I'm not surprised.

I hadn't seen it before, but I assumed it was something they'd gleaned from the internet. I ate there once, and have no reason to expect originality from them. :P

I wonder if that's what these mice were fighting over.

It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Been there, done that. Helps if it's Cajun coffee with chicory.

I used to meet several ladies for a very wet lunch.    Since I drove some 15 miles to join them, my drink of choice was a double espresso over ice.    After about 4, I would begin to twitch.   I switched to bitters and seltzer, pleasant and not so jangling.

Basic translation:

me: I love lunch

lunch: Thank you

me: What?

lunch: Say it again

I think we should spend our down time inventing a dish worthy of the name Gaelic Bread. It wouldn’t have to involve kale, would it?

Are we approaching this from etymology or pronunciation?     As in potato bread or garlic bread?

Happy St. Patrick’s day.

May the wind at your back not be a result of the corned beef and cabbage you had for lunch.
