A Most Pecular Dining Experience

This weekend The Husband and I decided to go on a date together and we tried a new restaurant. It was small and quaint. The owner welcomed us and sat us down with a simple typed menu. I figured "What the heck?" and ordered onion rings and chocolate cake as my meal! The waitress was confused and kept asking me what I wanted to eat for dinner. She actually copped a bit of an attitude and could be heard arguing with the owner, as well as the cook in the kitchen!

Our food came out pretty quickly and we actually invited the owner to sit down and eat with us. That caused a little bit of confusion, but it was fun! The owner was a riot! She told us we were sitting next to her eye doctor. We stopped laughing long enough to notice there was a hair in my food! When I showed it to the owner she said not to worry, it would be no charge. I thought she was referring to my meal, however, she clarified by saying I still had to pay for my meal, but the hair was free!

Oh my word!

In reality, the owner was #3, the waitress was #1 and our cook was #2! And, of course, the eye doctor was The Dog (I think #3 was trying to remember "seeing eye dog")! Our dining room consisted of our "living/family room" and we dined on play food on the coffee table. It was a relaxing day filled with lots of laughter!

That is too funny. I love hearing about family times like those.

Ok, for a second there I wanted the name of the restaurant so that I could make sure I never eat there. That was too funny!

How cute! I remember one day dining at LadyBug and BBE's cafe, to be served cold spaghetti "just like the college kids." I guess they spent a lot of time with our small group gang at the time :)
