What kind of dip would go with these chips?

You're not supposed to go grocery shopping when you're hungry because you'll buy more food than you need or really want.

Well, I should not grocery shop when I'm tired, either.

Yesterday, I passed a new chips display with bright colors boasting "BLOOD! INTESTINES!"

But, after a second glance I realized what it actually read:  "BOLD!  INTENSE!  flavor"

I suppose on the upside that didn't make you buy chips you didn't really need. Unless you really needed chips in which case boo.

At a restaurant with a heavily accented waiter I thought he said I ordered Pot of Blood. Not knowing all the dishes offered there I wanted to make sure he understood that's not what I want. I slowly pronounced "Not Pot of Blood. I want POT OF GOLD."

My husband looked at me horrified. The waiter repeated Pot of Gold, I confirmed it and everything went back to normal. Except my husbands face. He was turning red from embarrassment.

Me: What?

Hubby: Why did you do that? That was so rude.

Me: He said I ordered Pot of Blood. I don't even remember seeing that anywhere on the menu. Didn't want to get something funky.

Hubby: No, he said Pot of Gold the first time.

Then my face turned red.

On the bright side, at least you didn't say Blood and Intestines out loud to a total stranger who had the opportunity to do what ever he wants to your food. :/

Some of the chips out there, Blood and Intestines is accurate anyway...
