Lisa broke out in hives after eating salad from the cafeteria salad bar. Being allergic to soy, she was careful to avoid the soy items. But she didn't know that the spoon she used for the cucumbers had been used to scoop out tofu by someone else.
Apparently, I have never made women as happy as salad has.
