I had the
a monkey wrench thrown in my schedule pleasure of taking Nate to the orthodontist yesterday because a piece popped off of his braces. It’s about an hour and a half round trip. It ended up being the highlight of my day.
On the way home Nate was surfing through the radio stations and landed on a station playing music by Steve March Torme, Doris Day, Patti Page, Count Basie, Joe Williams and others. And he left it there! Then he began to tell me about the classy resturaunt he was going to open someday. It will have white tablecloths, candlelight, and live jazz music playing. The lights will be low and he will float through the room in his tuxedo asking his guests if they are enjoying their meal. His waiters will also wear tuxedos, and have tiny waxed mustaches. They will also speak with fake British accents, making it sound impressive when they take orders. I asked him why not hire real British people? According to Nate that would be too expensive. In order to dine there you would have to be wearing the appropriate attire or be turned away.
I’m telling you with the music playing in the background and his funny, sweet descriptions…well, I was transported. I was sitting at a table with a crisp white cloth and a pool of candlelight. Gently tapping my heel clad toes to the music and feeling swept up in a warm ambiance.
Just listen to this, close your eyes, and see where it takes you…
