I thought, "Man, things sure are different in Charleston these days. Did Hunter Thompson fake his death to come open a restaurant here?"

(Seriously, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesclun )

3. Oh, I'm sure she said "mesclun"; I'd never heard the term before.
In a noisy room, I couldn't quite tell what she said, and was just tickled by what it sounded like. If there was any dumbness involved, it was on my end. Still funny, though.
