Mr. C. Cow, due to the fact that I had to spend an entire day at a festival looking for a “food wand”, decided to treat me to a fancy dinner. I was slightly confused as to why he would take me out to a fancy restaurant instead of just using his new magical wand that produces food. Mr. C. said that it was the wands night off. I didn’t know that wands got nights off! I’m still leery that a stick with a blue string tied to it can even produce food out of thin air.
A lot of you are probably thinking that Mr. C. Cow’s idea of a fancy dinner would involve eating vegan tacos out of a food truck. While we both enjoy a good vegan taco truck that’s not his idea of taking someone to a fancy dinner. Fancy dinner, in his mind, must include nice table cloths, a full bar that makes old fashion cocktails, and real plates. None of those plastic things they try to pass off as a plate. Real, honest to cows, plates. I tend to agree with him on that. If you’re eating off of something paper or plastic then you are probably not at a fancy restaurant.
I bet you didn’t know this little fun fact about Mr. C. Cow and fancy dining. A couple of years ago he went to a class on dining manners. He felt he needed some help after he was kicked out of a restaurant for thinking the fake fruit bowl on the table was for licking. It’s also excessively hard for a cow to hold silverware. You try cutting into a lasagna when you have hoofs. See! Not too easy!
I’m, truly, impressed that Mr. C. took etiquette classes to improve his dining manners. He was so proud of himself that he has a certificate of completion hanging up in our kitchen back home. Because of these classes no one has kicked him out of a restaurant for licking non-lickable items. Mr. C. Cow has even stopped putting his hoofs on the table when he’s finished a meal. I’ve never put my feet on a dining table before. I’m too short and it is rude.
The meal was exquisite and the polite cow company was charming. I still don’t understand why a magical wand that can make food out of thin air gets a night off. Does it have a date? Needs to wash its, umm, bark? I’m still skeptical over a stick with a blue string tied to it being enchanted.
