Gad I am a cheap date.
Hey, I said "cheap DATE" not "cheapSKATE"!!!
Since I was dining solo tonight, I treated myself to some Japanese takeout before leaving the mall. Chicken Teriyaki with veges and fried rice... mmmmm. Enough food for two meals set me back a measly $ 5.69.
Okay. Maybe I possess an itty-bitty smidgen of cheapskatedness...
As my pleasant but admittedly English-challenged server was wrapping it up for me, she stopped.
I had thought perhaps the order was wrong...
... but no, it was tossed, sizzled and steamed right in front of my hungry eyes, so I KNEW they got it correct.
My stomach growled as I wondered how much longer I would have to stand there.
She opened up the box again, gave me a big smile and plopped in a free springroll.
"You Have Happy Day!" she beamed and handed me the bag.
And so I did.
Man. I can be swayed for mere pennies.
Or whatever the hell a springroll goes for nowadays, apparently.
