From the imaginary archives

I’ve just spent a harrowing couple of hours having Isaac help me sort and weed three years’ worth of his old school papers.  (What made it harrowing was that to alleviate his boredom, Isaac kept doing annoying repetitive things, like saying “Sningalate” over and over again, and Mabel was supposed to be cleaning in the same room but her jealousy of the more interesting paper-sorting project was causing her to be completely distracted (which was driving ME to distraction.)  Also, I forgot to eat lunch today and let’s just say that if you were my kid and you wanted to ask a favor of me this might NOT be the moment to do so.)

So anyway, in the midst of the paper-shuffling, I found the following.  Maybe three years ago, we ate at a little grill-type restaurant that was small and dark and somewhat uninviting, and which also had very little traffic that night.  The restaurant had feedback cards on the tables, and Isaac filled one out.  Before we left, I made Dean stealthily copy verbatim what Isaac had written:

“bigger capacity means more customers in the resteraunt! (a tip)”

    Does that mean the service was so poor he offered a literal tip?

    I remember that one. I loved it then, I love it now.
