No mattah how many times I tell myself to try something different, unless I'm traveling, I tend not to. I guess it's cause most times than not every time I do, I either don't enjoy it or am disappointed by it somehow. And then of course it's always compared to da good old' stand-by dat I'd always get anyways.
Last night, Da Wife and I both got home late and was too tired to do any type of cooking and naturally decided to go back out and pick something up.
Da Wife: I don't feel like cooking, can you pick something up?
BL: Surah. Wat you like?
Da Wife: I don't care. What do you want?
Da Wife: What do you feel like eating?
BL: (same conversation all da time so I changed dis up) You wanna eat Daiichi?
Da Wife: No.
BL: (rolling my eyes big time! I thought she said she didn't care??) Ok 'den.... I feel like Subways but I know you no like.... wat about L&L?
Da Wife: Ok. (picking up da phone to call in) What do you want from there?
BL: Same thing.
It's always da same places: L&L, Subways or Daiichi with McDonald's always being a fallback choice. Then there are da times we feel for something just a bit different and will venture to Kapiolani Coffee Shop, Chun Wah Kam or Panda's. Da Wife is one dat no like da kine same thing all da time so she choose something different most times but no mattah wat place we choose, it's always da same for me no mattah wat.
L&L - it's da chicken katsu curry, all brown rice, curry all ovah.
Subways - watevah is da $6 footlong sub of da month on honey oat, all da veggies extra tomatoes, pepperjack cheese, no oil/vinegar, salt and peppah.
Daiichi - combo mini miso udon, curry rice and chicken katsu.
McDonald's - It's a coin flip for either da grilled chicken or da angus deluxe sandwich, no mayo with a diet coke add two lemons.
Kapiolani Coffee Shop - I no get nothing cause they charge too much and give too little but I only order da chop steak and I really dunno why cause da meat is tough and fo' some reason I always get da chopped fat instead of meat. (Wassup Wit Dat!)
Chun Wah Kam - hea's da only place I may try something different but it's only cause they run out of stuff but da first choice is always half chow fun/half chow mein, garlic chicken and spicy eggplant.
Panda's - almost da same thing half chow fun/half chow mein, orange chicken and spicy eggplant.
No mattah wat da place and no mattah how many times I've tried different things, I always end back to da same thing. Da funniest WWD! moment is wen you'd stand in front of da menu staring and reading at all da choices, contemplating wat you like or wat you like try different, get to da cashier still glaring at da menu, stuttering "uh, uh" and then ordering wat you always order anyways.
Wassup Wit Dat!
Wat's your regulah fall back place for grind when you no like cook? Do you always get da same thing? Does your conversation with whomevah is picking up da grindz da same - "Yeah, just get me da same thing" or "You know wat I always get." Have you tried to order something different or is it too much of a shock? If you evah ventured out of your comfort zone, have you been disappointed or have you been converted to a "new" choice?
