Overheard at Lunch



INT. HARD ROCK CAFE - DAYTIME

The waiter, WES, walks up to the table where CKL and D are seated. If Wes isn't a roadie or in a garage band, he's sure got the look down: tattoos, do-rag, sideburns.

WES
How're you guys doing today?

D
(cheerfully)
Good! How are you?

WES
I'm excellent. Living the dream.

D
You've always dreamed of being a waiter?


Wes stares at her for a moment, then looks over to CKL.

WES
We got a smart-aleck here?


He wasn't actually offended; that exchange turned out to be a great conversation starter. We found out that waiting tables is just his day job, he does "music stuff," he cooks at home for his girlfriend, and he just got the air conditioning in his car fixed. He even drew us a little cartoon at the end of our meal:

D is brave. I think I'd worry about getting punched, but I gather that D assessed that (and correctly so) before letting clever comments fly :-D
