Today's theme is "outlier". One of the definitions of outlier is:
"someone who stands apart from others of his or her group, as by differing actions, beliefs, religious practices, etc... Synonyms: outsider, nonconformist, maverick; original, eccentric, bohemian; dissident, dissenter, iconoclast, heretic."
We have a friend who fits this description to a tee. Tee for Terry. Terry runs a restaurant called Hino's. A Japanese restaurant...because Terry Hino is Japanese.
Terry's run his restaurant for close to 30 years. We discovered him about 10 years ago and have visited him about once a month ever since.
We always are offered a place of pride; sitting at the bar overlooking the kitchen. That way we can chat with Terry while he makes our dinner.
Funny guy. He hates being busy. He'll swear to himself when customers walk in because he knows it means more work. He'll swear in French for my wife's benefit.
Yet he's fast. So fast it's hard to take a picture of him.
But the food is delicious.
His eccentricities are charming.
And his friendship is valued.
