SPREAD THE INFO FOR UNEMPLOYED FELONS.

Okay so I know the other day I posted about a funny moment I remembered with A Tom but I wasn’t able to type the moment up because I was at work! For the meal we had a few courses of basic Western dishes, and most of the members didn’t know what to do. BJoo was very concerned with humus and did not like it, and A Tom mostly ate the porkbelly and asparagus off the serving plate. Anyway, when he moved over and sat and started taking to us, I can’t remember exactly how but we got on the topic of food and he kind of made a face. I asked him what was wrong and the manager laughed. 

“I don’t like Western food..” 

“You don’t?” I asked, “Well, what’s your favorite type of food?”

He thought for a moment. “…Asian food.”

“Okay…what kinda of Asian food?”

He grinned. “Korean.”

“A Tom, what kind–”

All of it.”

A Tom really likes food, you guys.
