Going out with them was a whole new experience. Kevin and I grew up in families where appetizers were never ordered, and when the waiter asked us what we would like to drink, our fathers would quickly state, "Water is fine," before anyone else had a chance to answer. That being said, when we go out to eat, we always look at the prices of the items, and usually end up sharing a meal. Cheapskates.
Tchelsey and Brandon made dining out an experience. We ordered four different appetizers, seven rolls of sushi, and one entree. As soon as something ran out that they liked, they would ask for more. Kevin and I looked at each other in awe. We never eat out like that. We stayed for about three hours, talking, laughing, sharing stories and eating non-stop. When the check came we didn't even care that the price was outrageous. The night was how eating out is supposed to be. And even though I think it is unwise to eat as much as you want whenever you want, it feels good sometimes to forget about money, and enjoy yourselves.
p.s. we took pictures of ourselves, but of course this is the only one that turned out.
p.p.s you would never know I lived in Japan for 8 years by the way I handle chopsticks...
