Two Versions of a Date Night...

My daughter, Caroline, and I were enjoying a daddy/daughter date night at our local Subway last evening as an elderly couple took seats at a table near us. Dressed in matching bright orange tee-shirts, the couple carefully divided their foot-long sub sandwich between them.

They each proceeded to pull out a book of crossword puzzles. Pencils in hand, they then reached up and turned off their hearing aids. Contentedly munching on their sandwiches, the couple silently began to work their crossword puzzles.

Caroline and I finished up our sandwiches and slid out of the booth. Our date night companions at the next table paid no attention to our departure... lost as they were in their silent crossword reverie.
