hot wings!

Yesterday, my friend and I went out to Buffalo's for lunch. They've always had some pretty good wings. I was very, very happy with the wings I had yesterday.

I really enjoy spicy food. Whenever I get wings, I always end up ordering the hottest wings that are offered. At Buffalo's, that's what they call "extra extra hot." I'm pretty used to their wings and have gotten in the habit of bringing my own hot sauce (Da Bomb) with me to add to the wings to spice them up a little more. When I left for work yesterday, I wasn't planning on going to Buffalo's for lunch, so I didn't have my sauce with me.

The waitress came by to take our order:

Greg: I'll have 15 wings: half jamacian jerk, half extra extra hot.
Waitress: You mean the hottest we have?
Greg: Yes, please.
Waitress: You've had them before, right? You know how hot they are.
Greg: Yes. Thanks for asking. I've had them before and actually find them to be a little weak.
Waitress: OK. Just wanted to make sure. Some people don't know what they're getting into when they order that. You find it weak? Where are you from?
Greg: Around here.
Waitress: Wow. I would have thought New Mexico or something.

Typically, the extra extra hot is a good level of spicy for me. Yesterday, I was in for something special.
