Am I insane?

After a day of fun and frivolity here I am going to leave you with one final question...

Am I insane?

In chatting with Mrs.G I have successfuly talked my way out of an evening by the fire, a vodka tonic, a califlower cheese and a night snuggled with the aforementioned Mrs. G
.. and into taking her out to a very nice but slightly pricey* Swiss restaurant
( slightly pricey.. like there is another type )

Re: Am I insane?

I was hoping this was going to be a Poll.


Grynchie....... rack up the brownie points mate....... you never know when you will need them.

You're not insane, this is 'forward thinking genius'.

Creating a bit of future leeway improves the probability that your next request will be approved (so make it a good one).

If she pulls back..... bring up the 'dinner' thing again.


"If you fail to plan, you plan to fail"


If this was a Poll, I would have said you were insane anyway

Re: Am I insane?

Mr G

I think the move is a wise one, a good meal can be followed by what you originally planned but enhanced because you will gain a feather in your cap...

I'm sure Mrs G will be far more snuggily with a belly full of tasty grub and no washing up

Enjoy your evening !

In an insane world, the sane man is mad.

But Mrs G had a fish and chips lunch just a few days ago! Methinks you are spoiling her!

My husband hasn't taken me out for a meal since lunchtime today - filet de perches (plat du jour) at the Auberge de Signy - delicious as always!

Mrs G, the fire, the vodka tonic and possibly the cauliflower cheese will be there tomorrow. The Swiss restaurant may not be without your patronage.

But more importantly, shouldn't this be in "Daily Life"?

Re: Am I insane?

The answer is 'yes, probably grynch'. But what is going on? I leave the forum for eight hours or so and return, only to find that all hell has broken loose

It's your moral duty to share the name and location of a restaurant that is merelyslightly pricey, because there is another type, the extremely pricey. in fact, that's the norm. Slightly pricey is what we have where other countries have cheap restaurants.

I'm not interested in whether you are sane or not. On EF the difference is irrelevant and the cases indistinguishable.

Re: Am I insane?

What's up with you man? Get home from work and demand your luxuries as is befitting of a man of your age and experience. If she wants fancy restaurants, doesn't she have friends to share kind of extravagance?
