LilZ and I went out to eat at our favorite restaurant last night (one of about fifty…we have a lot of favorite restaurants). It’s called Nikko’s and we go there once in awhile as a family, but we never sit in the Tatami (sp?) room, which is the room where you sit on floor level. LilZ loves sitting in that room, but there is always someone in the group who would rather have a real chair with back support (damn grown-ups).
We had a nice time, just the two of us, and ate sushi, eel, and tofu. I didn’t use one bit of silverware, even “drinking” my miso soup by holding the bowl in my hands like they suggest. I’m totally cool like that. I’m not a pro at chop-sticks, but I’m definitely good enough that I can finish a meal with them within a decent amount of time.
