How I did it: I got called into work yesterday morning to fill in for a sick manager. I had to work from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Mark's new work schedule is from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. His new hours make it difficult for us to spend time together. It was hard enough when he worked 4 til midnight. We wanted to spend the day together before he went to work, but it didn't work out.
He surprised me by taking the night off last night. He looked online to see what was playing at the drive in. He packed a cooler with Coke (my favorite) and had a bag of snacks. Plenty of chocolate so we (ok, so I) could male it through 3 movies. We picked up a pizza on the way. We had everything we needed. He even packed a blanket because he knew it would get chilly.
We got to the drive in about an hour early. We found "the perfect spot" (in the center, but close to the restroom LOL) and dug into our pizza.
The first movie was Dark Shadows. I pretended to be scared and Mark "protected" me. We held hands and cuddled like teenagers. I haven't made out at a drive in in more years than I can remember. I made a discovery... it's a lot more fun as an adult because I knew what would happen at the end of the night, and I knew it wouldn't be in the back seat of his SUV : )
The drive in has 4 different screens. Each shows 2 movies, with the first movie repeating around 1 a.m. We watched both movies, then changed screens to watch The Avengers. Unfortunately I didn't make it through it. I fell asleep not long after it started. Mark drove us home. When I woke up this morning he had already cleaned out the truck.
This was the easiest goal I've ever accomplished. I didn't have to do anything for this besides show up. Read how I did it… 22 months ago
