We decided to go out to dinner this evening. It was a good time; even after 26+ years we still very much enjoy each otherâ€™s company
The service at the restaurant was a little uneven. This didnâ€™t deter us from an enjoyable evening, but the awkwardness was noticeable. The server seemed to be struggling a little bit, for example, when he ran down the dessert list he mentioned â€œchocolate chip, pumpkin, strawberry shortcake, etc.â€ but didnâ€™t tell us what the dessert actually was. To avoid making things more confusing, I passed on asking â€œchocolate chip, what?â€ and just went with strawberry shortcake, which turned out to be a cookie with a scoop of ice cream.
