NO, this is not THAT kind of blog post! ;o)
Recently at team lunch, I was waxing rhapsodic about a new dining destination that PK and I tried the previous Friday night---Parisa’s.* It’s a delightful Persian restaurant with a lovely atmosphere, terrific décor, fantastic food, and an attentive wait staff. I enjoyed the experience so much that I raved about it to my work team members.
So…the graphic designer from my team, DesignDarlin’, and her husband, DesignDude, tried it out the next night after I had told her about Parisa’s…a Friday night.
Here’s the report from DesignDarlin’:
DesignDarlin’: You know that place you told me about….Parisa’s?
DD: Well, DesignDude and I tried it out.
E: (giddy response) Oh, goodie! How did you like it?
DD: We loved the food. But… (pauses and laughs a little nervously)
E: (anticipating DD’s next statement) Oh, no! I forgot to tell you about the…
DD: Belly dancing. Yeah. (DD grins and chuckles.) I kinda felt bad for DesignDude. He was so embarrassed---his entire face and neck were beet red. He didn’t know what to do! He asked me, “Do I look at her?” I told him it was OK…she’s just dancing.
E: What about you?
DD: I was fine. To me, it’s just another art form.
We both laughed a bit more…about how surprised they were, about DesignDude’s utter discombobulation, and about which set of DesignDuo's parents would freak out as much as DDude did (or more).
