Is Cultural Diversity on the Menu?
“Here,” insisted my wife as we dined at an upscale restaurant, “try the escargot a la carte. It’s delicious!”
“No thanks,” I resisted. “It’s late and I’m getting full.”
“Oh,” she shot back, “you just refuse to try anything if it doesn’t ‘sound’ American. What DO you have against cultural diversity anyways?”
For a moment I feared she might be right. But then I recalled what I ate earlier in the day and told her: “I had French toast for breakfast, Italian bread for lunch, followed by a German chocolate cake for dessert. That’s about all the cultural diversity I can take for one day.
