It Sounded Good on Paper

I hope you had a great weekend!

We did. My husband and I drove 3 1/2 hours to go to a basketball game at our alma mater.

We lost. 🙁 But we got to reconnect with some old friends and play around at our old stomping grounds. 🙂

We spent most of our time in town saying, “We didn’t have anything like this when we were here!”

You know you’re getting old when that happens.

While there, we decided we would try a new swanky steakhouse that had just opened days before.

As we waited for our table at the restaurant, we noted that most of the others waiting for their tables were students with their parents.

This town IS the university and since most students have absolutely no money, who else can afford to eat there?

Our meal was lovely, but $220 later I decided I would rather have eaten my steak at home.

There would have been no wait and for less than a third of the cost I could have had my steak EXACTLY the way I like it–Teriyaki sauce and all.

So, good luck dear steakhouse. You’ll need it.

I think I will prepare your obituary . . . just in case.
