A Thing From Florence (Oregon)

Sith (the husband formerly known as Seth) and I went to this amazing little Italian restaurant. Everything on the menu looked really good. I decided, however, that none of the menu items was good enough for my highly refined sense of taste, so when the waitress took our order, I said, "I'll have the Chicken Something (a pasta dish), minus the chicken, but add peas and pine nuts."

REALLY, Dani?

The beautiful waitress looked at me with a look that said, "you are surprisingly ridiculous," but she said okay.

I spent the next 15 minutes longing to just start over. Longing to rewind for a moment and just say, "I'll have the Veal Marsala." The veal marsala would probably have been excellent.

AGONY. I was SO EMBARRASSED.

Sith was flabbergasted. He brought up the time we were playing Family Feud online with my little brothers, and the clue was "name something you put on a burrito," and Josh put his game face on and said "lettuce." and then the clue was, "name a song with a city name in the title," and Josh confidently said, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" and then couldn't figure out why I was cracking up.

Anyway. My pasta was good.

From now on you will be referred to as Dani the Epicure.

P.S. I just read your comment regarding Steve the matchelor. Small world! Your family is full of awesome people.

When did Seth change his name? I totally missed that memo.

That's kind of how I feel whenever I'm on a plane and I say, "Tomato juice no ice," when the drink cart comes by. But peas and pine nuts? I should try that in my juice next time.

Mmmm food snobs. Your pasta sounds better than their lame menu.
