Infinitely better

I was having breakfast at a cafe that had exactly one vegetarian option. My dining companion said to me, “It’s too bad they have only one thing for you on the menu.”

I replied, without really thinking about it, “Yes, but it’s infinitely better than if they had zero things for me on the menu.”

Then I realized that what I had just said was mathematically correct, in a very precise way. Somehow that made the breakfast taste better.
