Oh, only that I travel with one of those small pepper mills in my purse everywhere. I remember asking for fresh cracked pepper at the Olive Garden, and the server either forgetting or taking longer than expected to bring the restaurant's mill, so I reached in to my purse and broke out my own. I seem to recall several at the table using it.
In Manhattan Xar was so...bemused(?)... by me carrying around my own pepper mill that he took a picture of me grinding it on to my meal (whoever heard of a steak house without pepper mills???).
*g-ds I am so nonphotogenic*
...and my mill is Alessi brand mixed peppercorns rather than McCormick, which IMO are way better than McCormick, but I have bought the McCormick grinder of mixed peppercorns on occasion instead...
