Karen Dunbar's column: Chinese meal hits sour note.

LIFE for me is like a Chinese restaurant. Let me elaborate... Now, I'm a fairly carefree woman - my ego tells me I'm the type who would bungee jump into the Grand Canyon, swim with sharks or do a parachute jump. I'd even take Diana Ross's photo. I may go as far as to call myself a thrill seeker, but any time I visit a Chinese restaurant the following happens... I get the menu and say: "Right, I always have sweet and sour chicken, but tonight I'll have something different." I begin an extensive search of the menu and toy with the idea of roast duck in an oyster sauce. I argue for and against the devouring of pattaya beef with onion and peppers and then I settle on the salt and pepper squid. The waiter arrives, pen at the ready. I clear my throat and announce in a clear, confident voice: "...sweet and sour chicken please." What a woos!
