An absolute first!

Saturday began as any Saturday morning usually begins for us...breakfast at the Grill! This particular Saturday some of our friends from Joy Christian Fellowship came. Alison came with some of the kids and her husband was coming with the others and they were meeting Alison's parents. Alison came over to talk with us a bit and received a phone call from her husband who was at another restaurant in Indian Trail. Crossed Wires! We all got a good laugh out of that!

We came home , took care of Charlotte and then headed out for Chinese to celebrate Emma's birthday.
We arrived first, had them move tables to accomodate the 8 of us and Mike and I got our drinks. My phone rang and it was Anna. She asked where we were and I told her we were at the restaurant and had everything ready. Silence and then "oh, no...we're at Kami" Wesley Chapel and we were at Taipei South on Johnston Road! [Kami is three minutes from our house and T.S is almost 30] You say Chinese to Mike and I and we automatically think Taipei South-our absolute favorite and I happen to know that Anna and Dan love it too but Emma likes Kami...why...because they have red walls!

Needless to say I was embarrassed and we felt awful but the people at Taipei South were so gracious.
They wouldn't even let us pay for our drinks! They even said to tell Emma "Happy Birthday".
Back on the road again! I then called Dan's cell to say we were on our way but didn't have my glasses on. I ended up calling our friend Don! Yikes! Another embarrassment! I tried awfully hard in a matter of seconds to act like I meant to call him but just couldn't think that fast! Had to confess the whole story!

Well...we did make it to Kami and the food was very good! Went to TCBY for frozen yogurt and then home for an hour before we hit the road once more, this time to the hospital to see Mike's mother.

A lesson I learned...when speaking of eating Chinese...specify the name of the restaurant unless you happen to know the other party likes red walls! (And it's their birthday! :)
