Water at Restaurants

DISCLAIMER
Me, talking about this post: "I have a thing written, but it's stupid."
My friend: "Guess what? Stupid stuff is good."


Restaurants always posed a challenge to me when I was younger.

I've never been particularly good at sitting still, for one.  Secondly, I would pester my siblings and parents to play tic-tac-toe with me on my napkin while they were trying to order.  Moreover, I believed that "put your napkin in your lap" and other table manners did not apply to me.  But none of these compared to the water.

Before we ordered, I would watch the waiter or waitress gracefully fill my glass full to the brim with fresh, ice cold water.  But, by the end of the night, I would have barely made a change in the volume of water inside the glass.  I would have to walk away from a nearly full glass of water.  All that perfectly good water, wasted!

I have a clear memory of the first time I drained all the water from a glass.  There I was, bathed in a glorious light of self-importance, when the waitress stopped by the table, pitcher in hand.  Smiling an ever-polite, dream-crushing smile, she filled the water glass up again.


World peace and love,
Heather
