Life as such is not easy and when you’re a vegetarian its no walk in the park. After spending the whole morning shopping we decided to get a bite to eat at the food court since it was already half past two and we’d be too tired to make lunch after driving home.
Scene 1. Amigo’s Mexican counter
Staff: May I take your order?
Me: I’ll have a Burrito please and a plate of Nachos
Staff: Sir, we have beef steak with cheese, chicken fajita with jalapeno blah blah blah…
My brain: I’ll have the beef steak with extra beef with a side order of beef salad with extra beef, and while you’re at it, why dont you blend some of that beef into my soft drink ?
Me: *beads of sweat running down my brow* Er.. ah.. I’ll have a veggie burrito. Er.. do you have a veggie option?
Staff: One veggie coming right up sir!
My Brain: DAMN YOU!!! I wanted BEEF!!! Goddammit!! RED MEAT!!
Me: Shut up!!
Scene 2. Nolita’s Pizza
Staff: What can I get you? We have a fresh batch of pepperoni pizza.
Me: *plams sweaty, hands are shaking and mouth has gone completely dry* ‘gulp’… I’ll have a slice of your veggie pizza please.
My brain: YOU SONOFABITCH!! Didnt you hear the man say PEPPERONI? Take a look at that magnificent New York pizza with those chewy slices of pepperoni nestled in a bed of warm cheese! Whats wrong with you?
Staff: Can I get you something else sir? We also have a Meat Lover’s Pizza
Me: *coughs* Just an order of baked wedges, thats all! *picks up order and runs away from the pepperoni pizza.
This is just Day 5 out of 50! 😀
