I still feel some tightness in my chest, but I am WAY better than last week. So seemed like a good idea to take little dude rollerblading today.
It's been a while and I forgot just how hard the ground can be. ;)
After laughing ourselves silly and falling all over the park, we decided enough was enough and headed over to the local chinese food shop for lunch.
These guys have a jones for tempura. They salt and pepper tempura EVERYTHING. Frog legs, tofu, greenbeans, they are even willing to tempura the potstickers.
Since the seasoning is cracked salt, stone ground chilis, crushed red pepper, fried garlic and green onion, we always order two pots of tea. SO GOOD. Little dude can eat a whole order of the dumplings by himself. The waiters think it is the funniest thing ever to watch him eating with chopsticks and drinking green tea.
I am doing ok with my efforts to learn Russian but it is slow going. While I can pronounce the sounds of the alphabet, I am having trouble recognizing the letters. It would be easier if I had a tasty Slav nearby to practice my....language skills on. Motivation and all that, right? ;)
I am off to waste the rest of my weekend. Hope you all get to doing something silly, useless and fun as hell.
