Two thoughts went through my head:
1) Shrimp is very low calorie.
2) I hate to hurt her feelings.
I ordered the special. Honestly, less than two seconds later I had buyer's remorse. I knew I had made a bad choice. The shrimp special came with grits and a special sauce. I don't even like grits!Ted even felt bad for me because he didn't want to hurt her feelings either. He offered to share his food. The good news is that I only ate a couple of shrimp. We took the rest of the food with us and hopefully his roommate likes shrimp. Learning lesson from this experience? The waiter or waitress only want you to be happy. Order the food that will make you happy in the morning.
