The woman at the next table says to the waiter, “I’ll have the number 6 combo with the chile . . .”
She’s struggling with the next word, so the waiter says, “Relleno.”
“Right,” she says.
The waiter asks if she wants the regular chile or the spicy chile.
“Spicy,” she says.
I love Mexican food but chile rellenos are a little bit different. I’m not crazy about them. So I can see where he’s coming from when the husband asks her, “Are you sure you know what you’re ordering?”
“Number 6,” she says.
“I mean, do you know what a chile relleno is?”
When the food comes, she asks the waiter, “What am I eating again?”
