Do tell

Because I have no goddamn sense, I went through the drive-thru at Long John Silver's on my way back from yoga class. MB wanted this la-ti-da tilapia platter with corn and rice, and I wanted plain old thigh-fluffing fried fish. I placed my order and pulled around, and the girl at the register absolutely slammed the sliding window open. I was slightly alarmed, but she didn't seem pissy, just enthusiastic about opening the window. She confirmed a few things about my order, and I settled in for the promised 5 minute wait for MB's tilapia.

Then, she was back. I looked up as the window banged open again. "Complications have developed," she announced gravely. "We're out of rice." And that just may be the best line I've heard all week.


  1. "thigh-fluffing" is probably the best phrase i've heard all week. if you don't mind, i'm going to use it when H asks me where the heck all the halloween candy went.

  2. Glad to be of service ;)
