A new great unknown line

It has been a while since I published a great unknown line. Last Saturday, my wife and I went to the birthday dinner party of one of her friends. I bloggged about it in French recently. I liked the people there, but was tired and not feeling like partying. As I mentioned in my post in French, I am not in my twenties anymore and I could feel it. It was a pseudo Japanese restaurant that turned into a club or quasi-club after 9. The food was okay, but I don't like those iffy concepts, trying to make a restaurant feel young and hip and funky. So halfway through dinner, at 9 o'clock (9 o'clock!), the music became very loud and thy dim the lights to the point where it was borderline pitch black. My front seat neighbour joked that it was now more a disco than a restaurant and impossible to talk without shouting. Then I said, looking at my plate:

"And I like to see what I eat."

It made him laugh. If I ever write a review of the place, I will place this line somewhere. Sure, it is not nearly as intelligent as the last great unknown line that my Italian friend came up with., but it is a neat little efficient line.

And how can you tell if there is a fly in your soup in the dark?...You: Waiter there's a fly in my soup. Waiter: Really sir? I can't see one... :-)
