The wait person brought around checks for those who had ordered alcohol; mine was $10.67 (inc. tip), so I put a $20 bill in the folder and when she asked if I wanted change....I answered yes, rather emphatically. And then.....
And then? I forgot about my change and left before she returned to the table. It was a good margarita, but it wasn't worth $20. I cannot believe I did that. It didn't hit my brain until I was pulling into the garage that I had left money 'on the table', so to speak.
My friend Pam and I split an appetizer. It was asparagus, tomatoes and pine nuts grilled with olive oil, topped with a sunny-side up egg. It was delicious! My entree was lemon-garlic shrimp with angel hair pasta and it was excellent. I finished off the meal with carrot cake, since I prefer that to cheesecake.
It was a very nice meal and I was with some fun people - but $20 for one drink? No way.....never again.
(They say confession is good for the soul, but I don't feel any better for having told you.....LOL)
