Feeling a Little Queasy

We walked across the 17th street bridge today to go to that new FOX Grill that just opened.

Big space, kind of slow service. But that’s not my point. The point is, I ordered the calamari. This was not your chewy, rubber band kind of calamari, but sort of a breading-falls-off, slimy calamari.

About half of it was the part with suckers. I don’t like the part with suckers. The sucker parts were kind of purple, making it look not so much cooked as bruised. No, sir, can’t eat squid suckers that look like victims of domestic violence.

All this would not have been so bad if I hadn’t topped it off with a huge slab of carrot cake and two generous dollops of ice cream. So now the cake, ice cream and squid is not sitting well. Especially after the walk back across the bridge.
