I'll Just Have the Side Salad--No Dressing

The other night we ventured out to a restaurant with Claire. The waitress came to greet our table. The conversation went like this:

Very Friendly Waitress: "Hi! Ooooh, how far along are you?"

Me: Uhhh . . . (look over at Claire sitting quietly in her infant seat. Suck in tummy a bit more. Contemplate skipping dinner.)

. . . . . . Awkward Pause . . . . . . .

Very Friendly Waitress: "I am only about 1/3 of the way through it. Isn't it good?"

Me: Wha? Huh?

Very Friendly Waitress: (gestures to the latest Harry Potter book we brought with us to read while waiting for our food.)

Me: Oh, yes. (giggle nervously) We are about at the half way point. Yes, yes . . . ah . . . very good indeed.

lol...that was so funny. now, are you sharing the book? do you read aloud?

Yeah, we read it aloud. This is the only book we do that on. We like to discuss our theories on it as the story unfolds. Sad, but true.

There are not many people that can make me laugh EVERY time I read their stories...you are one of them!
