The Kindness of Strangers

This past week Norm took me on a date to try out a new fast food eatery in Mesa.   It’s called Culver’s and they’ve been around for eons in places like Wisconsin and other Midwestern states.   It was really crowded at lunch time on a Wednesday afternoon so we had to wait for a table to open after we had ordered our food at the counter.   I went out onto the covered patio to look for an available table, but they were all taken so I just sat there and waited for an open table.   The  outdoor dining furniture was not what you would find at most fast food places and it looked more like folding round tables and chairs one would find at a VFW hall.   Since they only opened a week ago, I guess the traditional patio furniture hadn’t arrived yet.

After a few minutes of me just sitting there, two kind ladies offered to share their very large table with me.   Wasn’t that sweet?   Norm came out with our drinks and found me sitting with two old ladies.   He had a strange look on his face, but once I explained to him their kind offer, he warmed up.

I wish I could say the food was really good, but what I ordered was not.   I had chili cheese fries and they were the worst ones I’ve ever had in my life!   It was a cold tomato paste, not chili. Norm had a hamburger and said it was good.   We decided to try their frozen custard and it was delicious!   So I may go back just for that.
