Wandering along Guildford High Street this lunchtime, hunting down some food, I came across a new restaurant, Wagamamas. “Open Monday!” it proclaimed, and my heart sank. Then, a friendly-looking woman in a rather fetching pinney, spying my eagerness to go in, asked if I’d like to sample the food. “Christ, yes,” I replied, “but you look expensive…”.
“Not at all, sir, we’re training today. Everything’s free.”
Everything’s free. That’s like a red rag to a bull. I still harbour my student inclination to take any free offer that comes my way, and I was in that door like a shot.
Now Wagamama is, apparently, famous. I haven’t a clue if this is true – I don’t get out much these days. However, their website seems quite impressive. I burst into the restaurant, and parked myself next to a lady who turned out to be recruiting for a speed-dating agency. My rugged good looks obviously impressed her, and she handed me a leaflet. I explained that my girlfriend may have something to say about me taking up her kind offer, and disappointed, she wondered off to accost some other poor man.
I had a full 2 course meal, washed down with 2 large bottles of Tiger beer. All for absolutely nothing. My stomach was most impressed. No such thing as a free lunch? Yeah there is…
