A trip to Japan
Joel and I had a date night last night. We decided to try a Japanese restaurant that we had never been to before. The moment we walked in was the beginning of me feeling like I was so out of place. The food was great... although I ordered what I thought was going to be vegetables but little did I know they were deep fried vegetables. Anyways, the waitress first brings out two hot towels. Not quite sure what to do with that..... then she brought me my salad and I soon realized that my only option was chopsticks. Not quite a pro at those! By this time, the place is starting to fill up. After trying to eat with chopsticks and then realizing I was not too good at it, Joel asked for a fork for me. Yep, I was the only one in there using a fork! The food was actually great although I prefer my vegetables without batter. Joel spent his first few years of life in Hawaii and is used to this way of eating and the food..... I came from a family who ate meatloaf. He spent most of the dinner laughing at me and I spent most of the dinner wishing I had taken a course on eating with chopsticks!
Then we went to a few different stores to shop around. We went to TJ Maxx.. which I love... and they have an entire section for perfume and cologne. The best part is that the cologne they had was popular 10 years ago. Eternity, United Colors of Benetton, Sunflower, Liz Claiborne, and the list goes on. Joel sprayed the Eternity so much that we had to drive with the windows down the rest of the night!
