surprise


for the first time 
in 
well
as far back 
as
 i can remember
and 
on some days
 that's just moments ago
it didnt rain 
memorial day monday
sweet

i met my sister for lunch
we'd been trying to do this for months
first i got sick
then it was mother's day 
we decided that was not a good day to go out to lunch
then she got sick
then we both had conflicts

finally
we met at red farm
i chose red farm because its chinese food
with a definite neuvo twist
our mom loved chinese food
we looked over the menu 
there really wasn't 
anything she'd have wanted to eat
anything she would have recognized
she liked old school chinese food
but 
i was sure 
she'd have made the waiter explain each dish 
in detail

my sister 
had 
some amazing sashimi tuna in a 'salad'


i had an assortment of dim sum
this one in particular was amusing and delicious
crab stuff with duck and a veggie 'soup'
