I took Rick out to dinner to celebrate his 40th.
So we went to this place, Tarry Lodge (a Mario Batali restaurant), that has excellent food. But the very best part of the meal was when this woman walked in who will absolutely be on The Real Housewives of Westchester (you know, once they start casting). Every part of her was fake… her hair color, her face, her lips, her boobs, her elbows, everything.
Ok I don’t know about the elbows.
The point is – I could not stop staring at this woman.
At first, Rick couldn’t see her from where he was sitting so he actually threw his napkin on the floor so he could get up, pivot slightly, pirouette and finally take a quick peak at this chick.
And of course, one of the servers rushed over immediately with a clean replacement napkin since Rick had “accidentally dropped it.” It’s a fancy joint like that. A lot of napkins must get dropped when this gal is in the house.
And then, it got better because she and her boyfriend started arguing which of course, is always entertaining and did confirm that she could still manage facial expressions.
And then it got even more awesome because they were seated right behind us.
So I pulled out my camera and told Rick to pretend to take a picture of me but actually take a picture of her. And then I realized that my camera battery was sitting in the charger at home.
So my husband took a picture with his iPhone (no flash, no close-ups but you get the idea).
In case there is any confusion, I’m the girl on the right. And she’s the very blond gal behind me.
I love that girl! And my fish was pretty great too.
By the way, Rick was so unphased by turning 40 that I had to stress about it for him, which I totally don’t appreciate because I have enough on my to-do list. He’ll be sorry when I go out and buy a convertible or something to help me cope with my faux-I’m-40-crisis.
