Have you ever been a Ditto Diner? You know what that is – eating at the same place twice in the same day. Ditto dining doesn’t happen often, but in my rural and restaurant-restricted corner of the world, it is always a possibility. So last week, I was a Ditto Diner.
After a morning clinic away from the office, my co-workers and I enjoyed lunch at a favorite local place known for it’s mouth-watering menu. Personally, I like the half-salads. They have only half the greens but a full-salad amount of tasty toppings. After all, lettuce can’t hold a candle to bacon… That being said, the half Cobb salad with honey-mustard dressing was very yummy indeed. Please see Exhibit A.
At the end of the workday, my husband and I arrived home at the same time. I was tired and he was hungry. Round one of Rock-Paper-Scissors determined that we were eating out rather than subsisting on cold cereal. Round two determined he was choosing the restaurant. And thus I became a Ditto Diner. In and of itself, that’s not bad. I just didn’t want to be a Ditto Diner with the same waitress. Awkward!
While the half-salads are not to be missed, neither is breakfast. And what is better for dinner than breakfast? I recommend the French toast. It comes with a little cup of fluffy butter, assorted fruity syrups, and good ol’ fashioned warm maple syrup. Please see Exhibit B.
If you can, please try to be a Ditto Diner soon. It is a full-filling experience.
Two items of note: The diet Coke was simply a calorie neutralizer. You will also notice bacon in both exhibits. In my defense, I only ate the salad bacon. The dog ate the entire amount of ditto dining bacon as a reward for not chewing up the car interior while she waited for her humans.
