So, my husband and I were having our late dinner after arriving in Vegas at the China Grill in the Mandalay Bay. A very shwanky restaurant with a fusion nouveau asian style. Nothing was under $30, and EVERYTHING was a la carte. Love those kind of places eh? You just KNOW you aren't getting out of the restaurant for under $100.
Anyway, we were sitting at a table for two, and there were 3 or 4 tables for two in a row, tight together. So tight, we could see what everyone else was having for dinner. The couple to my left, left and left their dessert tray on their table only 1/2 eaten. Their were a variety of cookies, and something that looked like a creme brulee, and they had eaten that, but left everything else untouched. (Click on it to see the yummy left-overs) Can you see it? Just sitting there in all of its goodness???
We finished our meal, but decided dessert would be a bit MUCH, so I JOKINGLY said, "We should just take theirs!" (It had been sitting there for at least 10 minutes) My husband said, Ok! Go ahead, GRAB IT!
I protested and started to giggle, thinking it WOULD be kind of funny. But was WAY too embarrassed to be even thinking of such a thing in a fancy restaurant. Then he said, "Well, if you won't do it, I WILL!" He started to lean over to grab it and I kicked him under the table. His big gesture to grab it was WAYYY to obvious, and although the restaurant was dark, I KNEW someone would notice.
It was then that it happened... He goaded me on... referred to my prior college days when I would do all sorts of things upon a dare (crawling army style down the aisle at Safeway with a jar of salsa in my hand, on a Saturday night...at BYU--Don't ask, it was a dare). My adrenaline started to pump, and I started to laugh at the thought....I couldn't let him think that I had gone SOFT! I thought about it for a few more minutes... and my husband goaded me on a few more times, and .... I DID IT! I grabbed it!!!! You might think that is gross.... BUT, IT WAS ON A DOILEY!!!!!
