The Story of A Night:
A husband and wife, having just finished eating a dinner of pasta and cucumber salad, sat on the couch to converse.  Her blood felt heavy in her veins, a sadness slowing her bones.  As the sun set, their eyes began to droop.  Feeling unable to stomach bedding themselves at 8:30pm, they decided to put on their shoes, coats, scarves; she painted her lips.  They braced themselves against the spring wind, mighty and surprising.  Arriving at their favorite local tea shop, she ordered her usual Chai and he some rare form of Jasmine.  They decided to accept the cozy invitation of the lounge chairs and began to peruse the random assortment of books.  She took up a photographic homage to Marlene Dietrich; he leafed through a travel guide to tea shops in the Northwest. Classical music played overhead, the mystical scent of incense infused the air.  Afterward, they stopped for gelato and walked the blocks home; their energy and moods much elevated and invigorated by the fresh air and whimsical spontaneousness.
In short, they felt better.
