My wife and I had just finished eating at a local restaurant. We had one of those meals that come with a small desert. The waitress asked me what I wanted and I said, “Orange sherbet.”
She asked, “How about some rainbow sherbet?.”
“Ok…” I said thinking that a taste of lemon and lime would be nice.
When she brought our deserts she put a dish of orange sherbet in front of me.
“I thought you were going to bring rainbow sherbet?” I asked.
“I did” she said, “I just took it out of the orange part of the rainbow.”
