I Know They Were Glad To…

….see us leave…at the buffet we visited during the Epic Road Trip of 2012

We all have bucket lists.

Mine consists of things like swimming with dolphins, seeing the Grand Canyon, and visiting Graceland.

You know, cool stuff.

Hubby’s bucket list is shorter, visit the ocean, fart the ‘William Tell Overture’, etc.

It’s now one item shorter.

He’s always said he wanted to feast at an all-you-can-eat lobster buffet.

Well, we found one during our road trip and boy did he feast.

When he piled the first three whole lobsters on his plate the buffet-person glared at him.

Apparently the sign that says “Take ONE lobster at a time, please” is there for a reason.

And hubby is beyond reason.

After the glare-fest he’d go back and get one lobster at a time and then send me up to get another at the same time.

Soon I noticed many eyes following us up and back, up and back, as we visited the buffet taking no notice of the other tasty items offered and zeroing in on the whole lobsters.

The only reason he ate a dozen lobsters was because he could.

He ate a dozen whole lobsters.

Twelve.

I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to find on a return trip new signage that reads – “All-You-Can-Eat Lobster Buffet, Except You Crazy Texan With A Seemingly Hollow Leg”

His picture will be posted next to the sign.

He’ll be holding up two lobsters and wearing one of those silly bibs.

It’ll be a proud moment for the whole family.
