raw fish?!?!?

my mom always taught me to chew with my mouth closed and not take too big bites, but tonight i was having a hard time doing that.

i went out for sushi with my dad.

i still remember the first time i heard about sushi. my thoughts probably ran around the lines of "ew!" but then i tasted my first piece of sushi, and i've loved sushi since then. but really, if you think about sushi, it sounds kinda gross. ok so there's rice. then seaweed. i mean this thing was floating around the ocean! ppl probably stepped on it! and then there's raw fish, my sister says it's practically aiver min hachai! but the other funny thing about sushi is that it's become such a jewish thing. every wedding, dinner, function, that used to have a viennese table, potato kugel and chopped liver, now has a sushi bar.

so my dad and i were sitting there eating sushi, and one of the rolls we ordered were huge. my dad and i both looked at eachother at the same time, trying to eat it, and burst out laughing!

(but seriously, my dad's the best person to go out with. he doesn't care if i act like a little kid-nothing really immature, just blowing the straw coverings at eachother, something we've been doing for ages. don't worry, no one was looking)

That's so nice you have a good time with your father like that.

I had sushi one time, a really long time ago at a wedding, and I loved it, but then ever since then I never had again, dunno why and now I'm afraid to taste it again even though I liked it the first time, cause I forgot how it tastes.

i still cannot bring myself to eat the raw fish sushi. lol. I am one of those people that only orders veggie rolls..hehe..
ohh...and we make sushi at home, while we sit around as a family and make fun of stupid things we read/heard about throughout the day/week/month ... fun times that sushi brings. :)
