On the second night of BlogHer, my true love gave to me – I mean, a group of us decided to get some dinner at the hotel. It was a warm night, so we got a table outside right along the river. We were perusing the offerings on the menu, when our waitress came over to ask us what drinks we wanted. I was feeling indulgent and decided on a chocolate malt.
"We’re out of ice cream", she blankly told me.
Ok, how about a root beer.
"Diet", she asked.
No, regular I replied, still feeling a bit indulgent.
"Diet", she said. "It’s all we have."
My friend, Renee, asked for a glass of white wine, only to find out they were all out of that too.
"And don’t order any salads", she told us, "because we're out of lettuce."
Ok, so let’s approach this from a different angle I though, and asked - What do you have?
“We’ve got burgers and fries. Work with that. I’ll be back.” Then she turned around and walked away.
