Rainbows and Sushi

The weather was deceiving, cloudy yet warm, scented with a chill of possible rain or snow. I had no idea what to wear for my outing with my friend Amy. Too cold for a skirt, to warm for a heavy coat I stood in front of my dresser pondering, looking at items with dissatisfaction. An outfit I had imagined many days ago finally came to me and I was out the door in fuchsia and cords.

For some reason I was impatient that day. Perhaps it was the many minuets waiting and anticipating for the day to arrive in the first place. My patience caught up with me and I was unable to sit still any longer. I browsed around the mall where we were to meet and found a dollar store, bought a color book, and splashed colors with the help of princesses while I taught myself patience once again. I learned there was a reason why  children color so much, it is quite calming and fun. The pictures already drawn, all you have to is cover up the black and white. It's something that I do now a lot when feeling restless and Amy and I pressed colors while we ate.

The meal was a rainbow of flavors, which is fitting since I ordered the "rainbow." Salmon, shrimp, and tuna fought for attention on my pallet. Little did they know they melded together in a colorful whim of savoring deliciousness. I also got a usual favorite, yam tempura sushi. The name of Amy's order is unknown to me now but I tried it and it was tasty.

We craved sweets after our fishy meal but found our eyes were feasting more than our tongues and dear Amy was as sweet as ever in her outfit, yellow, floral, and furry fun.
