Well, nobody objected, so here's a good story for you: One of our players brought a salad to the meal.
That's right. A salad. I'm not talking about a meatless sandwich like that brie, sauteed onion, tomato, and shredded lettuce with honey mustard on dark rye build we talked about last time- an honest to goodness fucking SALAD. Even worse, she decided she'd make it spinach-based. And I'm not talking about a sandwich or even a CALZONE with a salad side either- the salad was her main course. She just wanted to try something a little different.
Well, we figure she's still new, she'll learn her mistake pretty early and we can just have her re-roll. Besides, if she wants to be a side-dish class all the more power to the rest of us, right?
So the first course of the meal comes up. I'm playing my roast beef build and go for the first bite, but it's no good; my sauce wasn't the right fucking kind to tantalize the foe.(Makes me all the more glad we switched to 4th edition rules.)
So instead of hiding behind us, the salad goes in for the next bite. We all think, well, this will be over quickly.

We all thought that shit was worthless but oh my god did she prove us wrong. And she wasn't a minmaxer either; she "Just thought it looked like a fun combination."
She's been welcome at every meal since.
