Saturday Night Conversation
11am. Dave is back from a morning drive with Brig
Dave: Hey - guess what? Our favorite restaurant just opened up a few blocks away!
Carrie: Cafe Rio?
Dave: Pei Wei! We should go there for dinner tonight.
Carrie: Naw, we have all that left over white chicken chili. Let's just eat that.
6pm. Dave and Carrie just returning from a run
Dave: So what are you thinking for dinner tonight?
Carrie: I thought we were going to have chili.
Dave: Oh really? I thought we were going to Pei Wei.
Carrie: Well, it just seems like a waste of money with that delicious chicken chili just waiting for us in the fridge. We can go to Pei Wei another night this week.
6:30pm. Carrie is feeding Brig squash
Dave: So what time are we leaving for Pei Wei?
Dave: It's a Saturday night. We should hit the town as a family.
Carrie: I hate to buy dinner when we have so much food in the fridge...
Dave: But none of that food is Pei Wei spicy chicken.
Carrie: Fine. If it is that important to you, let's just go.
7:00pm. Carrie is putting Brig in his car seat.
Dave: If you don't want to go, we don't have to go.
Carrie: I'm happy to go.
Dave: Because just say the word, and we won't go.
Carrie: We are going!
7:15pm. Carrie and Dave arrive at Pei Wei. There is a giant sign saying the restaurant isn't open for another few days.
Dave: Crap. Is it not open?
Carrie: I don't know - look at all those people in there.
Dave: That is weird
Carrie: It has to be open
Dave: I'm going to go see what is going on...
Dave returns from checking to see if Pei Wei is open
Dave: They aren't open until Monday. But they are "practicing" tonight. They want to know if they can buy us 2 entrees, 2 appetizers, and 2 drinks so their wait staff can practice serving us.
Dave: Is that ok with you?
I will never question Dave again.
