Issue 56: All of our yesterdays
I am going to be very self-conscious the next time I go out for Indian food.
Hilarious--thanks I needed a laugh this morning. And yeah I too will feel a bit self-conscious: the colonization of exotic foods.
I love that in England they say "go for a curry." But I wanted to have Thai food tonight. Is that still okay? I promise not to order too much food nor to mispronounce the names of the dishes.
I think my favorite line is "Oh get something a little bland!" Anyway, Dr. Write, when I go for Thai, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese or, sometimes, Japanese, I tend to point at the menu rather than slaughtering the actual name of the dish. Thank God for numbers next to dishes.
Finally, I see it and it makes me laugh. I liked all the section about blandness, but also the 24 plates of chips, because friends, in the U.K. chips go with everything.
