Living the Examined Life

Cook/Proprietor (handing menu to passerby): "Here you are sir."

Possible Customer (noticing that the menu has twelve items on it): "So, I'd have to eat here a dozen times?"

Cook/Proprietor (confused): "Excuse me?"

Possible Customer: "There are twelve items on your menu; it would take me a dozen times to try them all."

Cook/Proprietor: "You could, or some people just stick to one thing that they like. Like this young man (indicating me), he just gets the falafel."

Me: (Feeling a little awkward at being singled out) "The falafel is quite good."

Possible Customer (To himself as he walks away): "But if I just ate the same thing, how would I know that I actually liked it?"
