Girl Talk

Today, I had lunch with a good friend. We go way back. To show you how far back, I'd have to do an elaborate Yoga pose - say, a twisting half moon. In the end, I came away with this lesson - lunch with a good friend is better than preventive healthcare - more effective than two years of cognitive therapy - and five thousand times more tasty.

Just look at our lunch combos:

Chirashi

Ramen and Crab soup porridge
Yes. A far cry from my usual pickings of chicken nuggets and fries.

As for life's revelation induced by crying on a friend's shoulder? I kind of forgot what it was after the third round. It couldn't have been that ground breaking - like finding a way to enjoy a menstrual cycle. For that, I surely would've missed the boys drop off.

But the food was epic!

Did I say that already? That's what happens when the Honeymoon is over, folks - we hone in on our "One Track Mind." Men take sex and women take food. Regardless, it all ties into satiating an orifice.

And speaking of satiating, my friend is the third person to tell me that her doctor has ordered her to cease and desist on chocolate.

Apparently, chocolate + women over 40 = very funky developments

I have two words for that: Peanut Butter

On the 13th anniversary of my sister's passing, I thank my friend for spending the afternoon with me - and for lunch - and for the Girl Talk. You rock!

  1. I'm glad you had a good friend to share this tough day with you.

    I would say more, but I have to go eat chocolate. I only have 2 years and 3 months left to get all I can.

    1. Remember to wash it down with plenty of red wine. From a box.

  2. Big hugs to you, Nami. Nothing like a true sisterhood and a big bowl of ramen to ease the soul. xxx

    1. Oh, don't you know it! And the Ikura (salmon roe) on the Chirashi-sushi was a huge bonus. Nothing like sisterhood - I agree.

  3. Oh, I'm so glad you were able to see your friend!!! The food looks delicious....a friend of mine told me once- and It cracked me up- He is older and diabetic and his partner is Asian and in love with cooking. They had a spat in the morning and he explained to me, "My boyfriend is mad because I didn't eat the breakfast he slaved over. The problem here is that I'm a diabetic and I have to presume that all food is poison. My boyfriend is Asian and food is a fetish for him. This is the problem." hahahaha! Really, the problem is that Asian food tastes so darn good!!!!! Yours looked delicious!

    1. Asian people do take their food fetishes personally, don't they? My mother kicked out my date who claimed he was allergic to seafood. She said to me, "Get rid of him!"

  4. FOOD cures everything. Fuck that chocolate mess. It's reallyreally good for us, I'm sure of it, because I'm 41. Please, okay? It's good for us. Okaythanks.

    As for your sister - holy WOW. I can't imagine. I'm so sorry. 13 years but still yesterday I bet. My sister's been gone for a month and I'm angry. She's my everything. My favorite person in the entire world (except Noah). I couldn't exist without her. That made you feel MUCH better, didn't it?

    I suck. Just for that I'm going to do something that's sure to screw up my body. Eat chocolate.

    1. If my doctor ordered me to stop eating chocolate, I'd have to call her a Nazi. Even though she's Indian. Hope your choco-binge was good and cherish every moment with you sister for me.

  5. A toast to all the girl friends in the world! And sisters too! Glad you have someone to talk to that memorable day.
    P.S. The chirashi is mouth watering!

    1. Thanks Ava, and yes - the Chirashi was SO good, I'm still dreaming about it.

  6. I'm glad you had a good friend and epic food to help you through your tough day.
    As for the chocolate cease and desist after forty, say it ain't so! What sorts of funky developments are we talking 'bout here? Hormonal malfunctions? Droopy brow? Third superfluous nipple?

    1. Well, if the third superfluous nipple grew a tit, I'd gladly eat chocolate ~ to heck with the doctor! But the truth is everything from migraine triggers to inexplicable white specks. Sad but true.
