The sun finally chose to kick the dark clouds away and rule the skies for the whole day. So I celebrated the warmth by wearing
- my short frilly maroon dress that I thrifted back home,
- semi-sheer maroon tights,
- tall fitted black boots,
- black straw hat,
- and brown sunnies.
Shhh… you know, the maroon dress wasn’t really that short when I bought it. It was above my knees and very loose. It also had these holes in the front that I planned to fix. But I when I got here, not having any idea what heat can do to wool when in the dryer, it shrunk! The great thing about the shrinkage is that the holes shrunk as well. In fact, they disappeared. (Magic!)
It’s the shortest dress I ever wore in my whole life but I felt secure because of the tights. (Plus I wore B.’s black boxers on top of my tights — heehee!) When I wore it last Saturday, B. liked it and I even got a compliment when we went shopping.
Short as it was, this dress was perfect for our plan to pig out at Shish Kebab, the Persian buffet near our place. If you like delicious Persian or spicy food, you’d love Shish Kebab. I know I do. And just to show you how sweet my man is: he can’t stand spicy food but will eat there with me because he knows I love it. Poor guy, he sweats and turns red in the face while eating but smiles bravely when I ask him if he’s having fun.
A lot of people get digestive problems after eating hot or spicy food, but not me! I’m fine. No problems alimentary or digestive problems AT ALL. I think my tongue, stomach, and other digestive parts were really made for hot and spicy food.
My love for spicy and hot food is also very evident at home. If you open our fridge, this is the first thing you’ll see:
When we bought this huge bottle of Jalapenos at Sam’s, B. asked: are you sure you’ll be able to finish that before it expires?
I finished it in less than a month.
