The Adventures of Restaurant Dining

So we splurged today
with a family dinner
at a restaurant.

Both twins were antsy
from being hungry and bored.
"Please entertain us!"

The plastic wrappers
from their bendy milk cup straws . . .
. . . what delightful toys.

For tickling noses
and for playing keep-away
until the food came.

Jake sat and colored
his placemat with three crayons.
"I need a red one!"

"Not one more french fry
until you eat more chicken."
The slowest eater.

"I'm getting too full."
"What're we having for dessert?"
"The strawberry's mine!"

Had milk spat on me.
"Um . . . we need more napkins, please."
We all survived though.
