the american ninja.

This past Sunday, Chad and my parents and I drove to Chattanooga to visit with my grandmother and her new boyfriend. And if you remember my previous post about them - yes, he totally has a shirt pocket full of pens. My mom can find a Japanese steakhouse within any 50 mile radius, so I got to stuff my face full of hibachi. Yum.

Anyway, we had the most hilarious cook-in-front-of-you hibachi chef. His name was JR (Japanese Redneck). He had a southern accent and told INS jokes the whole time he was cooking. He let Chad try the spin-the-egg-on-the-spatula trick and Chad totally rocked it. That's when he called Chad an American ninja. I loved his new nickname so much that I made him get behind the grill and do a karate pose.

I love catching the elders off guard. So cute.

What's with back lit photos in Asian restaurants? They're the perfect opportunity to pretend a giant bird is flying toward you.

Gamama's name is Jane. This is her boyfriend, Richard. We like to call them Dick and Jane. How cute is that!  And he's goofy to top it off. Love it.

Happy 24-hours-before-my-four-day-weekend Day!!
