I had hoped that the 40 bucks I spent would encourage Gary and I to try new restaurants! Go to new local attractions! Own new leather coats! Live our lives to the fullest! This coupon book was a doorway- on one side, our current lifestyle of going to the same pub two nights a week and slowly crawling closer to death; on the other, a whirlwind of excitement and wish fulfillment and half-price curry takeaway!
I now realize the truth. That's a lot to ask from a coupon book.
So last night, when we both came home from work around 6 and opened the door to a blast-furnace of a beastly hot apartment, I grabbed that coupon book, dusted off the cover and found us a two-for-one Mexican restaurant.
Should you find yourself seeking relief this summer, may I recommend El Sombrero Mexicano on 17th Avenue? They have aaaawesome air conditioning.
Oh, and the Combo plate is pretty darn good, too.
