More birthday bang
Had a nice evening yesterday. As I mentioned before, my boyfriend, his sister and his brother all have birthdays within a week of each other, he and his brothers being on the same day. We went out to Outback last night to celebrate all three.
Good fellowship and a lot of laughter was involved. There’s a lot to be said for having little to zero drama in one’s family. Okay, I know there’s no such thing as NO drama with a family, but at least I realize now you can get pretty damn close. I guess what I was used to dealing with in the past makes me appreciate this more than the average person. Bottom line, I just prefer not being in the position of worrying about if a loose cannon is gonna blow, or taking those hidden right hooks while remaining silent out of respect. It’s pretty simple, really – and I like things simple and non-chaotic.
The staff at Outback really went out of their way to accommodate us, especially when they learned of three siblings at the table that were there to celebrate their birthdays. Upon finishing our meals (and with the birthday boys and girl each having a celebratory Patrone double tequila shot) the waiter came back to take the plates. My guy’s brother’s wife suggested that instead of the birthday dessert they were scheduled to bring out, why don’t they switch it up and bring them out a birthday tequila shot. We really didn’t think they would go along with it, but hey, you can ask, right? Up next came the manager of the restaurant with shots for all of them on a tray – so funny!! THAT’S called pleasing your patrons. It’s also what brings them return visits, and here’s a place that actually recognizes that.
