Hot diggity dog

 


Last night I took the kids to a Grumpyville Puck-Offs hockey game. At some point Craig declared he was hungry, so we went to the snack bar.

We were almost up to the counter, and the guy in front of us ordered a chili-dog. He paid the counter lady, and a minute later she set it in front of him.

The guy didn't leave the counter. He picked up the entire chili-dog with both hands, and in one continuous movement shoved the entire thing into his mouth.

Then he pushed the empty paper plate back across the counter, mumbled "thank you," and left.

Craig suddenly wasn't that hungry.

That's impressive, considering the large portions you Americans serve.

Did you slip that guy some money in advance in order to provide adverse conditioning to junk food for the offspring?

A short while ago I had opportunity to be atop a world famous observation deck in NYC and a group of Asian tourist was present and they excitedly chatted up the possibility of Hot Dogs for lunch from a street vendor. I did inform them that it was not real dog , my wife was not amused, as her appetite was similarly dampened.

That guy saved you 15 bucks, easy.

While that could prove an impressive skill, it's certainly not very appetizing...

my husband used to sing bits of a humorous song about tourists and tacky trinkets....saved us much money and aggravation!
and being able to convince an adolescent male NOT to convince large amounts of junk food so effectively is a superpower, of a sort.

Would Craig have been impressed if the man was instead a teenage girl?
