Well, if you are overseas, you might have heard there was a Super Bowl… if you live here in the US–well–DUH!
One of the ads during the game announced free breakfast at a chain restaraunt called Denny’s. All their branches in all of the US from 6 am to 2 pm. Well, Rich and I thought that might be fun to do. We were sorry that Emily couldn’t join us–she had to be in school. But Andrea was able to.
When we got there, around 9 am, there was already a line of at least 50 people in front of us. I got out to stand in line (because I wanted to) while Rich and Andrea looked for a parking place. They drove around and around. Some 10 minutes or so later they joined me in line. Most of the people in line were college students or retirees. We all joked with each other, chatted, and laughed. It sounds crazy, but it was kind of fun. True it was cold and I was freezing… but there was such a nice atmosphere.
After about 30 minutes of waiting, we finally got a table. Service was great, food just as nice, and breakfast was really free – for all of us. We wanted to purchase beverages, but they were all with free refills, even the cappucino for Andrea! I can’t explain it–totally crazy and just plain fun!
Don’t believe it? Take a look. The local TV stations were all there!
Now here is the fun part. All the way home I was humming a happy melody to myself. Suddenly realized I’d never heard it before. So when I got home I sat down and wrote out the notes, so I don’t forget. I’m sure the words will come. For now, just plain Hallelujah.
