As a testament to her great Spanish language skills, Vodka has been mulling one thing over for the majority of her trek to Suenos: why would anyone name their restaurant "Tired"?!
Upon Ginger's arrival, Vodka poses her question. Ginger (who usually suffers from similar Spanish-induced confusion), tells her that the word actually means "Dreams." So much for six years worth of Spanish instruction.
|Hola, Me Llamo Estupida|
|And We'd Really Like to Know the Last Time Mr. Waxman's Establishment Has Been Called "That Dumb Chicken Place"|
|A Bar Expansion Would Have Been a More Suitable Architectural Choice|
|Plus, this Glassware Is Boring. Just Sayin'|
"We'll ask Danny Zuko which salsa is the least spicy for the enchiladas," Ginger whispers to Vodka.
"How did you learn his last name?!" our friend interjects, completely incredulous. We stare at her blankly.
"Danny Zuko?" we repeat.
"Yeah, how do you already know his name?!"
"IT'S FROM GREASE." By this point, Danny himself is hovering over us, so we shut up about our friend's lack of "Greased Lightning" knowledge.
|And to His Credit, Danny Zuko Does Not Comment About How Our Chips Have Gone from This...|
|...to This in Five Minutes Flat|
"How do you just up and join the CIA?! It's not a club!" Ginger retorts.
"He did not literally join the CIA," our friend explains gently. Apparently, all of the comic memoirs we're reading for book club are doing nothing for our ability to understand sarcasm tonight.
|The Chips Must Be Impacting the Cynical Sides of Our Brains|
|One Little, Two Little, Three Little Enchiladas|
|From This Angle, They Have the Decided Look of Overgrown Chicken Nuggets|
|Please, Sir, We'd Like Some More Sauce|
"Three," Ginger confirms our star rating, and we plow through the rest of the dish with neither enthusiasm nor disgust.
|Instead, We Resort to Our Normal Attitude: Apathy|
|Now If This Had Been a Pierogie, We'd Have Another Story on Our Hands|
|Hey Suenos, Ever Hear of Cooking Things to Order?|
|Thus Rendering the Triplet Enchilada Picture Useless|
|That's an Appealingly Shaped Avocado You've Got There....|
|Never a Good Sign When the Free Dish is The Best Offering|
