Oh boy. A post about religion. Don’t anyone get offended….
I work evenings. It is, in part, because of this my wife and I don’t get many chances to go out. What’s more, when we do usually the kids are in tow. I work in the investment field. The New York Stock Exchange is closed on Good Friday. When the NYSE has a day off, I have the night off from work….
Now I was raised Catholic, but started going to my wife’s church when we were married. Our church is not as strict about the whole abstinence and fasting thing as the Catholic church. So I sensed an opening…
I asked my wife if she thought we would be bad people/Christians if we went out on a date on Good Friday. Went out for a nice dinner and adult conversation.
She initially said “Yes”, but then thought about it and said, “No. Hey, Jesus went out to dinner on Good Friday!”
It has yet to be determined if we will go out on that night.
