The long walk back to the restaurant.
Kris was very upset about the long walk.
Yesterday was Brooke's farewell lunch so some work friends and I went to sushi to celebrate her new job. While we're all sad to see her go, we're happy for her and thrilled that her new office is two buildings away from ours! Brooke chose R23 in downtown LA and it was glorious! It's a sushi restaurant/art gallery/former Santa Fe Railroad building. The food was amazing (I basically ate my weight in sashimi) and the ambiance was very cool. Our friend Tol drove us there and we valeted the car on the way in. After lunch, we decided to really have a field day and go for Yogurtland before heading back to work. We picked up the car from Valet and drove to Yogurtland, got out of the car and started walking the block and a half to frozen yogurt heaven, only to realize that we had lost Tol. We waited and waited and couldn't figure out where he had gone. Finally we walked back toward his car and he was standing there giving us a thumbs down sign and telling us that the valet guy didn't give him his smart key back and now his car wouldn't lock and it also wouldn't start again without the key! We had to walk back to the restaurant (which felt like a mile each way) and then back to the car. By this time we were all ready to call it a day and just drove back to work. At least we had a good laugh and walked off our lunch. Never a dull moment with Tol around. This is a lesson on how technology and gluttony can really screw you at times. We'll miss you Brooke!
