RE: The Other Pickle
Pickled? Last night, that was me. Y'see, I ate at Copper Creek Brewing. I ordered a reuben, which was superb. Instead of fries, I substituted red beans and rice. I asked the manager, Brian, for some Tabasco(R), and he came out of the kitchen with a garnish cup full of it. Absently, unthinkingly, lost in a conversation with three people at once, I updumped the whole thing on the beans and rice. GENERAL ALARM FIRE INSIDE ORT.! I had to quaff 8 pints of beer, with a glass of ice water with each, to placate those fire demons. Between that and a second order of rice and beans intermixed with the first, some ketchup, some sour cream, and quite a bit of time, I was able to leave in one piece, tastebuds relatively intact.
Next time I order that, I'll bring my own bottle of Tabasco(R), and dripdrop it on myself.
