I was at a vietnamese restaurant. I ordered Pho (a noodle soup). Previously, I had had a nightmarish experience with cilantro IN my soup!! Can you imagine?
This time, I specifically asked the waitress to NOT include ANY cilantro.
She came back with my soup, seemingly cilantro-free, but I could still TASTE it, even if I couldn't see it.
Seeing my confusion, the waitress told me that the chef had put in some cilantro at first, but upon seeing my instructions, took it immediately out.
But it was too late for me! The disgustingness of the cilantro had INFUSED into my soup!
NOO! I cried.
(I didn't really, but I was crying inside).
It was the worst day.
