The periodontist cleared me to go back to my normal diet, so I went to lunch at Don Filippo's in Carle Place with my brother Henry and his friends from work, James and Albert. To begin, I tore a garlic knot into several bite-sized morsels. I ducked the bruschetta appetizer and ordered linguini with red clam sauce.
One of the staff at Don Filippo's recognized Henry as a cantor at our church. Cool.
After lunch, we went back to the house and headed down to Henry's media room, or as James calls it, The Batcave, and Albert showed off his Nintendo Wii, James showed off his Dell laptop (as powerful as my desktop), and Henry showed of his PlayStation 3. Great to have a chance to try systems I can't afford.
