Overheard At The Restaurant

We went out for lunch Sunday. As we were in line the woman in front of us was picking her toppings.

"I want green cheese" she said.

The girl behind the counter looked puzzled. "Do you mean sour cream or shredded cheese"?

No, That green cheese y'all have.

I'm sorry but we don't have green cheese, just the shredded cheese.

"There it is", as she pointed thru the glass, "That green cheese"

"OH, OK, ma'am we call that guacamole".

And suddenly I'm thinking of THE ODD COUPLE:

Oscar: "I have brown sandwiches and green sandwiches."
Murray: "What's the green sandwich?"
Oscar: "It's either very new cheese or very old meat."

MOV said...

never forget the time I went on a double date and the stupid girl sitting across from me ordered a "quesadilla, but without the cheese." I don't speak a lot of Spanish, but I do know enough to tell her (politely, I am not that mean) that queso means cheese and she should order just a plain tortilla, to which she replied, "I ALWAYS order it that way, they know exactly what I mean." Yeah, as they are laughing at her in the kitchen....

ps-- new follower here! where have you been hiding in the blogoshere all my life?!?

I've already admitted to those of you who have their emails attached to the comments that about 2 years ago I didnt know what quacamole tasted like. Turns out it's pretty good stuff and we make it at the house quite often now.

And MOV, Thanks for joining.
