On her way home from work, she stopped at his work for a visit. He had a monitoring job with the university so, she could come by when he worked to talk for a bit instead of waiting until seven. He was surprised to see her come through the doors but greeted her with an appropriate hello, as they exchanged smiles.
They talked about their day briefly until it came down to the big Friday question, “What’s for dinner?”
He made it very easy this time by blurting out, “I really want spaghetti and meatballs.” He knew in saying this that she would immediately agree. Spaghetti and meatballs was her favorite dish ever since she was young and her dad would make it for her.
She left his work then to get the ingredients for the meatballs and to organize the place a bit.
When he got home, he was in an amazing mood, full of smiles. She loved seeing this side of him. They cooked side by side making sauce and noodles whiles the meatballs cooked in the oven. He chose an Italian wine that they enjoyed with dinner while watching Netflix. At this point, it was safe to say they had an addiction. They loved winding down that way after a long day of work.
She, however, still had work the next day at her other job making cookies. The thought of that reminded her that there was cookie dough in the fridge. She ate it straight from the tub while he preheated the oven to bake a few cookies.
Their eyes got heavy and they decided it was time for bed. The week had been long as they fell asleep into the weekend.
