In which even MY high standards of vulgarity are trumped...

It’s not too often that I am NOT the most obnoxious person sitting at the dinner table, but I daresay I was recently, even if only temporarily, trumped…

…and by a Brit! Not The Brit of course, the pillar of politeness that he is, but A Brit nonetheless. I should have known that if anyone were going to make me spray a Napa Valley syrah through my nasal passages, it would be this particular Brit.

The Storyteller, one of The Brit’s close childhood friends (and, incidentally, the brother of one of my favorite bloggers), blows through town every so often on the wings of a Virgin. While mounted on said Virgin, he offers up the best “First Class Cart Tart” service (as he endearingly refers to it) at approximately 30,000 ft. While dismounted, and safely at or around sea level, he offers some of the best gay company on this end of SF (and by “gay” I mean both “merry” and “homosexual”). All of this simply goes to say that his brief visits don’t go a single minute without an entertaining story of some sort, all of which result in deep belly laughter and, ultimately, syrah through the nose. I should just stop taking sips when he begins to speak, really.

At dinner the other night, we stuffed ourselves silly with divine food and drink, all the while disturbing the peace with our raucous laughter. As per usual. Our dinner plates were cleared, just in time to spare me the embarrassment I would have suffered had I given in to my urges to lick up the remnants of my seared scallops and potato puree. Then, our attentive waiter handed us the dessert menu.

“Room for dessert?” the waiter asked.

The Storyteller’s response: “I doubt I could even fit so much as a cock in my mouth right now, no matter how much I might want to!”

I’m assuming the restaurant has stain remover for their white tablecloths.

Hope so.

Please, there's always room for a cock.

Well the second brit in your life is now sitting 6000 miles away with a bright red face laughing of embarrasment. A fab night as always... but now researching into alcohol free beverages for my next to both, Dan x
ps: we did tip that poor waiter I hope!!

I have to agree about the fact that there is, indeed, always room for a cock... but on those nights, when that dinner was rather filling, you may want to abstain from swallowing...

mist - I agree. I love chicken. It tastes like, well, chicken.

dan - How about we make a deal that when you next come, we won't abstain from alcohol but I WILL abstain from blogging about anything you OR I might say while under the influence! (Though, frankly, I thought your comment was hysterical.) (And yes, we tipped our waiter quite generously. He did, afterall, have to deal with syrah on the tablecloth.) :)

dochechka - Listen, how you eat your chicken is of no concern to me young lady! ;)

nicole - Heaven forbid you ever meet The Storyteller! You'll be spitting as much as I'm usually spraying! (What a duo!)

ncr - Hi! I can only hope the other patrons of the restaurant were as charmed!

madelyne - Hi! (I know, I'm still giggling about it!)

In some parts of the city, this would not have been noticed.
