“Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant filled with odd little waiters who bring you things you never asked for & don’t always like.” – Lemony Snicket
I’m goofy, most people will attest to that, I’ll start talking like a French person for no reason or dance like a crazy robot just because there’s a fat beat. But regardless of all that, I’m not very spontaneous. I have certain things that I always do, certain foods that I always order at restaurants (usually ribs or pasta). Which is why my new thing this week was to let a waiter pick for me.
I went into Mi Ranchito on Thursday & told my waiter, Roberto, “Bring me whatever you want.”
“OK,” he said. “I’ll bring you the best.”
He seemed so confident in his choice that I didn’t really have time to be scared or nervous. He even suggested that I have some avocado salsa with my chips (which wasn’t bad). When Roberto brought out the steaming plate & set it before me, I was delighted & relieved to see that it was something called ‘Cancun fajitas’. Which means beans, rice, pico de gallo & bacon-wrapped shrimp. Which means that I loved it. Which means I just might practice this sort of spontaneity a little more often.
