One night last week Cindy said to me, "I'm going to the mexican restaurant and getting burritos for supper, is that OK with you?" It had been a while since we have had mexican so I agreed and gave her my choice by saying, "Sounds good, but I'd rather have a grilled chicken taco salad."
Cindy's Dad really likes a small restaurant close to us called Flo's Country Cafe, he had mentioned wanting an omelet from Flo's, so Cindy told me that since she was going to be right there she would pick one up for him.
That works, I said, "Flo's food is always good," "So you are saying that you would rather have Flo's?" she asked, "No I still want the taco salad from the mexican restaurant."
She grabbed her pocketbook and keys and said, I'm getting ready to go, set the table for me and I'll be right back, she then went into the living room to tell her dad she was going to pick up our food.
Cindy said: "Hey Dad, I'm going to get our food, be right back."
"Where are you going?" he asked.
"To get our food."
"WHERE are you going?"
"TO Get Our Food."
"No where are you going to get our food from?"
"Oh sorry, going to the mexican restaurant and Flo's."
"What's Jimmy having?"
"Taco salad." she said
"But he likes Flo's, didn't you tell him you were going to Flo's."
I was listening to this exchange when Cindy called me to join in the conversation. Dad wanted me to make sure if you would rather have Flo's instead of mexican? No the taco salad sounds good I assured them, but Dad is having Flo's and he didn't want you to have mexican just because I'm having burritos.
She then hands me a menu from Flo's she happened to have. Look at the menu and tell me what you want.
I started to speak, I want....., she gave me that look and said, Just look at the menu......., but I want the taco salad! I didn't know I changed my mind, Okay I'll get you the taco salad!
Cindy calls in our food and leaves to pick it up, these restaurants are very close to our house so she wasn't gone too long.
Cindy's Dad says "Wow look at this omelet, that's a lot of food."
He takes a bite, "Man this is good."
I'm looking at my taco salad and thinking, I should have gotten Flo's.
What is your favorite restaurant or food when you go out to eat?
