Haven't we all done stupid and embarrassing things at restaurants? Come on...haven't we? Don't leave me hanging here. I can't be the only one.
Haven't we all picked up a ketchup bottle and given it a good shake (because nobody likes that watery stuff that comes out first if the bottle isn't properly shaken), only to send the cap (that another party at our table thoughtfully loosened but UNthoughtfully failed to mention) flying over to a neighboring table, surprising that table's occupant and narrowly missing his coffee cup?
I thought so.
My friend, Rich, told me about an incident he had experienced.
He was a widower and so, on occasion, found himself eating alone at a fast food restaurant. On this particular day, he was visiting "the Colonel" for a chicken dinner. He was seated in a booth behind two older ladies that were facing each other. The one with her back to Rich had light yellow, extra fluffy hair.
As I'm sure you realize, chicken can be a tricky thing to eat. As Rich was using his fork to tear his chicken off the bone, a piece of the chicken suddenly broke loose and catapulted directly into the back of the head of the lady whose back was to Rich, landing smack dab in the center of the light yellow, extra fluffy hair.
Not knowing what else to do, Rich continued eating his chicken dinner, hoping that the lady with the chicken in her hair wouldn't realize it. Apparently, she didn't, because she and her friend continued talking and laughing together as they enjoyed their meals.
Rich didn't waste any time finishing his meal and getting out of there. But he said he's often wondered what that lady thought when she got home and found that piece of chicken in her hair.
I just hope she wasn't one of those ladies who get their hair done once a week and don't touch it in between visits to the stylist.
