How did this happen?

Last night Thing One and I ordered Chinese food. For some reason, I had a real craving for shrimp toast, so we ordered from the one (of three) delivery places that has it on the menu.

It did not live up to my expectations.

The thing is, oddly enough, that none of the Chinese food delivery places near Thing One are all that good. Now, where I live, I don't have delivery (you can call ahead and pick up, though). But in Brooklyn? That's one of the basic rights of every inhabitant of that borough: the right to good takeout/delivery Chinese (and Italian and pizza).

And yet, somehow, Thing One lives in a black hole. Someone tell me how that happens.
