On Simple Concepts


I was in a restaurant with my parents the other day. As usual, my mom ordered a glass of wine and some ice. The wine came, and she had to remind the waiter about the ice. Eventually the ice arrived, in a bowl, served on a heated plate... I don't think this needs any more comment.

On the topic of restaurants, if you ever want to really confuse the waiter, order two drinks. At least half the waiters I've tried it on forgot one of the drinks. The probability of remembering the second drink seems to decrease with increasing table size, and increase with the increasing price of a fillet steak. Not that that information has any use...
