Today, Shutterfly decided to email me and remind me to look at my pictures from this week 11 years ago.
Wow! What a blast from the past!
Graduation photos from Stanford.
I decided to scroll through all the photos I uploaded to Shutterfly and I came across some fun ones.
The first time I tried raw oysters.
I remember this trip. I rented a luxury house in Tahoe during the winter and invited my sister and my friends and this guy I just started dating to join me.
The house had a hot tub on the outdoor deck AND a fireplace in the master bedroom and master bathroom!
I drove back to the Bay Area with the guy I just started dating. We’ll call him “Tom.”
Tom stopped at his favorite restaurant in Truckee for oysters on the half shell – something I’d never had before.
Here you can see me eyeballing the oysters, working up the guts to eat one (let’s face it, they look kinda slimy and yucky):
It’s funny, many of the men I’ve dated have taught me something new.
Tom taught me to like oysters.
Ironically, Tom was a Burner.
A long time burner.
Too bad I waited 10 more years to discover Burning Man on my own!
