"Will this booth be okay?"
"Yes this is perfect." (Danielle)
They get seated and wait for the waitress to return. Danielle and Rod both recognize the DJ from the Daddy/Daughter dance. They say hello to him and his companion.
"Will you guys be ordering from the breakfast menu or the regular menu?"
"We're going to order from the breakfast menu." (Rod)
"What can I get you to drink?"
"Do you have Coke?" (Julian)
"Julian, your choices are milk or juice." (Danielle)
"But mom, Uncle Ian let's me have Coke." (Julian)
"I will discuss that with your Uncle Ian."
"So the New Year's gig was a pretty lucrative one. We have to try to book more of those in 2012."
"Those are the best kind of gigs. Lots of money and not a lot of trouble getting paid on time." (DJ)
"Everywhere we go now, he wants to order Coke." (Danielle)
"It's just a new taste for him. He will grow out of it." (Rod)
:"Guess what I just got." (Nicole)
"A horse! (Nicole)
"A real horse? Where is it?" (Julian)
"He stays in a barn, but they call it a stable." (Nicole)
"Did she not like the mac 'n cheese?" (waitress)
"She's been complaining of a tummy ache. So we'll take it home with us for later. Thanks." (mom)
"Will there be anything else? (waitress)
"Just the bill." (Kurt)
"So you still haven't told me what emergency came up and kept you from going to the party. Did this emergency have anythng to do with a guy? (DJ)
"Do I detect a hint of jealousy? We are not a couple, remember? So that question is out of bounds."
Meanwhile, the waitress has delivered the food. They realize, after the waitress has left, they do not have silverware. They have gotten her attention and are waiting.
"Hmmm, those pancakes look good. Are you guys sharing?" (Danielle)
"Mommy, you can have a piece of my smile?" (Julian)
"How very kind of you, son." (Danielle)
Each of the kids got the signature smiley face pancakes. Danielle and Rod both got two sunny side up eggs with hashbrowns and tturkey bacon. They both decide to forego the stack that comes with the meal. There will be plenty of left over pancakes with the kids. The smiley face pancakes can be found in my Etsy store. The adult meal will be added after I redo it. The plate needs a lot more hashbrowns, and I am not all pleased with this batch of turkey bacon.
I also want to inform you of a minor family change. Kurt and his wife now have two daughters. This baby girl used to be part of a different family that never really developed. She is a much better fit with this family. Can you see the resemblance?
