eating again

This afternoon we had a "working lunch" at one of our fine eating establishments. When I placed my order for a sandwich with a side of thick-cut potatoes, the waitress made a face and shook her head.

Me: "What?!"

Waitress: "Unfortunately, we ran out of potatoes."

Me: "Already? It's only 12:30!"

Waitress: "Oh no, we ran out last week."

So, no side of potatoes. But it was an enjoyable lunch. And my second "real" meal in a week!
