Last night, my girlfriend took me to my favourite Ethiopian restaurant for a meal to celebrate my first day as an attending. We ordered one vegetarian platter and one meat platter, which is too much food for two people to eat, but not quite enough food to leave a good serving of leftovers. After my girlfriend had given up, while I was still trying to finish off every last tasty morsel, we had the following conversation.
Girlfriend: "You know...if you stop eating now, we could share a mint Oreo Blizzard for dessert."
Me (pausing while bringing a handful of food to my mouth): "What if I want to keep eating, but I also want to have a mint Oreo Blizzard for dessert?"
GF: "Well...you're an adult and you can make choices for yourself. My only request is that you not vomit in the car on the way home."
Me (reluctantly returning the handful of food to the plate): "You never let me have any fun."
