Never Seen Before
Work is blowing up. If my experience is any indication, the economy should be starting to recover.
Tonight after a ridiculously long day at work when I was staffed on a new emergency fast track deal at 1:30 AM, I came home for a quick dinner before making myself available for additional document review and disclosure, if necessary.
E asked for Sushi. I obliged, because I'm trying to be a good wife (especially when I know I've been slipping on that front lately).
Our local Sushi joint is close. Good. Relatively reasonably priced. And tonight, there was a female sushi chef dressed in a red tunic with wide black color trim behind the sushi boat "U".
It really shocked me.
I don't think I've ever seen a female sushi chef before (but I can't be sure).
Anyone else? Am I just forgetting other encounters I must have had, or is this one of those things that doesn't usually happen?
Regardless, I like this place just a little bit more for bucking what is at a minimum a cultural norm, and may be, for all I know, a sexist prohibition.
E, of course, got no end of enjoyment out of accusing me of being sexist for liking the place more simply because it had a female chef...
