Many years ago, we went to a fancy out of town restaurant with another couple who owned a restaurant in our town. There was a long waiting list, and we didn't have reservations, so the four of us all started addressing each other as "doctor" :"Well, what do you think, Dr.? " "Should we go somewhere else,Dr?". Loudly. And on and on. We were seated promptly, before others who did have reservations, and had a steady stream of waitstaff to our table all night, asking advice from the GP (DH), the psychiatrist ( me), the nurse, and of course, our friend, who identified himself as the gynecologist. I mean, they were lined up, as busy as the restaurant was! Total hilarity ensued at our table.

No worries, no waitstaff were injured in this total farce. We are not doctors, but we do play them in restaurants.

Ok! My 7 year old grandson and I were having a pea flinging fight at the supper table. We were sitting straight across from each other and were flinging peas at each other from a spoon. The last fling was mine when the spoon flew from my hands, along with the pea still intact and caught the poor kid right between the eyes with the mouth part of the spoon. He started to cry but then started laughing. It wasn't funny at first but thinking back now we both laugh. He is now 12.

We were newly married. We went to this beautiful Japanese restaurant on Kaui. I ordered sashimi, which I had never had before, and it was presented in the most glorious "jewelry box" with a lovely assortment. I took a huge bite of the nice looking green stuff that looked like toothpaste, very innocuous. Then I couldn't breathe for 5 minutes.

A nice Jewish couple was seated behind us, watching the whole spectacle, the wife said, " Dahlink, no, no, no, you mix the wasabe IN the soy sauce with your chopstick! THEN you dip your fish in it!"
