Conversation at a dinner out, approximated.

Me: what’s the soup of the day?
Server: mushroom.
Me: is that creamy or broth-y?
Server: creamy.
Friend, rhetorically: when have you ever seen broth-y mushroom soup? What a silly question.
Me: Chinese soups…
Friend: We’re at a brew-pub! Do you think they are serving Chinese soup? Still a silly question!
Me: I like to be accurate about why I’m wrong.

The server was entertained.
