Today, I didn't omsawo and I immediately regretted it.
What does to omsawo mean?


And by the way, my other puzzle is longing for new questions (;

do you usually omsawo every day? just once?

is it something everyone does? at the start of the day? any time?

do other people omsawo? often? regularly? is it just a girl thing?

did you regret it because you felt bad for not doing it? did you feel guilty? dirty? or did you just miss the good feelings you usually get from omsawo-ing? did you regret it becase of the effect it would have on someone else?

did something prevent you from omsawo-ing? or was it a choise not to? were you too busy?

Is it related to placing an order in general? Placing an order for a specific style of food? Placing an order for a specific food? for a specific topping? In a specific container?

Is it related to receiving what you have ordered?

Does it matter whether the food is served buffet-style or you order specific items from a menu?

You answered earlier that this could be a cafeteria, take-away or delivery.

Would this not work in a traditional restaurant, where one is seated and served?
Could be be delivery – did you need to be there, physically present at the time of the “omsawoing”?
Are you ordering from a printed menu or some sort of display board? Does this matter?
When does the “omsawoing” happen –
When you enter the establishment?
Review your options?
Wait to place your order?
As you order?
Right after you order?
While your order is being gathered/prepped?
As you pay?
As you eat?
As you leave?

Does it have to do with particular toppings/condiments/additives? Like, I always order my sandwiches without tomatoes, but if I forget to specify that, then they automatically put tomatoes on the sandwich.

Uh, I'm definitely feeling with you. I positively HATE onions to the extent that, when I was still living with my parents, I even used to pick the tiny onion pieces out of every onion-containing instant sauce they used (I myself don't even buy the stuff in the first place), and I hate how everybody seem to assume that everyone likes onions and put them i{everywhere}.

<\rant>

Yeah, being an onion-hater can be tough, lol ;-)
