My Food-Fu is Seriously Defective.

Out for a 1/2 day scout with the Director and other Arty Types. We were supposed to call our lunch orders in to the office when we were headed back from Brooklyn. Ah, delivery guy shows up just minutes after we get back.

Guess who's order was missing?


I didn't want to wait however long it might take to get the backup sandwich, so I just went to the place around the corner. I order the Italian Sandwich. The girl says, "Large"? I say (and admittedly, I might have phrased this better), "What's the difference?"

The girl says, "The large is bigger."

Gotta fix that food mojo. Hunger is very unpleasant.

When I have no frame of reference, I always ask "How large is Large?" Seems to work most of the time.

Our sizes are Large, Grande, and Godzilla.

Nathan, maybe you should quit eating. It seems to be more trouble than it's worth.

I just had a really nice bento box for lunch...with the beef negimaki.

"...large is bigger."


What's extremely funny is that a 'large' these days are like, buckets.

"Yeah, I'd like the bucket o' Coke, please with the bathtub of popcorn. Does that come with the feed harness?"
