the animal

What a day. I can say that today, as something actually did happen.

So it all started at lunch. Brian and I decided to go to this small hidden Vietnamese restaurant. We have gone there before, but will probably never go there again. We tried to order this fried chicken stuff. Obviously, we didn’t do too well as we ended up with this chicken stew. It tasted pretty good and I kept raving about how I really liked the place. It was old and everything seemed so in tune. That was until I saw something black in my stew. At first I thought it was some kind of giant spice and I was even tempted to try it just by itself (so I could get a better taste of it). Luckily I kept dropping it back into the stew. That was due to my apparent lack of skill when it comes to eating with chopsticks. So, I finally grabbed it and tried to get a complete view of it. And…I saw legs…It was an animal. A cockroach. People joke around having flies in their soup, but this was a fully grown cockroach.

Brian laughed, until he realized that he had the exact same meal that I did. I showed the animal to the waiter (luckily it was dead) and he confirmed that I didn’t have to pay for my meal. Funny thing was, that Brian did have to pay for his meal. Even though it was out of the same pot. I guess I am lucky that I found my cockroach.

Tommorrow is the big day…
