In town we eat at a restaurant

Playing restaurant with the kindergartners inadvertently turned into a lesson on speaking politely.

Oh the customer was fine.

The server just wasn’t quite to my liking.

I politely pointed out that “What do you want!” was not how servers in fine establishments take customers’ orders. And that bedroom was certainly a fine establishment (instead of chips and salsa? cookies! with salsa…!).

“What do you want, please!” was not much better, but all right, grins for using the magic word.

He took a deep breath and tried again.

And again.

And again.

He consulted his younger sister, who, regrettably, was not much help.

And then he got it!

“What do you want to menu, please?”

To menu?

Oh close enough, and I would like the cheese, bean, and guacamole burrito, please.

Thank you.
