When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Mexico… well, I’ll leave that up to you after reading this story!
I found this story earlier today and I just had to share it with you. An old lady goes on vacation to Mexico and tries an uncommon delicacy, but can’t believe her ears when… well, I won’t reveal the ending, so make sure that you read the whole thing. I hope you’ll laugh as hard as I did!
Make sure to share this story to brighten a friend’s day!
An old lady from Texas was going on vacation to Mexico with her adult children. She arrived one day earlier than her sons, so she decided to spend her first day roaming around and taking in the sights. In the evening, she went to a fancy restaurant for dinner.
As she sat there sipping her tequila, she noticed that the couple at the table next to her were being served a beautifully garnished dish with two gigantic meatballs in the middle.
An unusual delicacy
When the waiter asks for her order, the lady inquired about the meatball dish.
The waiter replied, “Ah, Señora, you have excellent taste! We call those Cojones de Toro, bull’s testicles from the bull fight this morning. A real delicacy!”
The Texan woman said, “Well, what the heck, I’m feeling a bit adventurous. Bring me an order, please!”
The waiter replied, “I am so sorry, Señora. There is only one serving per day, because there is only one bull fight each morning. If you come early tomorrow and place your order, we will be sure to save you this delicacy.”
The next morning, the lady returned, placed her order, and that evening she was served the one and only special delicacy of the day.
She took a few bites, and marveled at how good it tasted. However, soon she noticed something about her food and called to the waiter.
She said to him, “These are delicious, give my compliments to the cook. Just one thing: I can’t help but notice that they are much, much smaller than the ones I saw you serve yesterday.”
The waiter shrugged his shoulders and replied, “Si, Señora. Sometimes, the bull wins.”
