Wordy Wednesday

Location: Private room in up-market Casino

Football Fanatic: 'Can I have some of that chicken please?'
Waiter: 'It's lamb, madam.'
Football Fanatic: 'Really? I didn't know you could get lamb drumsticks.'

I know.

In her defence, I can only assume that she was offered breast of lamb cut into ribs, something which she has never seen, it being a cut of meat that my mother, food snob that she is, would not have in the house.

It wouldn't have been that bad, had the waiter, spotting the four BLT's on her plate, not been obliged to say:
'Excuse me, madam, it's one per guest'.

Genetically Modified Lamb? Well it might have been. How is a girl to know?!

Grit said...

ha ha! blabbing all on the blog is about the best (and cheapest) form of therapy there is, isn't it?

I hope she didn't have to put them back. Bless her heart.

Actually, as a mum and after that text, that's quite a relief! lol

It's a funny story. But I still think the waiter was rude.

It's not on to embarrass people like that.

He wouldn't have said it to a man. I know I'm on my high horse here. This kind of petty put down really makes me cross.

Rationing sandwiches is just stupid. He was a mean nasty guy being horrid to your amazing daughter. Perhaps you can reassure me he was trying to flirt with her?

Kitty said...

Ah, she's learning the ways of the privileged - food is practically non-existent or meagre, and weird! x

Lamb doesn't come on a drumstick?!!!

I LOVE the picture at the top. Could I please borrow/liberate it?

Poor Girl, why is it the people "waiting on" at functions like this have the ability to make you feel like "an uber midget?"

I was at a lucerne factory last year with my friend waiting to buy our horse feed. There were open sacks of pellets on display, lucerne, lucerne and maise, maise, and bois (wood). Me and elaine were fascinated by the "bois" wondering maybe it bulked out cow feed or somthing. Elaine pushed me to ask the Monsieur "what animal eats wood?" he looked at me totally poe faced and said "it's for wood burning stoves." Well we couldn't get out of there quickly enough and fell into heaps of giggles in the car. Debs

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Also, just noticed that you have five girls. My SIL has five girls under the age of 8. It's a crazy life, but she loves it. I'll be checking out more of your blog!

Oh, you definitely have to send her to me over here- the BLT's are about the size of 3 of ours. And they're Really Very Good. Actually, there's no such thing as a small portion here. I've resorted to asking for a child's portion but such a thing doesn't seem to exist.

I'll vote for you- What is it? I'll have to do some back reading- too much happens when I'm away.

I need to know her secret to staying thin, evidently.

Hey, you made me laugh out loud this morning when I saw your comment. But you know I'm a good Protestant, and my Bible has "Rock" capitalized there... guess why?! :)

I love my Catholic readers!! :)
