Had dinner with a friend Monday evening. As we entered the Thai restaurant, he jokingly told the waiter it was my birthday. I told the waiter "no, it's not."
I thought that was that, but after the meal the waiter brought over a scoop of coconut ice cream and fried plantains. Clearly, he hadn't believed me and it was too late to protest. Two waiters and the patrons at the surrounding tables sang happy birthday, and I blew out the candle.
I'd never had a fraudulent dessert before, but it turns out, it was pretty good!
