Since I didn’t eat lunch today, I was kind of hungry on the way home from work. I was thinking, “Hmm.. How about a Whopper? That sounds good. I think I’ll get a Whopper.”
As I got closer I thought, “I wonder if I should try that Siam Cuisine place. They’ve been around for almost a year and I still haven’t tried their food. Maybe I’ll go there today since Brian won’t be with me and I don’t have to listen to him whine.”
So at the last second I decided to go to Siam Cuisine. I actually passed it and had to turn back. But that is where I ended up going for dinner. Big mistake. Maybe my missing my turn was a sign. You know, God telling me not to go there. I should’ve paid attention.
It doesn’t look too bad on the outside. The inside is furnished in your typical hole-in-the-wall resto style. There was only one other couple there. I was thinking of just getting my order to go, but then I figured I didn’t want to have to contend with the cats so despite my dislike for eating alone I decided to stay and eat there.
I look at the menu and, out of all of the food choices, my idiot self goes directly for the “Adventures” section. I ordered eggplant in black bean sauce with pork as my choice of meat. I was expecting a concoction similar to my favorite eggplant dish at PF Chang’s. Was I ever wrong! It looked and smelled scary.
I had asked her for mild, but she either didn’t understand or didn’t hear me. She seemed to comprehend and speak English fine, so it must’ve been the hearing thing. My mouth was on fire!
I’m actually quite surprised that I haven’t had to go to the bathroom yet. If I were Brian, I would probably in the bathroom right now instead of blogging. Think of Ben Stiller’s character in Along Came Polly. Thank God I have a strong constition.
I really should’ve gotten a Whopper. This is what I get for trying to be adventurous. Never again.
