I think I was at a Chili's
or some chain restaurant
with a friend/co-worker/cool-guy back when I was working for this company
where we went out to dinner
every single night
(we were consultants
--that's what you do). We were sitting there and I really wanted a beer
. So the waitress
brings us some beer
s in these big glass
es and I said, "I'll be damned if this glass isn't as big as a fishtank
!" And then she tells us that they put Swedish fish
in some of their margaritas
and points to the Chili's margarita menu thingy. And I was like "THAT ROCKS! I WANT A FISH TOO!" So she brought us over a plate of Swedish fish
which I promptly dropped into my glass
. The fish
, that is. The plate
wouldn't fit in my glass
. She was like 19 or something. My co-worker got her phone number.
Despite not getting a phone number, I discovered the following things during that experience:
- Swedish fish get very very hard and tough to chew when placed in a cold beer for a prolonged period of time.
- Swedish fish taste much better basted in beer.
- Beer tastes better with little Swedish fish.
- No one gets mad at you for putting Swedish fish in your beer because Swedish fish aren't alive. They're just candy fish.
