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."


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.


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.
