RE: Murder on the Capsaicin Express
I guess it's my turn to share. While living in Atlanta, GA, a friend of mine from Macon came to visit. After a fun trip to the aquarium, we decided we were hungry; neither of us wanted fast food or standard chain-restaurant fare, so we wound up in a Mexican restaurant on the NE side of town. My first clue should've been when the waitress greeted us in Spanish. We managed to order in mangled Spanish, and when the food arrived, there was a roasted jalapeno on my plate. So, not thinking anything of it, I bit in....!!!!!! I have eaten jalapenos before, but this one was...special....AND I have an interesting reaction to such heat: I turn RED. And sweat. And get the watery eyes & nose (note to self: not a good impression for a date). I had the waitress worried! Then...despite my obvious service as a warning to others, my friend decided she had to try it to. Yep, she learns the hard way too. Between gasping for air, laughing, and ordering mas cervesa, it turned into a bonding ritual. Now whenever we get together, there are always jokes about the "Jalapeno Incident". (I've also scared the waitress at my local Thai restaurant here in D.C. when I've ordered the dish prepared spicy.)
