A common saying here in the South when one is having trouble keeping his food on his plate is, "Do you need sideboards?" Well, here is a conversation I had at lunch today with a friend as I was having trouble keeping my food on the plate:
Her: Do you need sideboards?
Me: I guess so. You know, I should patent that and invent that. Plates with sideboards.
Her: They're called bowls.
Me: Oh. Yeah. Nevermind.
