No Coleslaw, No Problem.

Yesterday Ma, Ms. Yvette and I spent some time eating and chatting at Joe's Crab Shack before going to see Top Five. I was sure that I wanted the jumbo coconut shrimp but didn't want all the stuff that came with it (fries, hush puppies, and coleslaw). I was able to substitute broccoli for the fries, but the waitress wouldn't let me get rid of the hush puppies or the cole slaw. And I was just going to go along with that. But before she walked away Ma cut in, "Hey, you know you can just leave the coleslaw out, 'stead of wasting food. She's not gonna eat it anyway. "

That caught me so off guard! Like daaang,  Ma. I could've sworn I turned 22 two weeks ago. Why are you explaining my food preferences to waitstaff as if I'm some stubborn and picky child? I mean sure,  I probably wasn't going to eat it. But for all you know I might've been willing to give coleslaw another chance! Mama Miriam just came out of nowhere and shut it down, haha! I guess people never stop being children in their parents' eyes.

Tell you what, though. There was definitely no coleslaw on my plate after that!
