Thank You, My Friends, for Being Smart-Alecs
I stole an idea from a fellow radio personality from Boston who asked his listeners what they always take with them when they go out to eat. When this guy asked the question on his radio show, he got all kinds of great responses. People generally replied with items like Italian seasoning, or some other local favorite particular to that area of the country.
I thought it was a pretty good question to start a discussion about how folks in Louisiana all carry their own seasonings when they travel or dine out. I just knew I'd get a ton of people naming Tony Chachere's or Zataran's. Well, I didn't get those answers. I got a bunch of smart-ass replies.
I'm not complaining about the situation. I like the fact that my friends and listeners are smart-alecs. I wouldn't have it any other way. I guess I could have done a plain, boring story about how everyone carries their Cajun seasoning when they go to certain restaurants, but I like your answers better.
Many people did reply with answers like Sweet'N Low or something, but most went straight for a punch line. See? That's what makes my job so much fun. Thanks for responding to my silly question and giving me entertaining answers!
What do you take when you go out to eat? Here are some of the off-the-wall answers I got to that question.
