Hahaha, that makes me think of one of the last times, actually the very last time I went to a certain restaurant in Bangalore. I'm not going to name it because everyone in Bangalore loves it but when I'm done with this story you'll be disgusted and not want to go. That's not my goal, I love the restaurant and their deaf/blind waiters. They're not really deaf and blind. They just pretend. They like to see people jumping in their seats and waving their arms around like maniacs just for a bottle of Sprite. Remember that Victoria? Hahah. Good times. Anyway! We went one of the nights of the India conference... We're sitting at one of the tables along the little garden area when out of the corner of my eye I see something very large move behind this old little grill. I assumed it was a cat or maybe dog and resumed eating my wonderful meal. But THEN I saw a very long, very hairless, very thin tail! I'm serious! This... rat looking creature was as long as my dog, Eagle and probably three times wider! No joke! Apparently they call them "bandigoats" in India. Not sure where the name came from but pretty much they're super huge, super slow, super scary rats. And this restaurant had one LIVING in their garden, next to the kitchen. Hahaha, and here's the conversation we had with the waiter who pretends to be deaf and blind for a little bit and also knows our whole order.
My mom and I: There's a huge ginormous rat in the bushes!!!!
Waiter: *is not very impressed* Oh yes.
My mom and I: He's so big!
Waiter:*still not impressed* Oh yes, he is a bandigote(bandigoat?)
My mom and I: How did he get so big?
Waiter: Eating steak only!
My mom and I: *stare in disbelief*
Hm. I miss that place. They had yummy steak and bomb chicken schnitzels.
Still trying to figure out how to get to Prescott conference. If you have any ideas, email me.
