I had two very unpleasant dining experiences in the past week. The first was at IHOP and the second was today at Pappy's Sweet Shop (located in Purdue Memorial Union).
The IHOP in Lafayette, IN has been in business for about half a year. I have my list of favorites that I usually order from: pigs in blankets, potato pancakes and Philly cheesesteak. Last time I was adventurous and tried the stuffed French toast, which wasn't half bad. This time, I tried their cheese blintz.
This was one of the most offensive things I have put into my mouth. I can't believe I ate two of them. The exterior was a smooshy crepe that housed a cottage cheese-like consistency interior. For those of you that know me, you know I'll eat close to anything. I couldn't finish it with each bite the taste and texture became increasingly vile. It tasted so awful, I actually left a comment card.

Nothing sweet about that place. Amanda and I both ordered hot dogs. Really, how can you mess up a hot dog? It's up there with eggs. Upon receiving our grayish hot dogs, we sighed and chomped into them. I look over at Amanda who was closely examining her hot dog when she exclaimed, "God, I didn't think the inside could be any grosser than the outside." At which point (and I instantly regretted, just as Pandora regretted opening that box) I looked at the hot pink insides of my hot dog. I made myself finish the hot dog. After several hours of feeling ill, I realized trying to get my 2 bucks worth just wasn't...well... worth it.
