Depends on your definition of quiet

Yesterday I was out at lunch. Not having a lot of time, I ran into the closest McDonalds for a salad.

Yes, I voluntarily went to McDonalds.

Without the kids.

And I really did get a salad. But I digress.

I sat down across from a mother and her two small boys, probably 6 and 4. They were typical boys, looking at trucks out the window, begging to play with the Happy Meal toys, squirming as if they had a veritable army of ants in their pants…

You know, typical boy stuff.

When they were leaving, their mother, noticing me eating lunch by myself, stopped and said in a most sincere voice “I am really sorry if we disturbed your quiet lunch.”

I immediately responded:

“Ma’am, I am the father of five years old twins. This is a quiet lunch for me.”

    Hey, “quiet” is relavent. For me, it’s when my telephone isn’t ringing, or if you can believe it, while I’m driving, especially on the GW Parkway.

    Ah, perspective. It’s a beautiful thing. P.S. I’m assuming the salad is related to the P90X thing? How’s that going for ya?
