I love sushi, but I wanted to try something new - like my brilliant idea of La Cave. Clearly the better choice.
I told him that I wasn't doing my hair and putting on good makeup (a rarity, I assure you) for our standard sushi place on rue Dauphine. I wanted a bottle of wine, some ambiance, a dessert that did not include red beans or sticky rice.
Then, in an effort to convince me that sushi was the better option, Copain said, "but I can use chapstick now!".
Copain: yeah, now that my thumb is almost healed, I can use chapstick.
FCC: (drawing a blank - probably from a dry shampoo fume overdose in the miniature bathroom...) After five seconds of confusion, the air cleared, I came to my senses and put two and two together -
You mean CHOPsticks?
