Should I eat it? Would you eat it?

  1. Dec 4, 2004 #1
    In the brief space of time since my last post I jumped offline, got in my truck and drove to the local Mexican Food Restaurant, not Taco Bell, but the kind where they serve Menudo on Saturday's and Tuesday's and you can get a tongue burrito if you're so inclined. I'm not so inclined. I pulled up to the drive thru and heard "Que" I said, "I'd like a carne asada burrito, three rolled tacos with guacamole (not really authentic Mexican food, but I like them) and a large Pepsi." Then I heard "Is that all?.....gringo"
    I'm not sure if I heard gringo, but it sounded like gringo. I drove forward to the window, paid the $6.90 and waited. Pretty soon the guy gave me my food and he smiled at me and said, "enjoy your food.......gringo." Now he said the gringo part as he was turning away from me, but it was a weird smile on his face and I know I didn't imagine it.
    I don't know if I could see a loogie in the burrito, I didn't dissect it. I'm hungry and if I can't see a loogie maybe I'd mistake it for guacamole. What do you think? It's probably safe right? These guys wouldn't be in business if they spit in food would they? I didn't say anything to provoke anyone to hawk something into my dinner. I'm going to eat the tacos they look safe. I'll see how hungry I am after they are gone.

    Hey Guido (Tribdog's name in Ms Reeves spanish class) since you have a birthday coming up are you going to attempt the same feat which you accomplished on your 18th? You know, X shots of tequila for your X Birthday.

    I miss Filibertos :tongue2:

    Help Trib get home in this little game (move mouse left/right to keep balance)

    Well, it wouldn't be authentic Mexican food unless it induces Montezuma's revenge. Why would you eat at a place that leaves you wondering if it's safe to eat the food? But given the trouble you run into when playing with fire, I can see why it might not be advisable to let you near a stove. But still, you can be more selective of where you buy your food, can't you?

    The moment trib posts a thread asking if he should do something, it doesn't matter what it is, he shouldn't do it.

    EVER.

    Gringo means foreign person.


    Btw, trib, you're about late twenties/early thirties right? May i ask how you managed to live that long without killing yourself? Just seems like you are obsessed with fire, and other dangerous things.

    Congratulations.

    *rubs hands gleefully*

    Tribdog's brother is back! Cool! So, I've been dying to know...does he even know how to boil water, any clue what the knobs on a stove do? Is this fast food/take out diet because he doesn't know which end of a stove is up, or because he's just too lazy to bother cooking for himself? :biggrin: It's okay, you can tell us, I won't tell him you said anything. :wink:

    Okay, I see, none of you were taught anything about how to use a stove. What about a bbq? Did you boys learn to grill stuff? That's a lot like playing with fire, so maybe more appealing? :biggrin:

    BBQs are fun, just be careful when using the jellied lighter fluid, if it gets on the food it makes the food taste bad, even after burning off.

    Speaking of which, maybe we should force trib to only use the jellied stuff, that way he can't make the fire run up the stream and into the bottle of lighter fluid.

    Oh yeah fire. I know that one. One of my favorite things growing up was stealing my dads smokeless black powder (used for reloading) and making a long line of powder up to a large pile of the stuff. FFOOOMM :biggrin:
    Not good to cook with though.

    Oh geez, with an 8 yr age gap, I might have hoped you two weren't quite so alike! :tongue2: I think we need to start PF cooking classes so you guys don't starve. :tongue:

    What you're asking strikes me as similar in nature to this;

    If hungry, I would have eaten it too. Old saying; "wat no kill you fatten you". It is certainly not something I'd want to have happen every day, but comfort may be found knowing there are worse things than a little bloody booger swimming in a small green sea of snot :tongue2: (Hepatitis, for example :frown: ). :biggrin:
