Its A Small, Small World.

The oldest decided he wanted a low key 12th birthday party.

Just something simple with the grandparents at the Chinese restaurant

When we pulled up front, the 7 yr old says: “Here we are! The Chinese Buffet!” (pronouncing it Buff-et)

Correcting him, I said, “It's pronounced 'Buff-eh'. It's French. On a Chinese restaurant.”

Then we go inside and realize that the Chinese restaurant has merged with the pizza buffet next door, knocking out the wall separating them.

At first, we were like, “THIS IS GREAT! ALL YOU CAN EAT OF EITHER OR BOTH! FOR THE SAME PRICE!”

Then I sat there for awhile.

Thinking.

Here's a Chinese restaurant.

Joining with an Italian restaurant.

With French words on the front.

Staffed by Mexican cooks.

It's like the Gosh Dang UN up in here.

I told the little Chinese lady working the register, “You guys should change the name of the place to “The REAL Melting Pot”.

But she said, “We no have pot here. You want drugs, you go somewhere else. Stupid druggies.”

Then I realized what was missing.

An English person to help with the language barrier.

Wow. Yeah...umm...

We have Bulgarian in office. He English okay. Is difficult for him sometime.

He's also our internal IT guy. I have a a fair amount of coding knowledge, so I asked if we could look at a plug-in file he'd built. He hesitated, but opened it. The coding structure was universal, but the language was Bulgarian. We had a laugh. And then I realized he just coded himself a sure thing that he'll have a job here until he wants to leave. I'm thinking I should start coding in French.

As long as they still have the all-you-can-eat crab legs I don't need a translator. I need a body guard for every time they bring out a new tray.

To push everyone else out of the way! (-:

That has got to be a first. Never heard of such a combination before. However, the English speaking part? Yeah, plenty of that everywhere.
