Why you shouldn't confuse 'desert' and 'dessert'
- Waiter: What would you like for dessert, sir?
- Me: I would like the Gobi, with Mongolian sauce.
- Waiter: We do not serve that here, sir.
- Me: But... it says deserts....
When I get a menu that says "Deserts" on it, I get excited and try to purchase the Gobi desert, but restaurants never have it. When people make simple mistakes like that, it crushes my heart, and I feel empty inside.
I've heard that several people have committed suicide over incidents like this. So don't screw this up, ok?
What the desert looks like
What the desert smells like
Dirt; lots and lots of dirt. It's a rather potent smell, much more potent than, say, your typical gardening dirt.
