I had Tom over this weekend for the 6th and 7th nights of Hanukkah. For the 6th Night, we ordered out and lit the Menorah. We played Wii and Tom is a better Wii golfer than I am. We’re both good at Wii Bowling.
On the 7th Night of Hanukkah, I cooked dinner for Tom and we lit the Menorah together. I said the blessing, lit the first few candles and passed it on to him. This was his first-time celebrating Hanukkah.
I made chicken marsala and this was his first time having this dish. Tom thought it was delicious and told me, “babe, you’re such a good cook.” I blushed a little, okay, a lot. I enjoyed cooking for him.
Game of dreidel, which he won.
Before I made dinner, we played Left 4 Dead on his laptop, then listened to Russian music. We both have an affinity for Russian culture. We had no idea what these artists were singing about, but we laughed and enjoyed ourselves.
I decided to play şebnem ferah’s Yalniz, a Turkish power ballad, and Tom was shocked when it turned into Turkish metal. He did like the sound, however. It’s nice to have someone I can share foreign music with.
Tom has truly been a blessing.
We went to a local bar and saw Scattertrain. Mark, the lead singer, was so happy to see me since I haven’t seen them in 5 years. Mom and dad always went to see them, but I always had other things going on. So glad mom suggested that Tom and I see them. Tom also enjoyed Scattertrain.
We were laughing, having a good time, and I was singing to Tom. Tom sang to me too. I sang these songs to him:
He sang these songs to me:
We laughed when they played this song, and he sang it to me:
We laughed together, and we embraced, while giggling up a storm. Such a great evening.
Last night was the last night of Hanukkah and Hanukkah 2021 was the best yet! Next, Christmas.
