Typical is this recent exchange I had with a waitress at a midtown restaurant:
“Do you know if the piecrust is made with lard?”
“I don’t think so but I’ll check.”
“Thanks. I can’t eat lard.”
My two cents
That’s pretty interesting and cool. I wish I were there at the restaurant overhearing that conversation. I would have loved to have seen the expression of the waitress after her hearing of Leviticus.
