So, as a young girl, whenever I went out to dinner with the family, my parents always ordered soup in the following manner:
“One sweetcorn/ burnt garlic/ tomato soup, and please divide it into two.”
For them, the reason was that the quantity had been unreal and too much for one person, but I noticed something else. The “into two” came out to be two full bowls of soup! Which was then devoured by six people, of course. ^_^
From this experience, Peach and I have vowed to never order two separate dishes/ beverages/ appetizers whenever we go out to eat! Plebs need to bank on every opportunity they can get, after all!
