Birthday dinner: If you knew sushi like I know sushi ...

Oh ... oh ... oh ... what a night.

Yeah, so it was birthday dinner time. The Roo-girl (Miss 7/11) was cheer-camping on her actual natal day, so we put off the festivities until we could all be present.

Unfortunately for Miss I-Don't-Want-to-Share-My-Birthday, the night we selected happened to be ... Rocky's birthday as well. The exact date, in fact.

So we couldn't exactly have a Roo birthday dinner without acknowledging the Drama King's significant boy toy, could we?

Right.

This put everyone in a right festive mood (not) as we danced around her royal Roo requests.

She wanted SUSHI.

Just for the record, that's not always so easy to do on a Sunday night. Many sushi restaurants in the area are closed, and those that are open? Don't open till 5:30 ... a little late to make a reservation for nine people at 7 p.m.!

But never fear! Your intrepid Evil Mother was up to the task, and we found ourselves at a lovely intimate table for crazy.

Z-man: *pushing the logo from his t-shirt in Drama King's face* Do you recognize this?

Drama King: No.

Z-man: You don't? You seriously don't?

Drama King: No.

Z-man: What kind of gay man ARE you???

Drama King: A classier one?

Drummer Man: Hedwig? What's Hedwig? Isn't that from Harry Potter?

Drama King: Bwahahahahahahahahaa ...

Evil Mom: No, that's Hogwarts.

Drama King: Bwahahahaahahahaha ...

Drummer Man: No, isn't it Harry Potter?

Z-man: Yeah, I guess.

Evil Mom: *completely being a moron* Yeah, isn't that the character played by Robbie Coltrane?

Drama King: Bwahahahahahahahaa ...

Z-man: No, Mom, that's HAGRID. Hedwig is the owl.

Evil Mom: Oh. Yeah.

Drama King: Bwahahahahahahahaha ...

My hands were sticky. It's tough work eating sushi and edamame and staying clean, ya know?

So I absentmindedly reached for my water glass and rubbed my hand up and down on the outside of it to dampen my fingers.

Drama King: Mom. Please. Never do that again.

Evil Mom: Huh? What? ... Oh.

Wonderhubby: Hmm. Depends on where she does it.

Evil Mom: *slugs him soundly on the shoulder*

Wild craziness! And so much fun. (Hedwig is Harry's owl, Hogwarts is the school, Hagrid the half-giant gamekeeper who befriends Harry).

If you only had one more ... you could do a slightly bent version of 'Eight Is Enough' - or just call it 'Seven is just About Enough of That'.

Burgh Baby said...

Y'all manage to have more fun than should be legally allowed. LOVE IT!

I will never stroke another cup, glass or bottle to moisten my hands in the same way again!

I thought I was being so cleaver...

You guys look like such a happy bunch! But, I have to say that you are obviously nothing but laugh fodder for Drama King.
I'm glad the whole b-day bash was such a fun time, in the long run!

Karen said...

You probably got the table reservation because your family's reputation preceeds you.
