When you’re at a restaurant together make sure he knows you cannot eat omurice. Omurice is a Japanese dish of rice topped with an omelette and can be found on the menu in any family restaurant and many coffee shops throughout Japan. For those of you outside of Japan, any egg-based dish like a normal omelette should work fine.
When seated, make sure you are seated next to your guy so that you can share a menu. Find the picture of omurice, gaze at it with consternation and exclaim sadly:
“I absolutely can’t eat omurice.”
There is almost 100% chance that your guy will respond with, “Why not? You don’t like omurice?”
Be silent for a few seconds for dramatic effect and continue: “I… well” (take a deep breath) “Every time an egg is cracked open those cute little chickees die…they’re killed! Those cute little baby chicks… I can’t bear to think about it! They’ll never get a chance to be born, to hop around and chirp those cute little chirps…” It is good to shiver at this point.
Your guy will gaze at you in amazement! What a kind, sensitive angelic person you are! Next he will be feeling the need to spend the time to really get to know you. He’s yours! Plans for a date are in the bag!
When you start going out with him, no doubt you will find yourselves at a similar restaurant where you can order omurice. You’ve got to know each other well enough, but of course he is going to ask. “Didn’t you say you couldn’t eat omurice?”
It is safe enough to blow it off with a “I’m OK with it now”, or “Oh, I got used to it”, or even a “Did I say that?…tehe-pero!”
