CSI Salad Bar

The Scene: A crowded salad bar downtown on a wet Thursday lunch hour

The Perp: A stodgy "person" of indeterminate sex

The Crime: Holding up the whole goddam line by inspecting each spinach leaf, every individual pea, every solitary carrot slice before making a choice. Forcing a respectable middle aged civil servant to refrain from screaming "It's a piece of broccoli, not a religious conviction. Move it." Aggravated aggravation.

The Verdict: Justifiable homicide.


  1. um, people arent supposed to eat from those salad bars...ewwhhhh

  4. I, personally, would have paid $$$ to see you NOT refrain. Salad Bar Smack down!!!

  5. Oh snap, I think you and I are officially having our periods on the same day now.

  6. e-
    Only if you were there to get my back in case the smack down went wrong.

    it was inevitable.

  7. YES! BRENDA! I love you a little more for quoting that. She had a christmas party recently- you must see the video.

    "I'm a saucy boozehound. Yes, my ladyhamper is dirty!"

  8. darling, I might have known you would recognize the Dickson. And my favorite line in the whole Christmas spectacular is "My lady hamper..." I mutter it under my breath in dull meetings from time to time.

  9. Is that his/her/its remains there in the center?
    I do hope so.

  10. The does sort of look like him/her/it. How very perceptive of you.
