As promised by Fasha himself, the limo promptly arrived at 5:30pm, ready to take us to The Poseidon in Del Mar for Father's Day dinner. But not before Fasha emailed us one last time to remind us to "dress to the max" as he'll be wearing his tuxedo and also to not forget our list of "10 Reasons Why We Think He's So Wonderful."
So anyway, upon entering the limo we were greeted with a multi-colored "CONGRATULATIONS" banner complete with bright red balloons. I'm not quite sure what we were congratulating, but I'm wondering if Fasha also had that arranged.
It really wouldn't surprise me if he did.
The restaurant was right on the water with a great view of the beach.
But probably not as great of view as it was for the other patrons who were in flip flops and shorts watching a herd of dressed up Asians (and one tall black dude) come waltzing in to the center table on the patio for all to see.
Yeah, we were those people. So what.
Then came time to read Fasha our lists.
Me, being the ever so prepared one, had them all written out on a Father's Day card.
My brother, on the other hand, completely forgot about our homework assignment (though, I don't know how after 800 email reminders). So he busted out 10 reasons on the fly.
I thought I would cry at this moment of the day being as emotional as I am.
However, when Fasha had to translate every.single.sentence to Princess Sophia in Korean,
it sort of broke the mood a bit for me.
That and also when Princess took a personal phone call at reason #8.
After dinner, Fasha asked the limo driver to take us to Baskin Robbins for some ice cream.
It was quite the scene trying to watch him maneuver this long ass car through the parking lot, just barely avoiding side-swiping a parked car.
Once we got our ice cream, we all hunkered back into the limo for our drive home.
It was quiet and getting late; we were all tired from the day's activities.
I looked over at Fasha and he seemed lost in thought, when out of nowhere, he says to me,
"Hey Shella. What if I practiced Michael Jackson's 'Beat It' for karaoke. Wouldn't that be cool??"
Yeah, Dad. It would be cool. You cool son of a gun, you.
Happy Fasha's Day!
