To celebrate the end of 2009 and beginning of 2010, we went out to dinner with Jason (who works with Mike) & Ines. They ganged up with Mike and decided (behind my back) that we would be going to dinner at a Sushi restaurant. I had never had sushi before...and in the past I told Mike that it was something that I had no desire to try. Mike likes to encourage me to try new things and I guess he figured I wouldn't complain about it as much if we were with another couple.
When we pulled up in the parking lot, Jason & Ines pulled out hats for all of us to wear. Yes, it was only 5:00 pm and no one else in the restaurant looked ready to party...but we still wore our hats with pride.
Since I'd never been to a sushi restaurant before, I let the others order for me. The appetizers were delicious (veggies and pork...no raw fish...whew!). For dinner they ordered me the Incredible Roll. I was so thankful when I found out that it comes cooked. When I thought of eating sushi, I had envisioned me holding a raw fish by the tail (the fish staring me in the eyes) and slurping it down my throat whole. (Made you shiver...didn't it!?) Can you imagine how excited I was when I learned that you don't have to eat raw fish? Of course, I don't know if the sushi guru's would count the cooked stuff as sushi...but since we were eating strange (to me) food at a sushi restaurant...it counts in my books!
Me and the love of my life.
