The one where we laugh our asses off # 43

Let me just preface this continuing saga with a kvetch or two. I have the WORST caffeine headache. I feel like my head is about to explode. Plus, the heartburn. Oy vey! Between the big bowl of chili I ate for dinner, and the 4 pots of coffee I've had to drink over the past 20 or so hours, I'm not feeling all that great.

The Girl fell asleep about an hour ago, the Boy just laid down in my bed to sleep. He's tired. His posts are bizarre. He's bizarre. But he's sure my kid. Verbose and a great writer, that one. But does he do his homework? NO he does not! Urgh!

Hey folks... I need comments to keep awake. And I need sponsors to help me reach my goal. So please, a comment or two? And please sponsor me. Purty pleeze...

OK, back to Venice. After our day trip to Torcello, Dawn and I went out to eat at a very fancy restaurant in Venice. We dressed up, we put on jewelry and perfume, and off we went to this amazing restaurant recommended by many people. It was very expensive, so we ordered from the tourist menu. I've never done that before, but Dawn was sort of insistent and so I agreed. Shalom b'byit and all that.

The appetizer were the most delicious fried calamari. Little tiny squid all crispy and golden. To die for. I'd never eaten calamari before, coming from a Kosher background, but when in Venice, do as the Venetians do, right? I can't recall what the next course was, but it was either a fish dish or meat, followed by pasta and salad.

The waiter we had was very funny and kept teasing us about the delicious dessert on the tourist menu. He had us drooling the way he described it as being so special, so unique, so spectacular. He was obviously pulling our collective legs, but we had no clue what was to come. We plowed through our dinner, enjoying it, but I kept thinking that we'd be getting much better food had we ordered al la carte. Whatever.

By the time the waiter had cleared off the table and was ready to present this spectacular dessert, we were laughing our asses off at how funny he was, and what a delightful waiter he was. We were getting along like peas and carrots.

And then he brought out our spectacular dessert.

We laughed so hard that I really thought I'd pee my pants right in the restaurant. He was laughing so hard he had tears in his eyes. It was hilarious. Hysterical.

So what was this special dessert?

Fudgesicles. Honestly. In Italy, the land of gelato. Fudgesicles.
