My friend Regan Bullers, onetime captain of the Hofstra women's volleyball team, current Minnesota high school teacher, is in town this week. Last Saturday we gathered in Queens and Regan met Julie Ricotta, newest daughter of John and Kelly. We played the DVD version of Family Feud and the movie trivia game Scene It, but the most spontaneous fun was had practicing writing in script on Magna-Doodles.
Yesterday we met for lunch at the Houston's on East 53rd. Keeping Lenten observances, I chose the Fresh Fish sandwich with couscous on the side over the House Made Veggie Burger. Regan and John had French Dip sandwiches, and Deshant (a.k.a. Obsidian Xerxes) had a tuna salad. Our server was also named Regan, but she pronounced the first syllable as in "regular."
Now you know what English majors do for fun.
