Blow Out the Candles. You’re another year older! How did you celebrate the passage of another year?
We had just gotten back from a weekend trip with friends. I was headed out on a retreat with student in a couple of days. So we went small for my b-day. We went to Millennium in the city for some classy vegan food. We sat at a small table in a crowded and warm restaurant and got a little squiffy. They brought us an extra appetizer on the house because we’d had to wait for the table. Battered and deep-fried trumpet mushrooms. Oh. My. God. One of the best things I’d ever put in my mouth. We were so full, even before the main course came. We might have not even had desert. We rolled out of there, super happy.
