Not only that, she sorted out the ordering of food while I dealt with emails on the phone. It was a random restaurant we walked into without reservations. Food will not be mindblowing, but it would be decent. That would do. I probably ignored her for 20 minutes while finishing up emails and a couple of messages. She didn't mind. However, the emphasis is on the space that she gave me. That is what I mostly need from girlfriends. I'm glad they're on the same wavelength.
And she gave me extra pieces of egg and portobello mushrooms, taking all the ham. :) We had mains to share. Pasta. Carbs. I needed carbs. Comfort food. It was a weekday, but she didn't mind a bit of whisky. Off we went for a couple of drams. She sat with me, provided counsel, laughs and conversation. Nairce. The night ended in a mellow, and unhassled fashion. All credit due to this darling girl.
Immensely grateful to the girlfriend for indulging me this evening.
