Um, Mom?

So, I had the following e-mail exchange with my 60-something year-old mother on Facebook on Monday. She was writing from College Station.

MOM:

Mur-

[My friends] and I went to the Adult Bookstore Friday. We had a great time. I told them you worked on a murder there. They were impressed.

MY REPLY:

Um, that's great, Mom. I won't ask why you were there.

MOM:

Oh, it is a great new Mexican restaurant now. We will have to go the next time you are in Bryan.


Good to know.

Some prefer munching on a well prepared taco; others go for the whole enchilada. Either way you just can't beat a salty Margarita.

It's a good restaurant as well, worth checking out the next time you're in aggieland.

"The Adult Bookstore" is a great name for a restaurant, in the same vein as "The French Laundry."

Who Knew said...

I can't believe Mark Bennett is familiar with Napa's French Laundry cuisine, let alone be able to get reservations.
Somehow elegant French tapas fare is not what I imagine Bennett to appreciate.

Who knew?

Then your deficit of information about me is—or was—nearly complete.

Well, Murray, based on my training and experience, there happens to be a whole lot of symbolism in that exchange.

I'm glad its a Mexican restaurant now, I'd much rather people remember me as being killed in a Mexican restaurant then in an adult book store.

Big words make head hurt.
I don't even know what a French tapa is.
I just like the story.
Am I the only one who apprecitates the sexual joke here?
Except Just Sayin' gets it(:
Seriously, why be technical, and rude about a sexual joke.
They make the world go round(:
