New Brighton Beach has been a dream campsite. I literally meant that. Every year I would try to make a reservation and it would be completely booked. This year, I was lucky to find #75 available, not to mention it is a premium site with a premium price. We were excited to get the kids out, and couldn't believe things had worked out so well, MattLove had the week off from school due to budget cuts, I was ready to show Trinity the camping life and SO was all for it.
It seemed as though I had to wait 11 years for SO to settle our unfinished business, but it was more like waiting 11 years for a camping spot to become available. Now for the moment some readers are waiting for, The Unfinished Business is the finale for why I jumped on top of the picnic table in Is Dating Like a Cattle Field. The incident was the evening's highlight, everyone around the campfire was excited to see me in KungFu action. I had seconds to try and stop SO from carrying out his threat of eating my portion of the shrimps if I didn’t get there in time.
It was all fun and game until we realized he indeed ate the last of my grilled shrimps. Yes, and I had brought it too. Now you know this is a huge deal in my world, since I love seafood. And given that I haven't had dinner, I was furious. SO couldn't be more sorry, and promised that if we ever go back to New Brighton Beach that he would personally grill prawns for me like that night at the campfire to make up or to finish the unfinished business.
Just for the record, my SO is a gentleman and one of the most generous people I know. You couldn't catch him behaving naughty like that ever. Like his auntie said: "He is a very unique nephew & I love him for it... The mold was thrown away when he became the man he is." I teased him about being the mold that was thrown away, but since he doesn't read my blog, I can write freely. Wink. By Chance We Met talked about how we finally met face to face at campfire.
If I could trade in my 13 Men Wishes for one wish. It would be for god to make more men like him. Instead of seeing broken hearts, and turbulence relationships, I will see more happiness and harmony, and women being more appreciated. There won't be Open Positions for Wives.
This is just his love angle, BTW. SO has great grilling skills as well, especially with shrimp, so we had the most wonderful dinner-out on the beach the first evening of camping. Now if he can only find diets that work for both of us, we would be in great shape too.
