Outgoing

Being outgoing covers so many different social situations. Recently we had a bit of a family get together at my mother’s place over the weekend. I was charged with peeling & cutting up four cucumbers for my mom’s famous cucumber salad. While I was taking care of the cucumbers all alone in the kitchen, my mind was free to ponder & rove over ridiculous nonsense. When I had finished the task at hand I went back to my mother with a silly story to let her know it was ready for the seasoning & such. I said, “The battle was fierce & brutal, but in the end I won out & flayed the renegade cucumbers. Even now their dismembered corpses await the application of your potion, so that they may know their second, brief life of service to the kingdom.” Naturally we shared a good laugh & one of my nieces made the observation that a lot of though no doubt went into that report, which just made me laugh all the harder. Yes, I had a bit of time to consider how I would amuse myself & anyone in earshot with the notice, rather than being boring & just saying, “The cucumbers are ready for your attention.”

Okay, so I digressed a bit there, lol. I have gathered together an ensemble from Lane Bryant that would be great for any such social occasion. Whether you make up silly little stories or not, you might as well be stylish. 😉

Flirty Night Out

While you might be finding some distraction from the heat by having a nice night out I will attempt to amuse you with a story of one of my date nights gone horribly wrong. When I turned 18 my man wanted to know what he could get for me, I told him I had never had Japanese food & would really like to try sushi. He found a nice restaurant that claimed to be a Japanese delicatessen, so I got all dolled up & off we went. Turns out there was absolutely nothing traditional on the menu with the exception of sake which I was not only underage for but had no interest in. The restaurant also turned out to be one of those where they prepare the food at the table, but our chef had no skills at entertaining & didn’t even try. With all of that they also forced us to share a table with a couple of other groups, which included an obnoxious drunk woman who was sitting right beside me & continued downing the sake while trying to engage me in her lilting conversation (she really had no concept of personal space either). The whole experience was awful, I have never been back there & would never recommend it to anyone. On a side note, once we were seated I suddenly realized I had been to that farce of a restaurant once when I was much younger with my then bff. The staff had insulted me as a child when I told them I wanted chop sticks & when they couldn’t talk me out of it they brought me a set they had rigged with a rubber band & a sugar packet (because we all know occidental preteens are incapable of using chop sticks). Too bad I no longer recall the name of the place or I would totally bad mouth them for real.

On a sunnier note, I found some cute selections from Pink Basis that will render any date night memorable, hopefully in a good way. 😉 For the most part I went with my all time favorite color; purple ❤
