Long Distance Eating
Leave it to mom/dad to go out on their own unattended to find trouble. It is the weekend, right? They might as well have been wearing matching shirts that say, “Here comes Trouble 1 and Trouble 2.” I’m just sayin’.
So mom/dad pulled themselves out of bed yesterday morning to go to our local Cracker Barrel restaurant – you know for a cozy breakfast. This trip was anything but cozy mom found out. They had gotten these new tables not too long ago. Do you see anything wrong with the tables? They look fine – all in perfect condition, no scratches or uneven legs. But, look closer. Mom said it felt like dad was sitting in another zip code away from her. You see it now, right?
Mom told dad that it was hard for her to talk to him because she felt like she had to speak up volumes for him to hear. Dad of course with his witless humor told mom to get some cups with string…. shakes my piggy head. That’s my daddy always ready for a joke or three.
Have you ever been to a restaurant that the tables were this far out from one side to another? And it was a four top – not a huge table for a big group. But boy did mom say it felt like that for sure.
