Chez Shoney's


It's been that sort of a day.

Blame it on the painkillers.

Blame it on the fact that sometimes it doesn't take much to amuse the 'chick.

Lunch today was at Shoney's, a truly American institution.

Overheard at the salad bar:
"I've come up with a new slogan for Shoney's."
"Really? What is it?"
"Shoney's. Where fat people come to eat."

The 'chick had to walk away, and quickly because just a few moments before that she was looking around at her fellow diners and had silently made the same observation. It's something to do with the All-U-Can-Eat-Buffet at lunch. Not that the 'chick doesn't love her some All-U-Can-Eat from time to time.

Also seen at Shoney's, across the windows:

Chicken Shakes
Tea Salads
Coffee Desserts

Now, the 'chick suspects that these were to be taken separately but, you see, Patient Reader, that is NOT how the 'chick read them at all. Tea salads and coffee desserts might just be all right. Chicken shakes, however - nope, nuh uh, no way. No thanks.

All-you-can eats were a favorite when I was pregnant. Now, they are just downright dangerous - especially if there's a dessert section!

Hope your head is feeling better!

Yes, the migraine seems to have retreated, thanks! Now, if it will only STAY away...

Funny, when the 'chick was pregnant with Rockboy, it was all Taco Bell, all the time. If they had a buffet...well, let's just say there would be a LOT more Roadchick. A LOT more.
