Raise your hand if you went to Wendy’s to celebrate Father’s Day. We did! On Saturday we celebrated with big sister and family. Sunday I made a special Father’s Day breakfast so it seemed only right to top off the festivities with lunch at a restaurant. One of the perks of being older and eating at Wendy’s is this perk: free drinks for seniors. I am hoping this free drink for seniors thing will catch on at the Mexican restaurant near our house (margaritas) but I digress. Our family policy is that we don’t buy drinks when we eat out but opt for water. When Jake saw our iced tea, super-sized by an employee perhaps because it was Father’s Day, he said:
Jake: “Why do Mom and Dad get a drink?”
April: “They get it because they are seniors.”
Recent graduate Jake: “I’m a Senior!”
April: “Not that kind of Senior, silly………old people.”
Thanks for that concise explanation April.
