It's Just Extra Protein

Last night Beverly went to supper with some friends from when she worked in Dallas. They met in Grapevine and I'm sure had a wonderful time. So I was left to myself.

I have enjoyed getting chicken fried rice from a local restaurant, so I called and ordered some. I went home and dug in. As I got toward the end, I noticed that something appeared to have fallen out of the styrofoam container. On closer observation, it was A ROACH! A nice, big, juicy one.

Ever since then, my stomach has been unsettled. I just keep seeing that ugly bug. This might help me to be able to lose some weight, because my appetite is low right now. Also, my list of restaurants in Decatur is getting shorter and shorter. I hate that, because I really want to patronize the local businesses. But, really now!

Well if that's not the grossest thing I've heard in a while I don't know what is. You seem to have bad luck with some mom and pop places. Didn't you break a tooth in Mesquite?

I'll give you $1000 if you can get Jonathan to that place.
In fact, Jonathan might never come back to this blog after that story.

Melanie, you are right. I broke a tooth at a Mexican restaurant in Mesquite. It cost me about $800. But this was worse.

Josh, I'd love to take you up on your dare, but I would be wasting my time. Besides, I don't think I could ever go back.

I'm outta here...

I didn't know that you had such bad experiences. If we ever come to Decatur, do you think we could just throw something on the grill?

I just love roach-fried rice.

That is disgusting story! I can't believe I kissed you goodnight - even after knowing it! Jonathan, come on!!!! ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS! You can do it - just once!

Jonathan,

I will split it with you. 50-50. That's $300 for you, and $700 for me.

OH MY GOODNESS! I would have went nuts and then called Jonathan for some help.

I am guessing Jonathon is not a fan of roaches? Neither is Terry. Horrified!!! So Josh, Can we get the $1,000 if we drive from Tennessee and get Terry to go to the restaurant? Heck, looking in the check book, I might take Rick's "50-50" too.
