A word to the wise
When enjoying a top-quality Chinese dinner with my wife and Dan and Sarah Hoyt, I must remember: don't - I repeat, do not - DO NOT!!! - bite into one of those little dark red dried chili peppers that the Sichuan Chinese so thoughtfully include in some of their allegedly 'milder' dishes.
It took my eyes and nose about five minutes to stop running over, and another five minutes before I could converse at least semi-intelligently.
