A Waiter With A Gift

Bubba's Sis and I decided that we deserved a treat after our week. We loaded up the kids and met at my neighborhood Chili's. The kids to have their table and we to have ours. My crew got there first. We were seated and the waiter came to get our drink orders. He took a look at me and said that he thought he'd waited on us before. I smiled demurely and agreed. He got our drink orders and left. Not a minute later, he came back and had this to say: You were seating just like this at this table. You were with another lady and your kids with other kids. You both ordered the Triple Dipper. I laughed & told him how impressed I was with his memory. He was right. The funny thing was that this was not a recent night he was referring. He left then came back again to tell me this: You both ordered the same three; spinach artichoke dip, southwestern eggrolls, and..... well, I can't remember the 3rd item (it was cheese sticks if you are curious). Whoa! I was starting to get a tad nervous. He even remembered our menu items! I once again told him how much he impressed me. He demurely replied it was a gift. And he figured we'd order the same thing. I coyly (but not flirtatiously) replied that we might shock him. The Bubba's Sis crew arrived and we ordered. Yes, indeed, we shocked him. We only ordered ONE Triple Dipper with double southwestern eggrolls to share.

It was kinda freaky. And he did eventually remember the cheese sticks, too. I think he's stalking us.

Dude! I wasn't flirting! Me? No way! I didn't get the flirting gene passed to me from daddy. Nope, sure didn't. I think you got that one. I'm so happily married that I forgot how to flirt.

Okay, I don't know why all of these are immediately bringing back memories, but...do you remember when we went to the pizza place and you pretended you were blind?

Hee! I didn't until I read this. I forgot all about that! What possessed us to do half the things we did? Also, remember the time at the pizza place, I(we?)was writing on a dirty truck and some man came out pretending it was his truck? That was bad!

I went to a Chili's a few years ago and the waiter openly flirted with me in front of my SIL, BIL and husband. Must be a Chili's hiring requirement, flatter the ladies! It's all good with me! xoxo
