Taco Town! And other restaurant news.

While I don't want this blog to turn into just a "share YouTube videos" blog, I found the following SNL spoof so funny that I had to embed it here.

On a personal note, while I was eating dinner at Pei Wei tonight, which is just around the corner from where I live, I happened to sit next to a cop on his meal break. He was having a conversation with a table of four people also seated near me. Soon after I sat down, somebody at the table asked the cop this:

"I have this burning question I've been wanting to ask. If you have a concealed weapons permit, in what circumstances are you allowed to legally shoot someone without being arrested or charged with murder?"

I busted up laughing. Couldn't help myself. That definitely isn't a question you hear asked every day, especially of a cop.

The police officer's diplomatic reply was that it was basically up to the grand jury whether they chose to indict you or not, but if someone was invading your home, people USUALLY weren't indicted.

Shortly after this exchange, the cop's food arrived, and my food arrived, and the conversation dwindled. But it did put me in a good mood for the rest of my meal.

You overhear snippets of conversation, and sometimes you really wonder about what the backstory is...

...other times you pray you don't get caught up in it!

Makes you wonder what their plans for the rest of the evening were...

Thimbelle - I agree, I kind of wondered what the guy doing the asking had going on as far as personal life issues. I did survive my walk home uneventfully, however.
