Pretender



We went back to Alexander's because Robb wanted to get the steak dish I had last time, which was so very good. He ordered Steak Brazzos and I ordered Filet Mignon with Béarnaise Sauce. He said the Steak Brazzos was not as good as when I had it, and I could see that it did not look the same, neither did it have as much potato as when I had it. The Filet Mignon was marginally better when eaten with the Béarnaise Sauce, but not much.  The baked potato was fantastic!  For dessert, I had Key Lime Pie.  It's not likely we'll go back.

Speaking of stupid laws: an 1872 California law says a suspect is only guilty of rape if the victim is married and the attacker is pretending to be the spouse. A California appeals court has overturned the rape conviction of a man accused of sneaking into an 18-year-old woman’s bedroom and having sex with her while pretending to be her boyfriend. The decision turned on a crucial fact: she wasn’t married and the accused, Julio Morales, pretended to be her boyfriend.



  
  
  
Dumb Law of the Week: In Florida, it is illegal for an unmarried women to parachute on Sunday or she shall risk arrest, fine, and/or jail.

À la prochaine, mes amis.

Ils avaient édité un double coffret !
Ma copine et moi, nous nous étions partagé celui-là. Un disque pour elle, un disque pour moi. Trop *fauchées * pour s'offrir chacune le coffret entier. Souvenir de jeunesse.
