A Sunday Without Brian

I didn’t want to mope around the house after dropping Brian off at the airport so I ended up driving to Jersey’s to watch some friends play sand volleyball. The tournament was a fundraiser for the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office Leaders Achievers and Winners (LAW) Camp.

It looked like so much fun that I’m now trying to convince my coworkers to host a sand volleyball team building event. I mean, who doesn’t like playing volleyball?

Anyway, I worked up an appetite watching Rachel, Michael, and Stephanie play so I found myself at mom and dad’s in Derby looking for food. They didn’t have anything so mom took Jenni and me to Hibachi Boy in Derby.

Hibachi Boy on Urbanspoon

Hibachi Boy serves food that you would typically find at fancier Benihana-type restaurants minus the performance and the high prices. If you need something to compare it to, it’s a lot like Emperor’s. Except I think that Hibachi Boy actually offers a better value because you get fried rice, noodles, hibachi veggies, and bean sprouts along with your choice of meat. As far as menus go, I also think that Hibachi Boy offers a much greater selection because they also serve Thai, Vietnamese, and sushi. I’m pretty sure that if it’s Asian, Hibachi Boy serves it. LOL.

Places like Emperor’s and Hibachi Boy are a great alternative to Sumo or Sake (two of the most popular Benihana-type restaurants in Wichita) if you could care less about the performance and you don’t have that much time anyway. It’s a fast hibachi meal at a lower price. Once Brian gets over his “I don’t want to eat out anymore” phase, I’ll probably bring him to Hibachi Boy.

I ended up hanging out at mom and dad’s after lunch. I figured it was better than hanging out alone at home. Jenni rented The Bling Ring so I ended up watching it with her. Did my homework and ended up staying for dinner. Mom made bok choy. We ended up visiting for a while and, before I knew it, it was almost eight o’clock.

After twelve hours away from my own house it felt so good to home. It also helped that Brian and I thoroughly cleaned the house the day before so the house smelled fresh and clean when I returned. Sometimes time away from something makes you appreciate it even more. The same holds true for people. I was so happy to see Brian when I picked him up from the airport this afternoon. Welcome home, baby!
