The Silliness Part Saturday night my mom watched the kids so Bill and I could go out. Alone. Like a date. It was last minute and since Abby Normal was playing just down the road from us, we decided to stay on our side of town. We got a last minute reservation at Molinari's, a nice middle-of-the-road restaurant/wine bar. Bill had his usual touch of luck and got the parking spot right in the front of the restaurant, which is all glass windows right on the parking lot. As Bill turns the key off in the ignition, something happened and he locked us inside the car just as I was opening the door and the alarm system got triggered. Lights flashing. Horn honking. Diners staring. As we rolled out of the car with laughter, I yelled, "The Polewchaks have arrived for their 8p reservation, just in case there was any doubt!" We are still laughing about it. Maybe it's one of those had to be there things, but we haven't had a good laugh together like that in a while. It's true. Laughter is good for the soul.
