Diner Yack - 3

Conversations at restaurants and eat-out places can be strange, weird, wicked, humorous, sarcastic, out of place and possibly all of the afore mentioned at the same time... Hmm... and this piece here could be none of the above... :D ... I'll follow this post up with a couple more (when time permits) and they for sure will be more than a case in point for the statement i already made....

So, there is this small Indian kebab place in Tucson on Univ. Blvd., apparently quite popular among the American folk... I loved the Haryali Kebab there... and have been coerced into being one of the regulars there... but like always, too much of a good thing is never too good... so a few days back, i walked in and almost walked out without getting a thing but then changed my mind and got some rice with chicken tikka masala... So, there i am, digging into my lunch, being a good glutton and all... and this girl (tailed by a dude, a possible date) walks over, dips her finger nail in my gravy (well almost), looks me in the eye and says why didn't you ask me to get that ??? I had to counter her, and i had two options in mind, I either go with,
  • I wouldn't get to taste that glitter on your nails then, would I ???..
  • Or, say that i would do so on OUR date.
While i sat there contemplating as to which would be a smarter retort, she asks me what it was... and i shoot a blunt "#8 on the menu"... The couple settle in the booth next to mine and turn their attention to the LCD TV which was playing songs from HUM TUM...

Guy : That dancing dude looks like this crooked nosed actor...

Gal: Who ?

Me thinks : Huh !!!

Guy : That chap, he'zz u know done a few with Ben Stiller...

Gal: err ???

Me thinks: Vince Vaughan... but no, can't be... who else ???

Guy: "I like can't like remember the name... he like did that army like flick... where the force is like trying to get him back and stuff like that you know..."

Gal: Is it like a new one ?

Me thinks: "Like" like beats the $hit out of like any other word like f***, when like counting like the number of times like they use like that word that they like... Oh, and Saving private ryan... ?????? Matt Damon, nay, can't be...

and this that, yuppety-yup and yackety-yack follows, and then,

Guy: OWEN WILSON !!!

Gal: OH YEAH !!!

Me thinks: so, starsky and hutch, and behind enemy lines, and the crooked nose, all fine ... But, Saif and Owen Wilson, NO EFFIN WAY !!!!!!!!!!!

what do u guys dig ???
