We’re spending our holiday in the States – first time for the boys – including Los Angeles and Orange County, Las Vegas, and Grand Canyon [cancelled] – the farthest (distance), longest (duration), and most complicated trip (itinerary) that we’ve ever taken.
For our final dinner, we were joined by Number One Fan LJY and her two girls.
I had suggested Benihana – not for the food, but for the shenanigans that go into their teppanyaki shows – but LJY recommended Roku – for the food and the shenanigans.
Alas, our chef wasn’t much for shenanigans. Aside from a few pyrotechnics, he didn’t do any tricks to amuse the kids, like flipping a shrimp into his own hat.
The food was fine.
Unfortunately, the side-by-side seating arrangement wasn’t amenable to conversation. I don’t recall LJY and W exchanging any words throughout the meal. The kids never spoke to each other.
Anyway, it’s always great to see LJY, no matter the circumstances.
Prior meetings between the kids:
(I recall a few more, but I couldn’t find the posts.)
