I had it all mapped out.
Go to work –> Write scripts –> Office lunch treat –> Get a massage –> Buy a bottle or two of Vodka Mudshake or T-Ice –> Go home –> Drink Vodka Mudshake or T-Ice –> Go to sleep
But just when I thought I was going to spend my birthday alone (for the first time ever), my college roomie/soulsistah pulled through. She cancelled her date so we could celebrate my birthday together.
<Yey for awesome college roomies!>
I told her I would meet her at Banapple‘s Connecticut branch at six o’clock but with all the birthday excitement going on, I had a tough time getting in the writing zone. It took me a while to finish the day’s scripts so I was a bit late. Soulsistah, meanwhile, almost got lost en route to Banapple. Good thing Banapple has such a distinct logo that the cab driver had no trouble spotting it.
<Disaster averted! Whew!>
Soulsistah was already there when I arrived so after exchanging pleasantries, we went right down to business. I was still pretty full so I decided to order a salad (no, I’m not on a diet). I was torn between the Asian Sunshine Salad and the Super Caesar Salad but I eventually settled on the latter. It was pretty good. I especially enjoyed the pecan praline bits. Soulsistah, on the other hand, had Breaded Fillet of Cream Dory with Honey Thyme Mustard Sauce. I forgot to ask her for a critique because we were too busy exchanging stories (mostly about my little one’s antics and Soulsistah’s recent Sydney trip). For dessert, we had Banana Starry-berry Custard Cheesecake. We were worried at first that it might be too sweet. But to our delight, it was, as Goldilocks would put it, just right. 🙂

It was a very simple celebration but I had a fabulous time nonetheless. Thank you, dear Soulsistah!
