Um. International Sushi Day is a real thing. It’s an Umami Girl’s dream come true. I almost can’t even. But I DEFINITELY will. 🙂
You may know Sunday June 18 as Father’s Day. And you may, as I did as recently as last week, think that Father’s Day is borderline perfect the way it is. Celebrating great dads. Spending time outdoors. Maybe grilling. Or busting myths with pink drinks and a matinee musical, who cares. Point being, I didn’t know I needed more from Father’s Day.
But sometimes life brings you moments of clarity like that. Case in point: this year, June 18 is also International Sushi Day. INTERNATIONAL SUSHI DAY, people. This is real. No offense, dads, but I now see very clearly that something’s been missing from your big day for years.
That thing, of course, is a sushi party.
It’s no secret to anyone who’s met me that I’ll take virtually any excuse to indulge in some good sushi. Reasons such as “Wednesday” typically suffice. So a whole international day of sushi celebration is almost enough to leave me verklempt. I’ll power through, though, and I suggest you do, too. 🙂 (more…)
