Creatures of Habit

Fred and I are creatures of habit. We like to eat at the same restaurants over and over and we order the exact same thing. This is mostly my fault because I am such a picky eater.

Well, Saturday night, we decided that we would try our "old" sushi restaurant. We haven't been there in about a year. This was because we discovered our "new" sushi restaurant and the food is much better plus they mail out coupons. The only reason we went to our "new" one was because of the coupons. And it was love at first bite!

Our "old" sushi restaurant was quite disappointing. We ordered our "old" regular and it just wasn't the same. The rolls seemed smaller and they didn't have much flavor. Plus, they didn't have shrimp fried rice. (an absolute must with your sushi) We were sad and even talked about leaving the "old" one and going to the "new" one, but we just went home and pigged out on brownies.

We decided last night for dinner that we were going to go to our "new" sushi place since we'd been craving it after the disaster. It was worth the wait and it was delicious and about $15 cheaper (I had a coupon). We also knew that we could get in and out in time to watch "Big Brother" at a reasonable time.

Has anyone else done this or are we the only weirdos?

I've never had suchi because I don't like fish and I hate the word "raw"... but lately I've been wanting to try it. I just may...

So you story reminds me of this post I wrote months ago. Imagine if your old place was fabulous and cheap and then all of a sudden it was taken away and you were left with a new crappy place. Terrible.
