Tonight Ken and I went to a local Mexican restaurant for dinner. I asked for water with no ice, Ken order soda with no ice. You would not believe the amount of frozen water the accompanied our drinks. It was laughable. It got me to thinking about all the times I've ordered the same drink and all the variety of interpretations that have shown up at my table. For instance:
- If you ask some fast food joints for a soda with no ice, you will get a soda that is only 3/4 of the way full.
- If you ask them why it's not full, they tell you it's pre-programmed to give you a certain amount of drink and they can't help that the ice isn't in there to bring it to the top.
- One time my Mom, Heather and I ate at a Chinese buffet somewhere north of Seattle and they offered milk with the meal. We always take advantage of bottomless milk, because it's expensive! After the waiter filled our 6 ounce drinks twice each, he started only bring glasses half full. I'm not going to lie. Those drinks were half empty. Here's his tip...fill the glasses to the top.
- If I order my drink first, and then my kids do, it's 4 drinks ordered with no ice. When Ken orders last, he just asks for a diet soda and the waiter actually asks, 'with ice?' Ken often responds, surprise me.
Okay, so clearly this post is boring and not really informative. But I can write about whatever I want. Today it's cold beverages. Please hold the ice. And fill the cup up to the top please. Gracias!!
