Notes

l was in the dining room of my aunt Mary Ann's restaurant. “Yaaaaaa” my brother cried

“Papa John and Nonni Rita are here”. But little did we know that tonight would be a very

interesting night at my Pappa Johns 77th birthday.

“ Happy Birthday Pappa John” we all cried as he emerged from the crystal doorway. After that we all walked over to the table talking and laughing all the way. But no one but I noticed that my dad broke off from the group to talk to the waiter who quickly scurried away into the kitchen. And I didn’t think anything of it until later in the evening. As we sat done the waiter brought over the appetizer which surprise, surprise was chic peas. Chic peas are disgusting peeled peas that have been bathed in vinegar for the entire day only to be brought out in the nighttime hours of the restaurant. before anyone could eat the the waiter took our orders in which she already knew, we all had our regulars. Then she raced into the kitchen to collect the pre prepared meals. “ Heh Sam, have you ever had a chic pea” even though he knew the answer he asked anyway. “No” I answered slowly ”Well tonight's the night you try one” he replied gleefully as he put a few peas on my plate. Just before he made me try them the waiter came with our meals. “Dad” I replied” can I have my dinner first?”. “OK,” he said “but you're trying those peas”. “OK” I said as I dug into the succulent delight on my“Thump thump thump” I heard the soft padding of feet coming down the ha plate 3 cheese ravioli. It is the greatest ravioli the world will ever see in my opinion. with the three greatest cheeses in the world in it. Later as I finished the last ravioli he replied gleefully “Looks like you are trying them now “. “OK” I replied glumly as I dumped them into my mouth it suddenly felt like it was on fire. “AHHHHHHHH” I cried as I reached across the table and grabbed my water and soda and gulped them down. “AHHHHHHHH” I sighed as the fire in my mouth died down. Then as I looked across the table I saw all the smiling faces. Then I realized I had just been the but of a joke. When my dad was talking to the waiter in the beginning of the evening (who is a family friend) he must have asked for Mary ann’s special super spicy chic peas bathed in vinegar and hot pepper oil. And as we all finished our plates my dad added jokingly “ Want some more?”.

This is an instance that I still laugh about today. And know I have a question for you, do you want some more?
