Saganaki Coma - Labradoris
 
A few weeks ago, we took a trip to Chicago to present academic research at a conference.  When we are in Chicago, Joel and I make a pilgrimage to Yanni’s, which is about 30 minutes outside of Chicago.  Yanni’s is an authentic Greek restaurant and they have amazing food in a beautiful setting.

This trip while were at Yanni's eating dinner with our undergraduate research assistants, all of a sudden several firemen came in - distinctly not ambulance, as they had 'fire dept' written on their shirts - and went past our table to a table a few feet away.  They talked to an older woman for a few moments, and then brought a stretcher in for her to lie on.  They lifted her on it and she just laid there with her eyes closed.  Everyone was really calm, the woman was in some pain but she was being fairly quiet, and then they wheeled her out.  I looked over at her family and they just sat back down and started eating.  No concern on their faces, they just started talking again.  It was the strangest thing!  I wonder why they were so calm.  Maybe the woman frequently visits the hospital and it was more routine for the family?  I have no idea.  I hope she's okay, but thought it was very strange!

Maybe she had too much saganaki.  

I could never have too much saganaki.  I think you could literally strap me down and force feed me saganaki for 11 hours straight and I’d be like, “What?  Why are you stopping?  MORE.  I need more saganaki!!”
