(Too bad there isn't a 'General Discussion' forum for this sort of thing, eh? Meh, they do tend to get quite laden, though, so maybe it's a good thing.) Anyway, we talk a lot about memories that we have held onto through our past lives here. (Well, duh! It's a reincarnation site!) But what memory from this current life would you choose to carry into your next life (lives) if you could? No fair picking your wedding or the birth of your kids. That's too easy. Mine would be our 5th anniversary. We're car nuts, so we went to the drag races in Stockton and had a blast. We had a gift card for the Cheesecake Factory in Sacramento, which is a reallllllly nice restaurant, so we got ourselves cleaned up and went for dinner. The place was crowded. It was Friday, so that was to be expected. We had wanted an inside table, but they just weren't clearing out fast enough. The sun had already gone down and we were getting desperately hungry! We finally told them we'd take an outside table. They looked and one was available, but it was tucked in an out of the way corner, so nobody liked to sit there. We took it. There were no lights at that end of the patio, so they lit some candles. The sky was a gorgeous, deep shade of blue darkening to purple. There wasn't a cloud in sight, and the temperature was perfect. Because we were in such an inconvenient table, we got complimentary drinks, and the waitress made sure we got our food fast. The food was perfect! We each ordered something we liked and something we had never tried before. (Avocado egg rolls! Yum!) The music system was quietly playing every song we loved when we were teenagers! As the night took the helm we dined with a chandelier of stars overhead and no clatter of the restaurant to bother us. We had the most delicious cheesecake for dessert. Then a local car show had ended, and a parade of awesome hot rods and sweet customs rolled by, giving us a great show of these beautiful machines. As we finished the dinner (that we didn't have to pay for thanks to the gift card!), the horizon came alive with fireworks as an amusement park in that direction closed for the night. I remember telling my husband "If you planned this, wow! You're good!"
