Chris and I went out to dinner recently at a not un-nice place. I got the specialty (supposedly)* which was a dish called Seafood Melissa. Pan fried fish, crab cakes, crabmeat stuffed shrimp, scallops- you get the point. It was good while eating it, but the rest of the night was filled with gassy trips to the bathroom. For both of us. Including Chris, who had approximately 1 bite of Seafood Melissa.
Since then, we have referred to the grossness that follows over eating or over indulging as some form of Seafood Melissa. e.g.: “Ugh I think they gave me Seafood Melissa by accident” or “I got Seafood Melissa-d.”
All of this is to say….I am in a vulnerable state of Seafood Melissa right now.
*the worst possible thing a waitress could do when you ask her to recommend her favorite dish or the most popular item on the menu is to list 1/2 to 3/4 of the menu. No street cred, homegirl.
It’s probably awful, and I am sorry :/
Pretty sure I wrote that on a birthday card when I was 5.
