During the week, I got a text from Stephanie Drew’s cousin, she wanted to go get dinner together. I wrote back, “Couples thing? or girl’s night.” She said, girls night! I said, “Awesome! yes!” She wanted to go for sushi, so I suggested that we go to Slippery Mermaid in Sewickley. I love it there. Drew and I love it there.
Today, I took a vacation day. I needed a mental health day before things pick up at work with the start of the semester. There was going to be a lot going on next week around campus. I just wanted to relax and catch my breath and sleep in.
At lunch, I met my mom and dad at Rocky’s in the Rocks. We love that hole in the wall restaurant. I brought my book that I have to read for school by September 10th. I am waiting for the Courseweb shell to open up, then I have to plan out my assignments, but for now, this is what I have to do.
Lunch was yummy, I had a grilled cheese. It didn’t sit well on my stomach in the afternoon. I was kind of bummed about that, but at the restaurant, I ran into Mike Dugan. I went to kindergarten with Mike’s younger brother. Mike is also friends with my friend Leanne’s husband, Dan. It is a small world.
After lunch, I went home and watched the Man in the Iron Mask. I had never seen it before and I do love some Leonardo DiCaprio. When it was time to meet Stephanie, I got ready to leave and made my way to The Slippery Mermaid.
Thankfully, there wasn’t too much traffic, except for the Sewickley bridge. There is always traffic on the Sewickley Bridge.
When I walked into the restaurant, I was seated right away. It was still early like 5pm. I slipped some Pinot Grigio and waited for Stephanie to arrive.
I saw her walk past the window and into the restaurant. When she came over to the table, I stood up and hugged her. I hadn’t seen her since Kelly’s wedding.
At dinner, we split the shrimp roll, but I had a sexy mermaid roll, and she had the California roll, and the Philly roll. We ended up splitting another roll, and I had the California roll. She also ordered the sexy mermaid roll for herself. I can’t believe we ate that much sushi. It is expensive, but you have to eat a little more of it for it to fill you up.
We swore to do this again soon now that they live a little closer now. I do miss her and miss having girlfriends. I brought Drew home a roll and was able to see him when I got home.
