I now know the magic number. The magic number is six. The magic number is six because it takes an order of six sushi rolls, as I learned last night, to earn me a sushi boat =D
As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I recently passed my road test this past Tuesday, and five days later, I was still in a celebratory mood. So I made it a point to take my family out to dinner last night – my treat – as a thank you for their help teaching me to drive and chauffeuring me around while I couldn’t drive on my own. After crossing our fingers that the thunderstorm and pouring rain would stop before we actually had to go out, we headed for a sushi restaurant nearby.
We had a key west maki roll, a california roll, a shrimp tempura roll, a caterpillar roll (no, it does not have real caterpillars in it), a hand roll, and two other rolls whose names I don’t remember. That’s actually an order of seven things, but I think we could’ve gotten the boat without the hand roll. And of course, I always have to have my drink; this time it was a coconut milkshake. For dessert, we got fried ice cream in green tea flavor with a cherry on top. Yum!
We’ve dined out at sushi restaurants plenty of times, but we’ve never ordered enough to get a sushi boat, so this was a big deal in terms of sushi-eating. After we were presented with this loveliness, I told my sibling, “this boat just kind of made my day, right here.” My sister’s reply: “We just reached a new level of awesomeness.”
