Remember a long time ago when I posted about the overzealous Panda Express Lady? Well, she has not been at the Panda Express in several months. I don’t know what happened to her, because seriously – why would I? But Dame and I went to Panda today, and I realized that I actually miss her. The Panda people there now aren’t nearly as excited to see me. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that they’re NOT excited to see me.
You know what I hate? I hate that the way our Panda is set up, you order your food at one end of an assembly line type of counter, and you get your food pretty much right at that same end that you order, but then what happens is that you have to wait forEVER for all the people ahead of you to make it down the line to the cash register. And then by the time you pay, your food is not all that hot and steamy anymore.
Mr. Mock will attest that I am totally quirky about eating hot food. It’s one of the reasons that I’m such a fast eater (which I know is bad for you). It’s because I enjoy food most when it’s, as Mr. Mock would say, “Chernobyl Hot.” There are actually some foods that, when they cool even only slightly, I actually can no longer eat them. Mac and Cheese is the perfect example. If I don’t see steam rising from my Mac and Cheese, I will not eat it. It has to be PIPING.
Just a little Mockarena factoid I thought you might be interested in.
By the way, the cashier at Panda today? His name was Bambang. I am totally not making this up.
