Plastic Wrap Is Chewy, Unlike A Layer Of Chicken Fat
While he was chewing an odd look crossed his face, and he started poking at his chicken.
Gilberto: There's a very thin layer of fat on this! I've never noticed that it had fat before. Boy, it sure is evenly dispersed. See?
I moved some sauce off of his chicken with a knife for a better look.
Me: Hon, that's not fat. That's seran wrap.
The cook had forgotten to remove the seran wrap from the chicken before throwing it into the deep fryer, and it had melted onto the meat.
Me: You just ate seran wrap! I hope it doesn't get stuck in your intestines! Oh my God, I have to blog about this.
We were both laughing so hard we had tears streaming down our cheeks.
Waiter: I am SO SORRY. We'll get a new meal out to your right away. Can I get you, well, can I get you ANYTHING else?
Gilberto: Oh no, bro, don't worry about it.
Me: It's actually a pretty funny story!
Gilberto: An honest mistake. No worries!
Me: I'm actually going to blog about it later!
The waiter looked at me shocked.
Me: Oh, but... No, it's not like that! I won't even write down the name of the restaurant.
More shocked staring.
Me: I mean, I'm not a food critic or anything, ha ha ha. Just a little ol' blogger, and...
I forced myself to stop talking and let the last remnants of my voice fade into the uncomfortable silence.
Gilberto: Ha ha ha?
Me: Ha ha ha?
So we're pretty sure that while his new meal didn't have seran wrap, it probably had something else added. And we didn't order soda refills, just in case.
But the highlight of the evening was finding out that the Chicken Fried Steak was NOT FRESH! Shattered dreams, I tell ya.
