:: Server Stories: Easy Money ::
We were sitting around eating lunch before work started. A few of the guys had sushi delivered. I ate a late lunch so I just had a seaweed salad. One of the busboys walked by and one Lou ask him, "hey, wanna make $20?"

"Yeah man, how?"

"Eat this ball of wasabi."

"Oh hell no man. Tú loco en la cabeza, cabrón."

I looked over. Lou doesn't like anything spicy, and he left his little ball of wasabi intact. I, on the other hand, love spicy food (although wasabi isn't your traditional type of "spicy").

"Hey Lou. I'll do it."


"Yeah, got the twenty dollars?"

"Naw man, you like spicy shit. You gotta eat two."

He reached into his other empty tray and grabbed the other mound of wasabi and made a ball almost the size of a quarter. He thought I'd back down. He clearly doesn't know me that well.

"That's nothing. Got the money?"

"It's right here."

"Okay then."

I grab the ball of wasabi and pop it in my mouth and start chewing. It was okay for a moment and all of a sudden... *COUGH* *COUGH* *sniff* Oh man this royally sucks.

My eyes started to water and my sinuses opened up to the point where I could actually see the inside of my nostrils. Lucky for me, I ate it quickly so the worst of it lasted only about 2-3 seconds. I swallow it, open my mouth and stick my tongue out like I'm on "Fear Factor."

"Damn dude, you're a crazy motherfucker." He hands me two tens and high fives me. "You are fucking crazy. I love that about you."

I smile and shake it off. "I've eaten weirder stuff than this."

Then again, he's fairly new so there's no way he could have known that.
