Me and The Genie

One of “my kids” is in town, so we met up for dinner and drinks. Started with sushi at Akiko’s on Bush Street. I let her order for me. You all know I like that. Loved the place. Would totally go back. Maybe in two weeks. ;-)

Then we moved next door to the Irish pub, where I ordered Bailey’s and Irish Mist and both were substituted for something not Bailey’s and not Irish Mist. Our second drink also had items that were both substituted. Made me question the authenticity of the Irishness.

We caught up on gossip from the Yellow Nunnery. Talked about how things have changed or not changed over the years. And I apologized (not so profusely) for standing her up for lunch in Boston one time. I had underestimated the time it would take to get to Cambridge on the T. I swear it used to be faster. This time I was sure to know exactly when I would arrive and was even early. For anyone who knows me from The Yellow Nunnery, early was never my forte. There is a reason I was given a watch both times I left.

For what it is worth, the people taking this photo were quite amused that I was out drinking with my student. I think one of them tried to tell me that she is hot. I wondered for a moment where I had gone wrong and why they thought I was a lesbian.

Anyhow, it was great catching up. I miss my kids sometimes.

    Yay! I’m so glad I made the blog and also that we drank completely inauthentic Irish drinks in San Fran. We miss you too!
