Sometimes our plates are full, sometimes our order is wrong, sometimes what we want isn't on the menu. We can almost never send it back because the chef will come running out, dirty and bloodied apron hanging from his thick sweaty neck, butcher knife or maybe a cleaver in hand; so we are forced to accept what we have mistakenly ordered. Smile and say "Oh, this is fine. Can I get a cup of green tea?" Because we all know that green tea has antioxidants that help neutralize the free radicals running amuck inside and at you.
