I want what she's having

The most hilarious incident in my European trip - Our German associate takes us out to lunch and tells us politely, "I have ordered vegetarian food for you." I wonder how he would have felt if he had seen me polishing off a seafood platter - snails, winkels et al, the night before. The matter remains that when I ordered the platter I was told by the maitre'd, "Madame, it is all RAW." In truth, I did feel somewhat ashamed at not leaving even one tiny snail on the platter. The polite creature that I am, I smiled and enjoyed my gnocchi in all its potato goodness, but I'd rather have had the pork medallions every one else was having.
