Fodder for your amusement....

So, last Wednesday evening Shooter and I went to dinner with our small group from church. We went to a new Japanese steakhouse in our area and had a great time!

Although, it started off rocky because we got there and sat down and ordered. We got out soup and salad....and appetizers....but no chef! We had to have waited 30 min...finally my fab friend Judy went to go and speak with the manager. Shortly thereafter the manager turns up at the table and goes into the big long spiel about how one of their chefs had his car stolen earlier in the day. That the police had found his car and came to get him from work. He left to go and get his car and didn't tell the manager. He told one of the servers that he was leaving and the manager found out from the server. She went on to explain that she was so very sorry and they had no way of knowing and that the chef had gone and cashed his check at the bank and left the money in his car. She explained that she had told the chef that they had probably followed him from the bank and then stole his car. She then explained that she had no idea what he was doing leaving his cash in the car but that she didn't think that the money would be there when he went to see his car. Ugh! Cry me a river...or as my friend Dusty said....Boo Freakin' Hoo.


Well, we finally get a chef at the table and he put on the usual show. The food was quite good....not sure if it was really that good or if I was just exceptionally hungry. At the end he does the trick of tossing food for you to catch in your mouth. Usually they do this with shrimp, I think, but he did it with bits of chicken. Well, everyone did pretty well with catching the chicken...and when it came to me I did my best. The first piece bounced off my chin and onto my plate. The second piece took a nosedive into my bra. YUP...HOT chicken right straight into my bazoomba holder...not good!!! I received all the requsite cheers and jeers and promptly shook the chicken out of my shirt...it was hot after all! I managed to get the third piece in my mouth...thank goodness!


So, that was my ultra embarassing episode for the month....please God, don't torture me like that in front of my friends! I can't help it that you blessed me with more than the average female....

I ADORE Japanese steakhouses! In fact, that's where we're taking our friend when we get home for watching the monsters =D

The guys here don't toss stuff in your mouth though, he only tossed peas onto our plates :)

and yes, it's just THAT good!

I can't believe that manager told you the chef's entire life story. I'm sure he loved that! But at least you got a little chicken in your boob.

My daughters like to go there just for the cool bottled drinks! lol

Saw your comment on Beth's "Around the Funny Farm!" and wanted to say "hello" to the person with the same 'take' on Beth's story as I had.

"Hello!"

Ok, Where Was I? said...

At least there was something there to catch the chicken. That could have been more embarrassing.

HEE HEE HEE.. I loved the story. I always manage to get conked in the forehead with a piece of shrimp. Now I usually turn 3 shades of red and shriek NO NO NO, not me!!! That 3 shades of red thing is hard to do, believe you me.
