Tonight I had the pleasure to go out for my friend Chrysti’s 22nd birthday. So around 7PM, I went to wait at the bus stop underneath I-5, scribbling in a journal with a green pen, thinking about how cold it was outside. Once on the bus, squinted eyes to find the place, looking for the WaMu to know when to pull the cord. A text messsage from Irene with further directions came to my aid and I got off the bus, back in the cold. I found the sushi place next to Charlie’s, one I had loitered in front of, months before, during Irene’s 21 run.

Inside was busy and warm. It was nice to find my seat at the table and see everyone there drinks already ordered. After sitting down and settling in, I ordered what turned out to be a lot of food; everyone was splitting an entry and a bunch of sushi whereas I unknowingly ordered just as much for myself alone, haha.

The atmosphere of the place was very diner’esque, nothing fancy, but it was busy and warm inside, steaming the windows slightly. Real inviting given the chill weather outside. So yeah, it was good times with lots of laughs. Particularly fun watching lil’ Val drink sake and Chrysti’s excitement at her sushi selections. Afterward, I bundled back up and we went to the magazine place on Broadway before I caught the bus back to U-District. It was a nice night.
