My Indian Food CSB:

When I was in the navy, my ship did a port visit in Singapore, myself and two of my friends wound up in an Indian restaurant for lunch.  It was a set menu, so we didn't exactly know what we were ordering.

Of the various dishes they brought out, one was a white lump in this yellow stuff.  All through lunch everybody was eyeing it, but nobody wanted to try it.  Eventually, I thought 'why not,' so I tried it.

Right after I ate it, both friends asked, "What was that?"

"It was a potato," I said.

"What was that yellow stuff?"

Butter.

Bottom line, because it was in an Indian restaurant - three Americans were afraid to eat a potato.

1) I Could Murder A Curry: STFU and GTHOI.

2) He Wants His Home And Security.  He Wants To Live Like A Sailor At Sea: It's not like it's an unethical job, like say telemarketer.  Treat it like anyone else you might date who's a freelancer.  GTHOI or DTMFA.

3) The Couldn't Shut Up.  So I Hung Up: While I can't dismiss there being some actual vocal damage on your partner, I mostly think it's in your head.  I think you just want an excuse to DTMFA without guilt.

4) Grapefruit Diet!  Throw Out The Pizza And Beer: I know it's difficult to stay on task when losing weight, but having a nag will only produce resentment long term.  Best bet is to reduce temptation by keeping certain foods away.  Your partner should also make sure their thyroid activity has been checked.  That was a huge find for me.

5) I'm Just A Sucker With Low Self-Esteem: I don't see how you have any obligation to this person. Tell them to STFU and MYOB.

6) No Jokes, No Rights, Sit Tight, Don't Fool Around: There's no need to consult an advice columnist here.  If you are friends, you can bring this up.

7) I Leave My Entire Estate...To The People Of Calgary So The Can Afford To Move Somewhere Decent: The great thing is you can change it and not tell anyone other than the people involved in the legal process.  You won't be around to hear the complaints.  No one is entitled to your things, alive or dead, they are yours to distribute as you see fit.

8) Jon Jacob Jingleheimer-Schmidt: I had thought triple hyphenated last names were banned under the Geneva Convention, specifically as a war crime.  Anyway, you have a chance to end this atrocity.  Take it.

9) Murder A Curry II: Right, STFU and GTHOI.

Almost like she can only afford canned veggies, was somehow able to convince the kid to eat them, then you gotta get all fancy with fresh stuff.

No.  Unfortunately the waitress put the ghee in a spot on the table, and the guys I was with couldn't find it.

It's a good idea not to introduce new foods to littler kids without warning the parents, in case of allergies, but honestly, if the kid willingly ate vegetables you won.

Hooker with a Penis: I would love it if this happened since it would give me an excuse to take the kids out to Indian food all the time. Never heard of spicy hurting little tummies either, millions of kids in the Southwest get by just fine, not to mention the billions around the world who grew up without the convenience of frozen nuggets for 3 meals a day.


I consider myself pretty good on the spicy stuff, but even the kids in Indonesia will kick my ass when it comes to sambal (the red chili paste). One spoonful is enough for me, and even then I keep some "clean" rice on the side to finish with. They load up on that stuff.

What grown man uses the term "small tummies" when talking with other adults?

Great, now I'm hungry for Indian and with 10s of thousands of students pouring into town going near the strip of ethnic restaurants near campus would be unwise.

If this guy isn't fake, this would be one of the very rare instances where I would understand if the wife had an affair, not approve necessarily but fully understand.

Many years back when #1 son was about 2 we got invited over to a visiting professor's house.  She was from India and made up a traditional meal for us, but it was her first time trying to feed traditional Indian food to a little American kid and she was a bit nervous he might not like it since the spices were unusual for Westerners.

#1 son looks over the plate, picks up a little piece of something and puts it in his mouth.  Chews about twice, and gets this big smile on his face.  Sat there happily jamming whatever it was (i forget) into his mouth for the next ten minutes until he couldn't eat any more.

Smart kid- the food was excellent.

/Sushi didn't go as well
//#2 son happily chowed down on Thai fried rice from a local place that made it hot enough even people who like hot food like me had trouble with it.
