I Am an 80-Year-Old Woman
A brief description of dining out last evening:
We decided to go to a restaurant we loved 20 years ago -- the same restaurant, in fact, where our wedding reception was held.
It is no longer there. Apparently it hasn't been for some time.
So we re-grouped and chose another restaurant, The Bagel, because we knew it had parking.
I ordered the Mish Mosh -- a half-gallon-sized bowl of chicken soup with matzo ball, kreplach, rice, noodles and kasha -- and hot tea. I commented on the fiber content of kasha.
I re-used the tea bag three times, ate only an eighth of my soup, and took the rest home, commenting that I could get two meals out of the leftovers.
As we got back into the car, I commented on how I hoped to get home and into my pajamas before the news came on.
