Jag är inte tankspridd. Jag är bara extremt fokuserad.

Okej. Vi är utomlands. Vi åt middag på en restaurang. Och absolut, det är mycket möjligt att jag inte lyssnar så uppmärksamt som jag borde när folk pratar med mig medan jag tittar i en meny, men jag gillar menyer. Jag tycker att det är en väldigt underskattad litteraturform.

Så hur som helst. Vi var ett lite större sällskap. Och några i sällskapet hade tydligen beställt spaghetti. Jag hörde inte det. Jag var upptagen med att läsa. För det är faktiskt viktigt att läsa. Själen behöver föda lika mycket som magen, säger filosoferna, och det fina med menyer är att de erbjuder båda. Så nej, jag hörde inte det där om spaghettin.

Men servitören kom i alla fall ut med bestick och en korg bröd och en ganska stor skål parmesanost och ställde alltihop på bordet. Jag ska inte säga att han ställde skålen med parmesanost PRECIS framför mig, men han ställde den liksom lite snett till höger om mig. Det var verkligen inte helt osannolikt att han kanske kunde ha MENAT satt ställa den framför mig men liksom missade lite. Servitörer kan vara väldigt slarviga. Man vet ju hur de håller på.

Så, i alla fall. Hade jag vetat det där om att några i vårt sällskap hade beställt spaghetti så hade jag kanske fattat att en skål fylld av parmesanost var att betrakta som tillbehör till spaghettin som strax skulle komma in på bordet. Men nu visste jag ju inte det. Och en del restauranger har fan skitkonstiga grejer för sig med små mellanrätter och soppor och sorbeter eller vad det nu heter och allt möjligt. Det är inte så lätt att veta. Det var ett enkelt missförstånd och ett misstag som nästan vem som helst hade kunnat göra. Eller kanske inte vem som helst men till exempel vem som helst som verkligen gillar parmesanost.

Det låg en sked i skålen. Skålen innehöll ost. Den stod nästan framför mig. Så jag åt den.

Och när servitören kom tillbaka och undrade vad jag höll på med och jag försökte förklara så tittade en person i vårt sällskap som jag inte kände jättebra sedan tidigare på mig och frågade ”Men alltså, det var en skål med parmesanost, exakt hur tänkte du?”.

Och då vände sig min fru om och svarade lugnt och sansat ”Fredrik? Han tänkte förmodligen: BÄSTA FÖRRÄTTEN NÅGONSIN!”.

She gets me.

She really gets me.

  1. Jag är servitör och älskar parmesanost – har lite svårt att välja om jag skall vara förolämpad eller anse att du är ett geni…

  2. Kärlek!
    Får lite usa minnen.
    Det är inte maten utan tillbehören som är grejen…
    BTW reading your blogg always put a smile on my face.

  3. Åh!!! En gång var jag på en tyst retreat. Alla åt i tystnad. Efter lunchen ställdes en tallrik med nått lite sött och mycket fluffigt ner framför mig. Tänkte, åh gott, efterättsmousse! Och började glatt mumsa i mig. Det var tydligen en stor tallrik grädde. Som skulle vara till fruktsalladen. Ingen sa nått. Det var ju en tyst retreat. Men alla andra åt frukt. Med typ två miniklickar grädde på toppen.

    Gött att inte vara ensam! 😀 😀 😀

  4. Är det här verkligen sant? Det känns som att detta verkligen inte är något som någon människa kan göra, men å andra sidan känns det för dumt för att vara påhittat av någon som inte äter hallucinogena droger på frekvent basis…

  5. Linus;
    Är det första gången du läser Backman? Detta är nämligen Fredrik i ett nötskal…

    Och Fredrik, när ska du skaffa feed till din blogg så man bara kan kolla av lite hastigt när du skrivit nått nytt? 😉

  6. Min man och min bror använde en gång sån där skål med citronvatten för handtvätt som dipp till grönsaksstavar. Sen kom maten in.

  7. Lugn, jag vet några som försökte äta vad de trodde var dessert på en indisk restaurang. Det var varma parfymerade handdukar.

  8. Jessica: nejdå, jag har läst i flera år men jag tyckte detta var lite väl, även för en man som älskar ost.

  9. Linus: för oss som älskar ost är det fullkomligt logiskt. Och rätt. Varför har de inte stora skålar med ost som förrätt på alla restauranger?
