Big Mango and the Nefarious Plan

Saturday night, after sitting through a really bad movie, we went to one of our favorite restaurants, Big Mango, for dinner. We were nearly the only people there, only one other table was occupied. The waitress was so bored she practically spent the entire meal in my lap, asking for something, anything she could do for us. She also offered to clear the table while we were still eating, but actually she had improved from the first time she waited on us, so no hard feelings.

About halfway through our meal, a group of four teenage boys came into the restaurant. I guessed they were about 15, but I am so bad at judging ages they could easily have been 9 or 19. They acted about 15 though. They ordered a single order of sticky rice to go. I'm stumped. I've been trying for two days and I cannot for the life of me figure out why four teenage boys would want sticky rice. If they had the munchies, they were right across the street from a 7-Eleven. If they were planning minor acts of vandalism I think that toilet paper and plastic forks would give them a far more satisfying result. I can't come up with any hot new drugs of choice which require the use of a single order of sticky rice.

Clearly, they had a nefarious plan and I am just too old and out of it to figure out what it was.

mmmm.... sticky rice. I can't think of what the nefarious plan was either. But you're right - it does sound suspicious. Can you make explosives out of sticky rice?

I have had this guy come through my checkout twice now with huge bags of bulk poppyseed. I'm wondering if you can still get opium from it, cuz really, who needs that much for baking?

Hmm.. Sticky rice in gas tanks? Sticky rice balls to throw at passing cars? Or maybe they were buying it for their elderly grandmother who's dying wish was an order of sticky rice?

You don't know about the sticky rice? aaaaahahahahahaha, hey guys, she doesn't know about the sticky rice!

Forget the sticky rice, I'm just trying to figure out the whole Wicker Park debacle...

I'm usually just a lurker, but this has inspired me to post. If you haven't seen Garden State yet, check it out. Awesome movie.

Maybe they were sent there by their mother who was making some sort of dinner that goes well with sticky rice?

Or maybe they just really like sticky rice?

maybe they were making sushi??? throw at passing cars???.....from the top of an overpass???

My guess is as good as yours. I'm stumped.

Okay, this is probably WAY too naive and innocent but I wonder if they were on some kind of scavenger hunt? Oh, who am I kidding? Teenage boys = up to no good. I wonder if you can murder someone with a single order of sticky rice.

Is that like the three seashells?

Big Mango and the Nefarious Plan sounds like the title of a kid's book. A fun one, like Lizard Music or James and the Giant Peach.
