The boys at work and I went out for Sushi for lunch. Now… I had a bad experience the last time the boys when for sushi. Being a White guy I ordered chicken at the sushi place and got a McNugget sized lunch… so I was highly skeptical (and ready to grab a burger) at the first sign of McNuggets today… We tried a different Sushi place and I went with tempura shrimp. And wow… finally…. a winner… it was very good! I was shocked and pleased to find something I enjoyed off the menu that was the White guy chicken cop out… Huzzah!
