Who's On First

I just had the following e-mail correspondence with a (non-Jewish) colleague.

I invited her to join me and my associate for a working breakfast tomorrow morning. I told her that the breakfast would take place at my most favorite food company, on 45th and 6th.

This was her response:

"Sure, I'd love to join you. What is the name of your most favorite food place?"

    I think you mean "My Most Favorite Dessert Company"

    Heh. (But AM is right.) You could have stopped by, right around the corner...

    With all due respect, AM is NOT right. As the legal king of hock, if there is one thing I know, it's kosher restaurants. They changed their name. Ezzie, if you are right around the corner, check out their awning.

    It's (GASP) true. They did change their name to food company. Either way, it's a stuoid name.

    They must have changed owners... I never thought that lady would sell, but it looks like she did!

    Oy. Sad to say, I've fallen into the NY trap of never looking up around me. :(

    But next time you're coming this way, feel free to drop me an e-mail.

    She didn't sell; just changed the name.


    I work two blocks away from there.

    Well, if you didn't capitalize the name of the restaurant, I probably would have made the same mistake (if I was a non-Jewish New Yorker).

    ...and in a similar field, if I'm not mistaken. Well, if you ever want to do lunch, I'd be happy to.
