"Mama," my eight-year-old son said. "I think we should light some candles for dinner."
Apparently tuna noodle casserole was bringing out the romantic side of the little man. "Okay, Bubba," I said. "I'll light some candles."
After the candles were lit, we sat down to eat.
"We need a little music to go with the candle light dinner."
Of course. "What kind of music would you like?"
He thought about that for a minute and then got up and went to the phone. He pressed a button to activate the ring tone. It was "Liebestraum" by Franz Liszt. "Perfect," he said. (He didn't even seem to mind that he had to get up every ten seconds to continue the music.)
Such was our candlelight dinner. So ladies and gentlemen, if you want a perfectly romantic dinner, make yourself some tuna noodle casserole, light a few candles, and grab your phones!
