Hey. What'cha doin'?

Me? Nothin' much. Just sittin' here eatin' my Sushi for lunch.

Yeah, no big deal. It's just that Pooka makes me Sushi for my lunch, that's all.

Yeah. Little stipe of Wasabi down the middle. Rolled tight, rice all seasoned and what-not.

What's that you say? Your wife doesn't make you Sushi for your lunch? I'm sorry to hear that.

Also, unfortunately for you, the greatest woman in the world, ever, is already spoken for.

sounds nice - the boss is away, my production is nil. Had a buffalo chicken wrap for lunch - very tasty.

Just got back from CVS where I bought a card for my wife for Mother's Day. It's Sunday, you know. Just in case it slipped your mind.

My mom is traveling in Peru right now. So outside of sending her an e-mail, I'm off the hook as far as she's concerned.

But for my wife, the mother of my lovely children, I still need to finalize the plans for Sunday. After serving breakfast in bed, it will be a hike somewhere. Just got to figure out where. We'll want to go somewhere nice, but not crowded, and not something we've done a hundred times already. Oh, and it should be within an hour's drive. Have to research this a little. Oh, and I need to figure out the breakfast in bed menu and shop on Saturday.

Sushi. Blech. You can have your stinkin' sushi. :p

I'm looking for work. Paying work, that is. Got plenty of the non-paying kind around here, like laundry and mopping.

Know anyone who needs a good copywriter?

Me? Oh, I'm just back from a leg waxing, getting ready for summer and all. And a little shopping. Gotta get some shopping in, you know.

Just, you know, girl stuff. Lots and lots of girl stuff.



Girl stuff is fun!

I'm on the phone.
[Dials Mrs. Dallas]
Me: You know, Pooka makes sushi for Flint's lunch.
Her: So?
Me: So? Come on dammit, you're my wife. I expect some standards here. And frankly, Pooka is really outclassing you right now.
Her: <snort>
Me: I know you thought those retro glasses you got would be good enough to keep up, but that's wishful thinking I'm afraid. You're going to have to do better.
Her: So... sushi? For your lunch?
Me: Well, that's what Pooka does.
Her: But you fucking hate fish.
Me: Oh . . . . yeah. That's right.
Her: <mumble.. something about a map and finding something>
Me: Well anyway, I'll see you later after work.
Her: OK, seeya. I'm fixing salmon for dinner.

You crack me up, Steve.


Hey Flint, what does Pooka actually put in your sushi, besides wasabi? Because I've made it a couple of times for dinner, but I'm always too chicken to actually use raw fish in it, because I just can't fathom the stuff I get from the grocery store being safe enough. And I'd be even more uneasy if I knew it was going to sit in a lunch box for a few hours before consumption.

I'll get her to post a better explanation of what's in it (because I'lll probably mess this up) but suffice it to say that my lunch Sushi doesn't have any fish or raw fish in it, just, like avacado and fake crab and stuff. Oh and you get your high-grade fish frozen, and prepare it while it is still frozen.

Actually Sushi doesn't mean raw fish--that's Sashimi. Sushi actually refers to the special rice used in the rolls (I just learned this...from Pooka).

What, no pics (of the sushi)?????

Wished I could get my wife to make sushi, but she is sooooo busy peeling my grapes, keeping my bath water warm, and other wonderful things I need to get back to...

@Clodfobble: You live in Austin...go to Whole Foods and ask for "Sushi Grade" fish.
(I know I said Sushi doesn't mean fish, this is actually a misnomer, but it is what you ask for, for whatever reason.)

I am going to freaking throttle my pets and THEN I will get some sleep and THEN my life will start working out and THEN everything will be fucking roses.
