Superlative1 vs. Random Trick

July 14, 2008

So I was meeting Maria (pictured in my blog) and Melissa (mutual friend) at Coffee Bean in Hastings for lunch this afternoon. While there I stepped aside to decide what I wanted and came back to order then all of a sudden this young lady wanted to start up now cuz in her eyes I came in after her so she should get to go before me, don’t mind I was with two people who got there JUST before her.

I started ordering and she was like “I’m sorry, who was here first, you or me?” I was like “I was with them” and she goes, “yet you came in after them” so I was like “that’s nice” and finished my order. Then she kept glaring over at our table, so i kept talking about how petty she is and she needs to let it go and when she was right by us ordering i said “You can dress em up but they’ll always be what? Ghetto”

Points to remember:
1) She does not factor into my life nor I in hers, what’s the big deal.

2) She STILL got her food before I did ANYWAY and

3) I’m pretty, I win!

Okay the third point not so mature but nevertheless valid. I wonder if she were at a fine dining restaurant if she would have gotten up and started a brawl with a table who placed their order even though they came in after her.

My only concern was that she was going to shank me in the parking lot like a prison movie…


Fish: The Other Vegetable

March 21, 2008

The sun rises on yet another Good Friday, the day marked by many Christian sects as the day Jesus Christ died for our sins so that we may eat fish.

I know I may have just lost some of you, but if you’re from the Caribbean, you may not be so confused. It is customary that on this day the eating of meat is not done. Enter Fish, the other vegetable, because I don’t understand why people separate fish from meat. Last time I checked fish are very much alive, given that they you know, swim, eat, procreate and die.

Also, like any other meat, they were hunted down, stricken in their prime and served up in a variety of dishes with an array of garnishes.

But beyond just that is the fact that many ‘vegetarians’ eat fish. Call me crazy but that just makes NO sense. Anyway, I have to go read up on some Mahi Mahi recipes… this day shall be long.
