The other day I went to Larry’s Pizza, and I wondered if I should get a salad. Now, before you judge me, hear the rest of the story. I realize that the official Buffet o’ Blog stance on the salad bar at Larry’s Pizza is that it’s there just for decoration. I understand that and agree wholefartedly. But this was a unique visit to the restaurant.
Accompanying me on this pizza quest was my wife, her mom, and her sister. Predictably, they all got a salad to go with their all-you-can-eat pizza. (Ironically, it’s impossible to eat all-you-can-eat pizza if you also eat a salad, since you’re wasting calories on greenery.) Anyway, I am trying to lose weight (which is why I intentionally limit my trips there). Also to consider is that it’s important to try to make a good impression on the in-laws. Even though they know me by now, I still may be judged for what I do and don’t do, which can make life more complicated.
So now you understand my dilemma. Obviously I don’t want to get a salad, and I especially don’t want to eat one there. (I don’t know if their salad bar is good or not — I honestly have never looked at it closely. All I see there is pizza!) Of course my options were to either get a salad or not, but there are potentially even more options. So I figured I’d put out a poll where you can vote on what I should’ve done. I’m just curious what the general populace thinks on such issues.
Your vote is anonymous, and after you vote it will show you what the current tally is.
