Debi, the waitress, and me
What happened in Sonora that day when was unholy heck to pay when caught by scornful waitress with the wrong woman.
Click on headline to see how the writer escaped this one and wife's reaction.
By JG Gee
A few days ago marked the birthday of a sweet friend who passed before attaining her 50th birthday. At Western, Debi was my and Mrs. G's dear friend as well as my a co-worker in the Advising Center, and, on occasion, a co-conspirator in campus capers. Her decidedly off-beat sense of humor was chicken soup for the soul, and her wit, well-seasoned with wry observation and Hart County drollery, brightened many a day in the Advising Center.
A favorite memory is of the evening she, Mrs. Gee, and I decided to meet for supper at our collective favorite hangout in Bowling Green, the Barbecue Inn. I forget the circumstances, but for some reason, Debi and I went together in her car, and my wife drove separately. Debi and I got there first, found a booth, and seated ourselves, all the while continuing whatever conversation we'd begun in the car.
The waitress picked right up on the fact that the female with me wasn't my accustomed darlin' companion. Over to our booth she stomped, slapped down the placemats and menus, gave me the glaring stank eye of disapproval, and, much like a cat greeting a stray dog of questionable repute, hissed, "And will your WIFE be joining you?"--and flounced off.
Debi and I got so tickled we very nearly inhaled our cigarettes, nearly a quarter of century later, Mrs. G and I still get a good laugh out of it now and anon.
