d'awwww - thank you! ^____^ Birthday was lots of fun.I dragged my parents out to an Asian restaurant for a cook-at-the-table spree.
I'd been guessing that Dad would freak out and Mom would be 'oooh shiny,' because Dad's the doesn't-like-new-things one, but Dad was all over it (possibly because there was all the meat he could ever want) and Mom was the hesitating one ("...is that a tentacle?" "Yes mom, the seafood version has squid in it. And octopus." "And you're supposed to put that in your MOUTH?" "...Here mom, why don't you try some of Dad's beef bulgogi." XDD)
By the end of it, though, even Mom was willing to give it a try again some other time as long as we didn't order the seafood version. ^_~
