Sally's Life Lesson #6,754:
If you enjoy socializing with your good friends over dinner and cocktails, and you want to continue said friendship, NEVER order food that you can not pronounce.
For example, this is a Portuguese (and Spanish) dessert called FLAN:
FLAN is a gelatinous dessert that is very sweet and similar to custard.
On the flip side, PHLEGM is not a Portuguese dessert.
It is actually a grotesque combination of snot and mucous that comes out of your nose and/or throat when you hock up a loogey.
For the love of all that is sacred and holy, puh-leeze do not confuse the two...lest you make everyone in your company want to blow chunks at the dinner table.
