Plans Dashed or Crisis Averted?

My Sweet Husband wrote me over two weeks ago and let me know that Cheescake Factory, that bastion of the chain dinner, was having a special the end of this month on their cheesecake--only $1.50 a slice, instead of the usual (and outrageous) $7.95. On the whole, neither of us is anything of a Cheescake Factory fan, but cheap dessert as an excuse to go on a date?? Sign me up.

He emailed this morning and wrote that he wanted to go out after dinner, just we grown-ups, and have a Dessert Date--he'd had it written on his calendar this whole time. So thoughtful!! And then I learned that it was LAST night, the 30th, and not tonight, the 31st and we'd both been grievously misinformed. Ah, well. Maybe we can think of some other mini-date that involves large quantities of sugar and low-level ambience...

May I suggest the following:
Milkshakes at Steak N' Shake,
Krispy Kremes eaten in your station wagon-but only if they were purchased when the Red Light was on, and/or the ever-faithful McDonald's Apple Pie. All of these suggestions meet the cheap, loads-of-sugar and minimal ambiance requirements. Bon Appetit!
