The Instantaneous Rigatoni Factor: Celebrity Edition

I was sitting in a local Italian restaurant the other day.

Mind you, I wasn’t just sitting. I was eating some garlic bread, pushing my fork around in what used to be a huge plate of lasagna, and eavesdropping.

Yes, I was being bad.

“I ordered rigatoni,” he said. “This is penne. And I don’t like penne.”

“I’m sorry, sir,” the waitress shot back. “But you said penne. I have it written down right here. Look.”
