I got for her is for her and we’ll leave it that.
Me: I always slant practical versus romantic. It’s just my nature.
Her: No, these are awesome, thank you!
She, in turn, handed me a heart-shaped box. I gotta admit, I was a bit disappointed when I saw it because I don’t eat sweets. At least, not normal sweets that I don’t bake myself.
Her: It’s not what you think it is. Open it.
And I did and saw that she bought me a heart-shaped box of…dried meat products.
Her: I know you don’t eat carbs so…
Me: Holy shitballs, this is awesome!
Her: You like it?
Me: It’s perfect. Thank you.
Afterward, because she didn’t live too far from the restaurant I walked her home.
Me: Did you have a nice night?
Her: I had you, a nice event, and a great dinner. So, yes.
Me: (laughing) Good. I did as well.
Her: This wouldn’t be a bad life, Logan Lo.
Me: No, Firecracker. Not at all.
Location: this afternoon, watching the boy hit a takedown and get mount on the UWS
Music: you and me, we’re not friends (Spotify)
