My friends came over to my place few days back. Hyper as we are, we decided to go out for lunch. We made up our minds to go to G.K. 1, M-Block market. My mom called for a taxi to take us there. Her reason………well, it made sense : the heat-stroke-inducing conditions outside. My car had gone for repairs the 4th time in 2 months………….I decided not to try my luck with it, i.e. I didn’t want to wait for it to come back & then take us out. So anyway, we sat in a taxi(which consistently ran at an irritatingly slow speed) & headed out in the heat.
We reached the market & went to Pizza Hut. Its the only restaurant left in that market. First, we were told to wait for 15-20 minutes. We waited. Then, we were given a table between two other tables squished together. Oh well………… We waited for someone to get the menu cards………..we waited in vain. Some time later, a girl came up to us & happily asked us what we would like to order. We just about stopped ourselves from strangling her. Its not a good idea to ask 3 extremely hungry girls ‘what they would like to order’ when they haven’t even looked at the menu card. Anyway, we somehow kept our cool & told her that we hadn’t had the good luck to see the menu yet. She gave a small laugh & said,”Oh! You haven’t got hte menu yet! Hee hee”. I didn’t know whether I was supposed to laugh or scream. She (thankfully) had brains enough to get the elusive menu card now. We quickly chose dishes & called our waitress to place our order. She came. We clearly told her our order. She got extremely confused over our order of two lemon iced teas & one peach iced tea. My friend who wanted the peach iced tea ultimately changed it to a lemon iced tea. Our darling waitress thankfully got that. Now the wait for the food………
Our drinks came quick enough. After some time I asked for our main order. We were obliged & sent the garlic bread & my caesar salad(I so love it). My friends ate through the three pieces of garlic bread & then stared at me eating. The rest of our food was still not visible. I called Her Majesty & asked her for the rest of the food. First she said,” Huh?”. Then I said, ” Could you please make it faster?”.
“Huh? You want your order altogether?”. I couldn’t believe she had atlast understood. I sighed in relief. Believe me when I tell you what she said next…………”OK I’ll get it together. Can I take the salad back then?”. I gaped…………I couldn’t help it! She wanted my half-eaten salad back so that she could get our order ‘altogether’!! I somehow composed myself & told her to let the salad be & get the rest of the food. She said, “Huh? Oh! hee hee…..”
My friends & I laughed so much that we forget our hunger………….
Atlast when we had finished eating, we started shopping. All the girly stuff……….let me not bore you. :D
We came back home & tried out the several nail paints we had bought. We tried out the slippers we bought & then clicked pictures…………….a complete ‘Girls Day Out’
