Sweetie and I have decided to sign up for a cooking class as a couples-y, romance-y thing to do. That wasn't my first choice -- my first choice was to hook us up each with a spyder paintball gun and head to a Paintball competition.
What could be more romantic than arming ourselves with paramilitary gear and then engaging in war games for a day, I wondered -- and I learned that, to Sweetie, cooking is more romantic than shooting at each other. Live and learn.
I even had the perfect spot to get our gear: ChoicePaintballGuns.com, a site that offers the best prices on the best paintball guns and gear, gear ranging from beginner stuff like Sweetie and I would want, to tournament-level equipment for speedball paintball competitions.
And I know, I know, Sweetie maybe has a point that "Fine Italian Cooking" Classes will be romantic and all, but it's almost certain the classes won't include stuff like this:
And while "Italian Dinners" say romance, you can also spell romance "p-a-i-n-t-b-a-l-l s-n-i-p-e-r r-i-f-l-e", can't you? You can in my book.
So I didn't win this round of the romance activity choice, but I'm going to keep lobbying for paintball for the next time around. Because with the kind of stuff I can get at ChoicePaintballGuns.com, and the customer service they offer, and the best prices, and all the help they can give, it just makes too much sense not to spend a romantic day running through the woods with camouflage gear on shooting paintballs at Sweetie.
