Miles experiments on the waitstaff
Miles and I went to Wagamama for dinner tonight (Keith is at Woods Hole with the rest of the Fellows). The waiters write numbers on your placemats, and there is no explanation given. We wondered: were those numbers our orders?...our rating as customers?...our estimated IQ's? Miles decided it would be interesting to turn the placemats over so the numbers were not visible and see if anything happened. I was surprised when it actually threw some of the waitstaff off a bit. But then they started marking on our placemat again. Another reminder of how kids are natural testers, every boundary or system is just something else to experiment with.
As far as the food goes, the curry and the raw salad were great. The yakiudon had too many competing spices/flavors and was not very tasty.
