Some Things



I’m on Dragon Air flight 297 into Hanoi.  The very proper and courteous flight attendant smiles at me saying, “We are pleased to offer you breakfast on our flight this morning.  We have a choice of a Chinese breakfast which includes…”  At this point she hesitates as a troubled look comes over her face and continues, “some things”.  Then, her cheery smile returning, adds “or we have omelet with sausage”.

Hmm. Hard choice.  I’m adventuresome but as that wise sage Dirty Harry once observed, “A man’s got to know his limitations”. Anthony Bourdain I’m not.  I’ll pass on the ‘some things’ and go with the omelet.
