A strange and fascinating episode was about to happen in a small, intimate restaurant tucked away in a quiet corner of town. Known for his kind personality, the restaurant owner was accustomed to serving a wide range of customers. But this day would be different from all the others.
The owner of the restaurant gave the blind man a warm greeting as soon as he walked in. “Menu, sir?” he smiled and inquired.
With a quiet grin, the blind guy answered, “Just bring me one of your dirty forks; I’m blind.” I’ll be able to determine what to order after I smell it.”
Despite being surprised by the request, the owner chose to entertain the blind man. With a nod, he headed to the kitchen to get a fork. He came back holding the utensil and gave it to the man who was blind.
The blind man inhaled deeply while holding the fork up to his nose. He paused to think for a bit before announcing with confidence, “Yes, I will have the lamb with seasoned potatoes and spring vegetables.”
The owner was astounded by what he heard. Astonished, he watched the blind man savor his meal and eventually make his way out of the restaurant.
To the owner’s surprise, the blind man came back two weeks later. The owner thought of a cunning plan this time. He wished to see how far the blind man’s remarkable sense of smell could go.
The proprietor entered the kitchen undetected, seeing as his spouse Brenda was occupied with getting the dishes ready for the meal. Saying something like, “Do me a favor and rub this fork over your private part!” he leaned over to her.
Brenda was surprised at first by her husband’s request, but she chose to comply without questioning why.
With a cunning smirk, the proprietor hurried back to the blind man’s table and gave him the fork. He was eager to witness the blind man’s response.
Taking the fork, the blind man put it to his nose and took a deep breath. His expression changed to one of amazement, and he said, “Oh, intriguing! I had no idea Brenda was employed here.”
The owner laughed heartily, amazed by the blind man’s extraordinary ability to smell even the most peculiar aromas. That day at the restaurant was made to remember by a humorous and friendly encounter that left both the blind man and the owner with a special and fascinating story to tell.
