A Night on the Town

The words I will use for tonight is....adventurous, slightly frustrating. Tonight's adventures will take us to a local restaurant called "The Owl". We went with a group intending on having a nice get together, and don't get me wrong the company was great. The thing was we decided to be a little cheap so we were only going to order a couple banana splits and then we decided to get a fruit punch smoothie while we waited. Wait we did indeed. Our drinks came out about a half hour to about an hour after ordered. We proceeded to wait, and wait, and aw yes wait a little bit more. Finally the waitress came out after everybody got there food and she had a couple of fruit punch smoothies with her, she was asking who ordered them. Both of us said "we ordered two banana splits". She walked away and came back a little after that with a hamburger and said who ordered the hamburger and we looked at each other as she looked at us and she said to us "did you order the hamburger". In disbelief I told her we had not and asked if they were making us the banana splits we had ordered almost an hour ago. She told us the guy was making it. We waited a bit longer and then a bartender comes out with two banana daquiries and asked who ordered them and looked at us and we said we ordered two banana splits. I finally decided to stand up and go talk to someone until they understood what I said. We finally got a banana split out of it. I'm thinking I'll just settle with eating banana splits in America. 
It was time to go home after a long late afternoon out. We had a lot of fun but wanted to hurry home so that Nick could complete his studying for the night. We were trying to figure out what we should do about the bus situation. We had two options, We could catch this first bus which would then take us to campus and then wait for another bus which would take us to our apartment or we could take the first bus and walk about 15 minutes in the dark to our apartment. We were looking for the fastest way possible. We decided to walk. It wasn't a bad walk but it was very interesting. As we were walking home in a rather dark area I saw this dark mass and it was pretty big just off to the side of the road. I was thinking about what it could be. My mind went from animal to animal. I was thinking it was a horse, but no, it couldn't be it wasn't tall enough. I then thought it could be a goat, but no, it couldn't be that either, too big. Finally I thought I wonder if it is a cow. I was thinking I have not seen a cow around here any where so why on earth would a cow be on the side of the road. We finally came upon it and sure enough it was indeed a cow, actually I take that back it was a bull with pretty big horns!!! Nick and I both looked at each other and simultaneaously quickened our steps while looking over our shoulders making sure the bull didn't run after us. We made it to our apartment unharmed and very amused.

Hi Folks Nick here, Kuulei and I had been previously traumatized by a horse in Hawaii.  We were on a walk then as well and the horse galloped up to the fence and fluttered its lips and neighed at us.  We decided to imitate the horse and fluttered our lips back at it.  I wonder if that means "I want to kill you" in horse language because it seemed to just get more angry at us.  Good thing we didn't stomp our feet and kick up dirt behind us with one leg to this bull tonight.  I swear we always have an adventure when we go out.

Wow! That sure sounds so fabulous. When you get back we will take you out for a real banana split.

Kuulei and Nick said...

YAY!!!! I can't wait. You rock!

Whoa, a bull? That is quite the adventure. And your banana split story reminded me of a funny story I'll have to write on my blog. :)

Nick has the WORST luck at restaurants!!! I would have taken the daiquiri and let it take care of my problems. Glad you didn't get to joy of being a matador.

Kuulei and Nick said...

Yeah I'll be looking on your blog for the story. And we couldn't take the Daiquiri because it was alcoholic. haha

I was sad to hear about your sad banana split story - I could tell how frustrated you were....I am the same way! Thanks for the advice about not going to Owls :)

When they brought you your banana splits you should have said "where's my hamburger!?"
