So, I am sure everyone is familiar with the idea that one should not order the lasagna at Denny's. It's similar to the concept of staying away from the beef jerky in a vending machine. Sometimes, one is just setting themselves up for failure.
You are probably wondering where I am going with this rather off subject rant, and to tell you the truth, I am too. All I can say is every time I wear the jacket pictured in the above photos I feel like some kind of hoity-toity head chef and I gotta state, "I like it."
Maybe it was the jacket that made me brave enough to order the salmon at my boyfriend's favorite steakhouse, or maybe it was just my general dislike of steak and western themed restaurants. Either way, I took the "plunge" and ordered the seafood at an establishment where the most asked question of the night was, "where's the beef?" I am pleased to report that my jacket did not steer me wrong. My meal of grilled salmon, baked potato, and side garden salad was absolutely delicious!
Remember, next time you find yourself in an environment that may not be in your comfort zone, stay confident. Who cares if you have no idea which twangy song is playing over the restaurant speakers. It doesn't matter if you are not wearing the, apparently mandatory, rhinestone studded shirt. For your own sanity, do not make eye contact with the line dancing waitresses and above all else, no matter what, do not let these waitresses pressure you into adding the bacon bits on your salad or potato because, "after all, you are having the fish."
Don't get me wrong atmosphere aside, my meal was absolutely delightful. Could it be that it's not just that weird guy in the break room at work that gets the vending machine beef jerky? Is it possible that F5 could be my new favorite fifteen minute afternoon snack? I doubt it, but maybe if they offered a tuna option...
