Do You Have a Spoon?

229. Do You Have a Spoon ?

I came upon this true story this week. David, my son, and Lila, his wife, and I were at Ocean City and had gone for breakfast at this pretty nice restaurant on the boardwalk. Lila asked for a spoon for her coffee and the waitress said, “We don’t have spoons.” She walked off and we spent the next 15 minutes imagining why they wouldn’t have spoons—saving money? some family tragedy involving spoons and it was cheaper to not have spoons than to provide therapy for the family?

We ate breakfast—good blueberry pancakes—and as the waitress brought us our check I said, “Just as a matter of curiosity, why don’t you have spoons?” The waitress got a puzzled look on her face and said, “We have spoons.” Lila said, “I asked for a spoon.” The waitress said, “Oh I thought you said: Could I have a scone!”

Some stories last for a very long time and sometimes just a word or two brings them back in all their hilarity. And suddenly you’re in Ocean City around a table brainstorming why a restaurant doesn’t have spoons.

Whatever!
