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