Dear Aunt Re:

I’m 48, newly single, and I have a date this weekend with a man I really like, but he wants to take me out for sushi and I’ve never had I before.  What should I order that isn’t gross?  Help me.

Dear Cooked:

I’m going to try to keep it simple and nothing is more simple than a list, except maybe a full color pie chart. But you’re getting a list.  Bummer.

Three Sushi Tips for a Sushi Newbie Going on a Sushi Date:

  1. The hot sake may seem trendy but it’s not. Order the house cold sake, its way more hip.  If you’re lucky they’ll serve it in a martini glass with a few cucumber slices.
  2. Don’t eat the gob of what looks like light green Play-Doh.  It’s not.  It’s called wasabi and although it looks benign, it’s a harsh ball of hot horseradish.  If you were out with me, I would try to talk you into eating the whole thing at once, and then I’d laugh at you.  For like a week.
  3. Don’t ask people how to look cool in a sushi bar on a date.  Everyone in the world knows that your date would much rather teach you about sushi himself.  In fact, I bet he hopes you’ve never tried sushi before so he can tell you what to do.  That’s how men are.  Duh.
