I'm a bad girlfriend...
... unless I can fix it today, before it's too late.
So, as some people know, getting a date with Yoshi & Joz can be very difficult because of our busy schedules, as well as the fact that Yoshi is, well... anti-social.
So I have a friend at work who has been pestering me for over a month to come up with a date that we can all get together and have a little "double date." When I finally got Yoshi to agree to picking a night this week, my friend was thrilled and put it into her calendar IN INK. And she began planning for the evening's details right away, making sure that her boyfriend wouldn't make any other plans, etc.
Too bad the date is scheduled for TONIGHT, the same night as Game 7 of the showdown between the Red Sox & the Yankees. (To be fair, who knew that there was going to be a Game 7 when the plans were made.)
I will never hear the end of it if I make Yoshi go on this date with me... I can already hear it, "Wah, wah BASEBALL! Blah, blah YANKEES vs RED SOX HISTORIC GAME!"
But after all the teeth-pulling my friend did to get tonight's plan together, if I ask for a rain check, I think I might actually get clobbered.
On the other hand, it REALLY IS raining today...
UPDATE: So I didn't get clobbered AND I got us a rain check for another night next week. Now Yoshi will have no excuses and HAS to come out with us next week. :)

Remember how I got an important dinner postponed last week...
Excerpt: ... for Yoshi because of the "HISTORIC RED SOX VS YANKEES" game? Well, I *know* that it is now Game 4 for the World Series and possibly "ANOTHER HISTORIC RED SOX GAME," but I have run out of excuses &...

Well maybe you can work out a compromise and go somewhere where they will show the game? That way Yosh gets to watch the game and you get to go out on a double date? Just a suggestion.
OK, yes it is date night, BUT it is GAME 7, and if you care about me at all you will try and find a way for Yosh to see the game, which is very historic. GO SOX! tivo could work but it just wont be the same... oh what a quandry. but it is the sox, and they better beat those evil yanks. and especially that cocky mr. jeeter.... good luck tonight, whatever happens. -prof
The yosh is NOT anti-social. The husband and I got to see the yosh without joz once even! :)
Then again, neither of us care too much about baseball, so we don't know the significance of this...guess we really ARE homosexuals...
You did the right thing. Tonight's game was not to be missed.
Whoo-hoo! GO SOX!!!
thanks for letting me watch the game. it was worth it. of course, i'm still trying to figure out how to get out of next week's plans...
Yosh! shh...don't forget...we're having a guys' night out--you bring the flan, and i'll bring the thongs...woo hoo! ;)
Yeah, don't you have a DVR?
We have TWO TiVos, but "it's just not the same" to time-shift a game like this.
