Cheesy Thoughts at a Family Restaurant
The scene: a pizza parlor’s weekly all-you-can-eat pizza-and-salad buffet.
1. Should I tell the cashier my 4-year-old is 3-years-old in order to get her meal free?
2. When my daughter asks for a quarter for me to play the car racing arcade game with her, should I ask her, “Did you bring a quarter from your horsey bank?” And then… “Ahh, shucks. Remember to bring one next time.”
3. Should I walk around to all of the tables cutting the helium balloons free so that I can hand my daughter a huge bouquet?
4. When we’re finished eating, should I ask the cashier for a to-go box and head over to the buffet to fill ‘er up?
One of those ideas my wife thought up. One comes to my mind on every visit. One I observed a father actually doing. One I did myself.
