A Day on the Town
Today I went with my friend Mary and her husband Andrew to the Queen City to see the production of "The Color Purple." Oh my, it was such a great production. To see this play was a double treat in that "The Color Purple" is one of my favorite dramas and also because it's been a while since I've been to the theater.
After the show, we ate at this Japanese restaurant. The food was very delicious. Mary had the teriyaki chicken and California rolls, Andrew had the sushi, and I had the hibachi shrimp. Both Andrew and I had our own carafe of hot green tea. I watched the two of them share food and eat with their chopsticks, while I was content with my fork. Andrew tried to teach me how to use chopsticks, but I failed miserably. Maybe another time?
After leaving the restaurant, we stopped by Compare Foods because we wanted to check out their selection of ethnic food items. Plus, Andrew and Mary had never been there. I'm so glad that they enjoyed that shop. I was mainly looking for dry hominy so that I could prepare a pudding that I've been wanting to try. I saw two different kinds of hominy so I bought them both.
As it began to get dark, the three of us were fighting the tiredness that was creeping in, so we journeyed back feasting on plaintain chips and good conversation.
This was a really enjoyable day and I'm glad that Mary and Andrew thought of me to share their extra ticket with.
