Dining Out with Friends

Friday, on the spur of a moment, we went out to dinner with Ben, Melinda, and Nicole. Lately, we’d been lamenting not seeing much of Ben and Melinda lately so when Nicole organized a social dinner by email and Ben responded Britt hooked us in as well.

Our first mistake, really, was going out to eat on a Friday night in the Beloit area without a reservation. Dining out seems to be the thing to do around here on a Friday night (maybe it’s that way everywhere . . .) so we ended up waiting an hour and a half to get a table.

Should we have bailed and gone elsewhere? Maybe but the situation probably would have been the same.

Overall, I think we had a good time despite our excessive standing around and waiting. At least we were waiting with friends and much of the conversation that we would have had during dinner instead took place while we standing around. Everything is better when you’ve got friends with you.

    Conversation once the food had arrived was more like:

    “NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM PASS THE BEER-BATTERED DEEP-FRIED CHEESE CURDS NOM NOM NOOM…”

    As is only right and proper.
