My cosmetology instructor recently asked me to be the student representative on the Cosmetology Program's Advisory Board at my local Technical School. I, of course, accepted both because I can recognize an honor when one is bestowed upon me and because I knew I could use the honor as an excuse to get a substitute for my classes during the Advisory Board meetings.
So, today was the first meeting, and, really, the only thing worth mentioning about the meeting was the lunch that they served. At first glance, it looked like a really nice taco salad with the fried shell-bowl and everything. There was chicken on top (yuck!) but my plan was to work around it because otherwise the salad looked really yummy with nice, dark green lettuce, black beans, onions, olives, sour cream, salsa, and jalapenos. (yeah, not vegan, I know, but seriously tasty looking!)
I was particularly impressed because this was clearly the kind of situation where "lunch will be provided" means something pretty inedible. Well, guess what? It WAS inedible. When I took the first bite, I was, like--what the hell? There was definitely a taste that didn't taste right. When I took my second (and last) bite, I realized that the chicken on top of my taco salad was barbequed chicken.
The very weirdest part was that you couldn't SEE that the chicken was barbequed--like maybe (or probably) someone had rinsed the barbeque sauce off the chicken before slicing it up and tossing it on top of the taco salad. But the barbeque flavor permeated the entire salad--like the wet from the rinsed chicken had gotten in all the lettuce and been stirred around or something.
Sooooo weird and sooooo gross!
Your dishes okay?
