I Have Arrived

Frequent readers will know I'm obsessed with the restaurant "Not Your Average Joe's." Last night, I had the experience to trump them all.

After frequenting the establishment between one and three times a week for the last five months, my dream finally came true.

Kylee and I were seated, and before long, the waiter popped in with two diet-cherry cokes and asked if we were having the usual. I looked at him blankly, wondering if I'd heard him right, when he asked if I wanted my salad with half-grilled/half-fried chicken and dressing on the side. You know, like usual.

Believe it or not, this was actually the night I was going to try something new (GASP!). To top it off, Terrell (I had to learn his name after this star treatment) mentioned he wasn't sure it was me; as my hair was different from the last time I'd been in.

So; in short: Waiter of the Year remembered my crazy drink and crazy food order to the letter. He has only served me once for the record; more than a month ago. That's some kind of memory right there!

I felt important.

Amazingness. I haven't made it to Thursdays at Joes in a while because it is sad and lonely by myself.

And the last time I went our favorite bartender wasn't working which made me sad. But the bread was delicious! Guess who's going for lunch this week now! ha!

That't the coolest thing ever! You're a regular! Do you think the waitstaff ever talk about the customers and crazy orders? Is that why he remembered? I hope you left a great tip and you should think about praising him to his manager.

I had the same experience when I went to the Paramount 3 times a week for breakfast. I always ordered one chocolate chip pancake, one banana pancake, and one blueberry pancake. I felt like the coolest person in the world when the cook said to me...the usual? when I walked in...

:D

This is all more simple than you make it. Terrell simply wants Nat and or her body. You remember all kinds of stuff when you dig somebody.

J-Rad--you have a point. However, I'm pretty sure Terrell likes boys.

my first thought was along those same lines, mooney. however, in light of nat's theory, i am going to say the waiter has a "girl crush" on our nat. after all, she is a style icon.
