Hot off the press … Just arrived home and thought I’d tell you about dinner while it’s fresh in my mind. My hubbie who spends his week travelling and eating out, comes home for a – well, home cooked meal – and I’m just dying to get out of the house. So tonight we ventured to our newest local – Egg Bistro in East Brisbane. Very European, Melbourne decor, I like…
Just so you know, Egg Bistro is BYO. I was a little disappointed as I do like to try out new wine by the glass when I’m out. There is a bottlo over the road, but it’s pretty limited. Not to worry, I survived…
Now, can you see, well how could you not, hubby’s T-shirt? We bought ( I made him buy) it the other weekend in Bangalow, where I want to move and own a groovy shop. I loved the stripey, kind of tie dye look. At the time, the teenager said, ‘cool, cool, very indie…’ However, tonight he wasn’t so sure, and I have to admit I was a little startled myself when I saw the hubby dressed for dinner. A little dizzy, no doubt due to being faint from hunger, or the onset of a migraine. Stripes can do that to me. His ‘look’ was also a little familiar. I’m thinking escaped prisoner, ‘Oh Brother Where out thou’ . (Have you seen the movie? If not, you must.) How could I have been so wrong, the T looked so right last week? Anyway, my beloved didn’t seem to notice that I looked anywhere but at him the entire night – just in case I threw up (stripes can do that to me).
Anyway, the food… Our meals were delicious. I chose well – duck on lentils, red cabbage and cauliflower – and something I would never cook myself. Unfortunately I forgot to take out my camera so I can’t show you any photos. I did consider asking the diners at the neighbouring table if I could photograph their meals instead, but my companions persuaded/manhandled me not to.
Teenagers… Here’s the kid who was dining out at 2 weeks old, attending cocktail parties at 6 months, asking for billy goat’s cheese at 3 years, making a mean salad dressing at 5, and at almost 15, slurps his drink like a neanderthal – no hands – in public. I rest my case.
I think this could be the last time this man is seen wearing this T-shirt.
PS I did take a few days to actually get this post up – so it’s not technically hot off the press anymore.
PSS Have you got a headache?
