Who Will Be There?

Some of my favorite episodes in India are the ones that involve odd english phrasing. One day at lunch Matt wanted to order a veggie sandwich but was unsure of which veggies the sandwich would contain. Upon asking, the server responded with, "Tomato will be there... cucumber will be there... and carrot will be there." All with a pleasant smile and a wobble of the head. It was as if he was listing off a guest list.

It's the small things in life.


  1. That's awesome! I am going to start coaching my staff on telling guests in the restaurant when they ask what is in the feature soup "butternut squash will be there, smoked aged cheddar will be there, caramalised apples will be there, scallions will be there and candied pecans will be there." mmmm

  2. ..onion will be there.
