The waiter at Chili’s asked me after I ordered my Mushroom Swiss Burger.
I was dumbfucked, like huh? What?
Wait-ah:“What doneness do you want sir? For your Swiss Burger?”
Moi: “Excuse me? I didn’t catch you?
Wait-ah:“What doneness do you want?”
I paused after this, my brain churning for a while as to what he was talking about, it was like a puzzle, or some kind of wordgame in my head..
Doneness…Done?…Did…Done? Ah…Well Done! Medium Done…
He meant how did I want it cooked, ‘doneness’ there the good fella went and invented a new word.
“Ah, medium-well” I replied…that’s the doneness I require!
