Cherry Tomatoes, Garlic Toast and Beans

Legal disclaimer: If there is any chance you may want to date me in the future, do NOT read this. It will most assuredly ruin it. Besides, I don't eat any of this stuff on dates... well, not the first one at least.

This is a recipe for lunchtime disaster. Oh, and by the way, this is #64 on the things I wouldn’t tell someone I was hoping to date.

Now then. A group of my co-workers and I went out to lunch today. Sonny’s Barbeque. Fabulous. First of all, BBQ is always messy. I should have known. Secondly, I am wearing an ivory skirt. It might as well be a sauce magnet. So I order the salad bar and the bbq chicken.

I love love love tomatoes. Of course all they have are cherry tomatoes, and not so ripe. But I am determined. The skin is somewhat tough, and my knife isn’t sharp. It was like one of those times that occurs in slow motion in your mind almost before it really happens. I was attempting to cut into a very large tomato covered in gooey ranch dressing when ZING! The tomato jumps up at my boobs then begins its descent. After splashing ranch on my boob, very Lewinski style, it bounced down to my ivory skirt, splatted, then to the floor where it bounced under the table, against a friend’s ankle only to roll to a stop next to the work boot of a very very hot tattooed man. I was busy swabbing my breast when I saw said tattooed man begin to stand. My “nooooo” was apparently too late. He stepped on my little tomato, making it finally burst, spraying its tomato goo all over his other leg. Nice. Needless to say, I didn’t leave with his number.

With my lunch came two very delicious and buttery pieces of garlic toast. Shouldn’t be hard. (I’m rolling my eyes here.) I swear it just slipped out of my hand at one point and landed butter side down on my thigh. Luckily, my skirt is slit over the thigh, and it was only on bare skin. But suffice it to say, I will smell a teensy bit like garlic butter until I can shower, despite the best efforts of bathroom soap.

Beans, beans, good for your heart. Damn, Sonny’s has good beans. I love them. They don’t love me. Let’s leave it at that.

The clincher on this whole thing is this… I have a tomato / ranch splotch on my boobie. I smell like garlic. I am tooting. And… I think the entire thing is funny as all hell. I can’t stop laughing, which only shakes up the beans. I think I’ll go have a Coca-Cola and giggle some more, just so I can get a good burp in there.

LMAO… don’t you wanna date me?

First of all I love garlic. Allow me to lick your thigh M'Lady.
Secondly, the only safe way to eat cherry tomatoes is whole but if you don't cover your mouth when you bite down you may spray the person sitting across from you. (personal experience talking)
Thirdly, If I was lucky enough to be dating you I would have no problem taking turns fanning the covers later

I am not dead yet

LMAO...You guys are so great.

tri - Clearly one of two things happened here... either you did not read the italics intro, or you did and kept reading having already decided not to date me. Either way, my mysterious glamor is now blown for you, I suppose. Suffice it to say, I'm glad you think it's normal, and hell yes it was fun.

bardic - I know the cherry tomato rule, but these were BIG cherry tomatoes, no eating them in one bite.

no I don't want to date you. I'm a failure at blogging, dancing, singing in the shower, and discerning bad dis-claimers not to mention I hate tomatoes. As for your attitude...I love it and want to say thks...

Given the fact that YOU think what happened was funny, and you didn't throw a "hissy-rectomy" over it, then you're darn right, if I was single & lived closer, I would like to date you !!! If for no other reason than the fact that we'd have lots of fun getting thrown out of places for acting nutty, and laughing like idiots at our own antics !!! CABO-STOMPIN' ON YOUR 'MATERS-ABLO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ever have dinner at Anna's (lesbian) Pasta?

I suggest starting with the tomato & mozzarella with fresh basil/olive oil//balsamic vinegar; you'll get the garlic bread with it, of course.

Then get the Gorgonzola linguines w/sun-dried tomato & brocolli, with one of their hearty reds served in little drinking glasses.

Damn that sounds good, and no, I haven't. Why is their pasta lesbian?
