Me: "I'd like the veggie plate, please."
Helpful guy: "Which sides would you like?"
Me: "The broccoli salad and the green salad."
Helpful guy: "What kind of dressing?"
Me: "Oh, um, like vinaigrette."
Annoying guy: "Do you want a drink with that or a 'like" drink with that."
Me: "I brought my own water. You're really annoying." (It was safe to say, my food had already been plated up.)
Guy standing next to annoying guy: "He is."
Me: "Well, it had to be said...like totally!"
What can I say, my friends, I'm, like, a product of the 80s and 90s. I was, like, in California when "Valley Girl" came out. It was, like, totally unavoidable!
Moral of this story? Even vegetarians can't avoid a ribbing when they go to a barbecue joint.
Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
