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.


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.

  1. Epic πŸ˜€ I’m going to have to add that to my bucket list, too. I’ve never had a lobster buffet. It’ll go along side my other, much more aspiring items, such as “Walk on the Great Wall” and “Visit Crete.”

  2. I was not aware that such a thing as an all-you-can-eat lobster buffet existed anywhere. And a “one at a time” policy at an all-you-can-eat buffet is surely in the “rules made to be broken” category. Good times.

  3. I am in awe of Hubby; I’ve never even eaten one whole lobster, much less a dozen.

  4. Oh lord, Mr. Eyebrows and I would soooo have joined you in the take-more-than-one-at-a-time behavior! Heehee! When we take our first retirement road trip in 2015, I hope we are lucky enough to find that place.
