At Rise: Patient, Hungry Boy

Saturday, December 21st 2019

At Rise: The Oberhausers are out to a fancy restaurant with cousins and Pops. The orders are in and no food has yet hit the table.

Daddy: [nibbling the tiny garnish off the bamboo skewer from his cocktail] Hmm, a caper flower!

Boy: [excitedly and earnestly] Wait! There was something to eat!?!

[The meal unfolds in a parade of precious little “starter” plates with complex delicacies for family style sharing.  Finally arrives two big platters of roasted chicken.]

Boy: OH!  And it’s not just a SNACK!

Also Boy:


PS: Thanks for the wonderful meal and time, Pops!
