It's a texture thing

I'm at Moe's, ordering a chicken soft taco.

Him: Cheese?
Me: Just a tiny, tiny pinch. Tiny bit.
He sprinkles on a little bit of cheese and looks up: More?
Me: Nope, that's perfect, thank you.

He looks at me like, you are such a weirdo, what is the point of even PUTTING cheese on your taco if that's all you're going to have?

Him: Lettuce? Tomato?
Me: Nope, that's great, thank you.
Him, folding up the taco: Anything else?
Me: Yeah ... can I get a side of queso?

He looks at me like, OK, now you really ARE a weirdo.

Him: You know that queso is cheese, right?
Me: I know, I know.
Him: You know that's a little unusual, right?
Me: What can I say, I'm one big contradiction.
Him: Keeps them guessing, huh?

Ohhhh, yes. Swishy, woman of mystery.

ha ha ha! I loved the chips and queso from Chili's. But that's really chili and cheese mixed together. YUM!

you crack me up. I get the same look when i'm at Izzo's (our local version of Moe's) ordering my burrito in a bowl. I'm always like "just a little cheese" and they are like, "seriously?"

Love his come-back! The situation is pretty funny though.

Huh. So Moe's is a chain. Interesting. We have one nearby tha opened up last year but I've yet to go. Until I look up the nutritional information and decide I can't bear to ingest that much sodium in one sitting :) I love the confusing people. If it makes you feel any better, I can NEVER order off the menu. I always have to tweak.

OH! I had a real word for verificatin -- cable. Huh.

Hey, I completely understand why. Queso is SO much better than cheese, and it doesn't fall all over the place, either.

queso and cheese don't go into the same category. queso is a dip...cheese is a topping. unless you put the queso on fries, then i guess it's a topping too...but still, two totally different things. i mean, one is a solid and one is almost a liquid. so, yeah...it's like they're not even in the same food group.

see, I'm on your side, Swishy!
