Every Tuesday we follow the same lunch routine.
I sit in the back seat as we travel to KC. I'm okay with this. For one, I feel like I'm being chauffeured. Second, I don't have to turn my neck around, like a gawking chicken, to make conversation. I sit in the back seat and enjoy whatever music of the day we listen to. Today was Real Jazz.
Since we go there weekly, the folks that work there know us. We think we're famous. ( I'm betting it's more like infamous.) We don't use menus.
We have our favorite waitress, Kelly. She knows our order (since we order the same thing 99% of the time) and we know about her kitten. She turned 21 in July. She and her boyfriend are Man United fans, so we always have something to talk about. And the best part? She doesn't take any crap from SS.
Most days, it's just Sir, Larry and me for lunch. And most days, Steven sits by me, and Larry sits across from us. It works for us.
Today, both the boys sat across from me:
We had a special guest for lunch today. Fresh from the desert somewhere in the Middle East, the returning hero:
Welcome back Mikey Mike. Don't sit next to me ever again.
Larry and I always enjoy unsweet tea, and Steven gets Coke. I tell you this, because most of the wait staff at KC know our order ; and not just our drink order, our food order. It's a little embarrassing, as all I can figure is they have our photos posted somewhere in the kitchen, with the words, "difficult" to describe us.
I get the Chicken Salad Plate. Larry gets the chicken fingers with Gangsta Sauce. How yummy does this look? Oh, and their fries? Really really good. And that blur in the left hand corner would be Mike's finger trying to ruin my picture. Thus why he never is allowed to sit next to me.
Steven gets the Parmesan Ranch burger, medium, no tomato, no onion, lettuce only, bacon on the side and absolutely, positively NO PICKLE! The man hates pickles. Pickles are B A D. But, oh, the food is G O O D.
Now, every Tuesday, at 11:30 am, you can know exactly what I'm doing, and exactly what I'm eating. Your life should feel a little more complete now.
