Dinner in Chinatown. (Rama is a fan of noodle soup). Waiter comes over, setting down my plate of VEGGIE spring rolls. In a strong Chinese accent, "Here's yo' WE-GGIE..." Meaning, VEGGIE, of course.
Rama: He's giving you a wedgie?!
(Rama knows wedgie as underwear that gets stuck between butt-cheeks. Something that one has to fix pronto. Once, she also worried about how some girls wear thongs - wedgie always!)
