Happy birthday, sweet 16!

My baby girl turned 16 today.  My dad drove down from Egypt, Arkansas, to spend the afternoon and evening with her – and take her out to dinner.

Her choice of restaurant.

So, does she choose one of the nicer restaurants in town like the Purple Parrot, 206 Front or Walnut Circle Grill? Or maybe some pizza at Jaybird’s or gyros at Old Athens Grill? Sushi at Sakura?

Well, no. None of the above.

We ate dinner at Waffle House. Really. And party of five (Fiona, my dad, Simon, Fiona’ boyfriend Branden, and me) doesn’t quite fit in a booth at Waffle House, but we squeezed in and made do.

“It’s our thing,” Fiona said. “That’s where Poppy and I always go.”

Ah well. It’s her birthday, not mine. And she enjoyed it.

That’s the main thing.
