Aditi: “Omg. Hot, hot, hot. That’s so hot. What the hell did you do!?”
Her entire group of friends bursts into laughter. When they had calmed down relatively, Pooja decided to speak up “Whoops. I should have warned you, but then again that would have taken the fun out of the birthday prank. That would be the Jalapeño peppers. They pack quite a punch – they range from 2,500 to 8,000 on the Scoville scale. Oh and by the way, Happy birthday sweetie.”
Aditi: “Water…Must have water”
Someone was kind enough to hand Aditi a bottle of water which she emptied in one go.
Aditi: “The what scale, now? Can you speak English!”
Pooja: “Why don’t you google it up while we go and get you the actual birthday cake.”
I love spicy food. This wasn’t written from a personal experience. However, I hope my friends don’t get any ideas after this post. But then again, my birthday falls in January. So hopefully, they have a lot of time to forget about this idea!
