"Surprise Me" Romantic Picnic Lunch
(Brisbane, Q, Australia)
I will pre-empt this story by saying I am now married to this man, despite our first date!
We decided to go on a romantic picnic lunch at the Mt Coot-tha Botanic gardens. My husband decided that we should bring something along - a food - to surprise the other for the picnic. Well, I am not imaginative, so I went and bought small bread rolls with cocktail frankfurts in them! (Hey, I thought they looked interesting!).
After producing these, and having them received in silence, my now husband pulls out oysters. He didn't realise that I didn't eat oysters .... Then he surprised me with anchovies, and olives .... yup, didn't eat those either .... So he went for the final straw and gave me a beautiful long stemmed red rose, but as he passed it to me the rose bud fell off, and I was left holding a stick with thorns!
At least we got our food preferences sorted out that day!
Thanks for sharing Julie, that's so funny! I'm not sure what's worse cocktail frankfurts or anchovies!
