Don’t know what to get the girl who has everything? Try birthday squid.
That’s what the principal of the junior high in Chibu brought to our door last night. He was out squid fishing and remembered it was my birthday the next day, so he packed up his gear, drove to our house, and delivered two beautiful, slimy cephalopods in a plastic bag.
On the night before my birthday, I was in the kitchen gutting and cutting up squid so we could make calamari as part of my birthday dinner the next night.
I was so happy that my principal remembered my birthday and equally happy to be able to eat fresh fried calamari. I even like gutting squid…it’s surprisingly relaxing…
Birthday squid started my 24th year off right 🙂
