Overheard at the Sushi Bar


Have you seen these funny sushi pillows? They’re made of cotton, but they’re making me hungry!

So there I was today, out having sushi with my boys–who I should add, were very polite lunch dates–and as we enjoyed our little conveyor belt sushi lunch, I couldn’t help but overhear the wild spat between a woman and a man at the table next to ours, which went like this …

Woman: “I’m sick of your emotional vacancy, your complete and utter lack of regard for my feelings. I’m done. I’m done with your sh*#. We’re done. We’re through. Are you hearing me? We’re through. You and me. You and I. Done. D.O.N.E. done.”

Man (to waiter): “Check please.”

Waiter: “How was everything?”

Man (with huge smile, which looked genuine): “Great!”

Woman (smug, angry, crying): “We’re done.”

Man: Yes we are.”

They left in separate directions.

And sushi always seemed like such a happy food. Sigh.

P.S. My 3 year old can put down a plate of tempura and two full avocado rolls in under a half hour. He is 25 percent Japanese. Must be in the genes!

    My family uncle a Japanese store and they get stuff like that all the time from vendors. I just saw a musubi pillow at their house this past weekend. Very comfy!
