    No, but I believe I did that once.

    Not exactly that way, but in a fish house in Washington I asked a woman what her delightful-looking order was.  I ordered the same thing.  It was a delicious fish platter and every bite yum.  I was careful to remove the oyster so as not to accidentally place in my mouth.  I would not repeat this in a three-star Michelin restaurant.

    Michelin makes tires. I have never gotten the connection to restaurants. I thought Zagat did the restaurant guidebook.

    The story of how that happened is very interesting.  It's easy to find if you're really interested.

      I’m confused about you finding it delicious yet not wanting it in your mouth.

    Just the piece that was obviously an oyster.  The platter was beautiful and very appetizing.

    Yes, but without the staring.

    Why yes, it happened last night when I was eating at the cafe just down the street from you.  I was having their Green Goddess Avocado Burger, a meal made with me in mind because it has Goddess in its name, obviously.  It was a burger topped with sliced avocado and Green Goddess dressing, mmm, it was absolutely delicious.  Everyone was staring at it and they all wanted some of it.

    Randy might enjoy it more with impossible beef or a portobello mushroom patty instead of a burger.

    The impossible beef would be an excellent addition to their menu.  The fact that it’s an uncapitalized proper noun makes it even better.  I like the way you think!

    They should advertise it in their window.  I know!

    “Try the newest edition to our menu, the impossible beef”.

    If we’re not going to capitalize Impossible Beef, we might as well go for broke by using edition instead of addition.

     You slathered it with mayonnaise too, didn’t you? Just rub salt and vinegar into my wounds already. Grrrrrrr.
