Someone Just Called Me A Mensch
I was worried until I "Googled" the term-definition.

Whew! The last time I heard that term, I paid for a Getfile Fish Pizza in NYC for a co-worker and I hate fish1

I thought it meant something different when I ordered that fish Pizza for a co-worker I couldn't eat years ago.

That was before the Internet and I know better now.

I'sd still like to sutff that Pizza up his a** though.

7. I Know Now
But didn't until I "Googled" the term on my Notebook in my hotel room.

I thought it may have been an ethnic term for a food I couldn't eat.

Hey, I didn't know and there's not a whole lot of "mench's" in Kentucky...and thankfully not a lot of getfile fish either.
