Suddenly, the Room Went Silent . . .
When discussing dessert options with our lovely waitresss, I asked about the pecan pie. I pronounced it "PEE-can". The waitress quickly corrected me, "peh-CAHN pie," as heads of fellow diners turned to look at us and conversation abruptly ended. Thinking quickly, I requested that it be served hot and a la mode. Conversation around us resumed after I diffused the crisis.
