You can dress us up…

We dropped Whiny off at the movie theater, so he could see some teen brain candy thing with his friends, and then Pepperkat, the Mrs. and I headed off in search of a place to sup. Our first choice, Barnhill’s Buffet, was packed to the gills. So, we drove around in typical fashion:

“Where do you want to eat?”
“I dunno. Where do you want to eat?”
“I dunno. Where do you want to eat?”
“I dunno. Where do you want to eat?”

Try an hour or two of that the next time you want to get rid of that pesky will-to-live feeling… We finally decided to go to Steak and Ale for the logical reason that they have warm brown bread.

Things didn’t start off too well with our waiter:

ME: So, tell me, what kind of ale do they have at Steak and Ale?
HIM: Um, ale?
ME: Yes, my good man, ale. Perchance do you have Guinness? (I refrained from the ‘Mmmm…’ part.)
HIM: I don’t think we have ale.
ME: *sigh* Iced tea, please.

Yes, there was no ale at Steak and frickin’ ALE. Sucks to be me, I know. In spite of that, dinner was lovely and proceeded in an orderly fashion, until the inevitable reared its ugly head:


Pepperkat: My bicycle helmet’s cracked. I need a new one.
Mrs: You need a new helmet?
Me: You’ll need a spear to go with it…
Pepperkat: Spear and magic helmet!
Mrs: Spear and magic helmet?
Pepperkat: Magic helmet!
Mrs: Magic helmet?
Pepperkat: Yes, magic helmet! And I’ll give you a sample!
Me: *giggle* Shhh! We’re making a scene…
Mrs: Oh, but Westah, you’re so wovewy…
Me: Yes, I know it…I can’t help it…
Pepperkat: Oh, Brunhilde, be my wuuuuv!
Me: Um, check please!

    I personally would start a protest. Steak and Ale without Ale? There ought to be a law… wait! Deceptive advertising! That’s it! Run with it! 🙂

    I give up. First I can’t remember that Easy Mac’s got powdered cheese, now I call Guinness an ale… Being a wiseass is hard work!

    No ale (or stout) at Steak ‘n’ Ale? Kill the waiter, kill the waiter, kill the WAI-ter…
