It takes all of his willpower not to text her first thing in the morning, but he knows all too well how delicious the lie in on your day off feels, and damned if he’s going to ruin it for her.
Plus he’s got some thinking to do. What kind of date is chips, after all? It’s not a formal affair, at least he doesn’t think so; he could name half a dozen restaurants off the top of his head that would give them a fried potato experience that could very well eclipse all chips had before or since, but he doesn’t think that’s what Rose meant when she said he could take her out for chips. He doesn’t think that’s the kind of girl she is. Her refined palate and creative approach to cooking had been more than evident last night as she’d sent that exquisite parade of plates to him, but when she’d leaned in close and, tongue between her teeth, that hadn’t been a ploy to get a five star meal. Which means she’s either got a favorite chip shop in mind, or she wants him to take her to his favorite chip shop.
Standing at his counter, tea in one hand and toast halfway to his mouth in the other, the Doctor freezes. What is his favorite chip shop? What chip shops has he been to? He’s been to countless, surely, but suddenly he can’t name a single one. Every single chip he’s eaten in his life disappears as if it simply never happened, has been written over in time, has fallen out of his brain. He can’t even name the place down the street.
He’s going to make a bloody fool of himself.
