I am often good for a laugh, especially during wildy hectic times in my life.
Today was no exception.
My husband, Bob, and I stopped at a greasy spoon hot dog/BBQ shop for lunch.
Bob ordered his food and then stepped away in search of a restroom.
The gentleman behind the counter asked me, “Do you know what toppings your husband wants?”
I looked at the order and saw that my husband had ordered a footer.
I replied, “If you can tell me what kind of meat is in a footer I can tell you what toppings to put on it.”
The man’s response was a stare. I was confused.
I then approached it at a different angle, thinking he didn’t understand what I was asking. I said, “If you can point out the footer on the menu, I will know what toppings to have added to his sandwich.”
Again, the man stared at me, and this time with a very odd expression. I was growing uncomfortable.
Another employee stepped out of the kitchen and said, “Most people order their footers with sauce, cheese, and onions.”
I thought about it for a moment. I knew my husband would not like sauce on his foot long sub sandwich.
Then it dawned on me. Ohhhhhh…a footer. I was in a shop that specializes in foot long hot dogs, wasn’t I?
The brain was back in full gear!
Can you imagine what the guy was thinking when I asked what type of meat was in a footer?
Busyness with our businesses…beyond that I think we can call it mush!
Life without humor, where would we be?
