As I was pouring in some half & half into my coffee, this lady that looked to be in her mid 70's said in the the most excited voice,
"I'm soooo delighted to see you using half & half! Oooooh! It's just good to see. You know, young people don't really use half & half these days."
"Really? Haha...well, I'm afraid I like milk in my iced coffee, and it was either this or skim, and the choice just seemed obvious to me! ;)"
"I completely agree, dear!! All those other people are into that non-fat-soy stuff...you just made my day!"
...I was still laughing to myself about that exchange as I went back to my seat only to notice she and her husband were at the table next to me. They seemed to be having a very business-like "meeting" over what I assumed was a budget until I heard...
Her: So, now we're onto the issue of coupons. Now dear, we have that movie ticket that Tom gave us that we really should use this weekend.
Him: Well, I do love...ugh...what's that crazy blue fish, dear?.....Neto?...
Her: Oh, Nemo?
Him: Yeah. (laughing)...ooooooh man, she makes me laugh! We should see what theatre that's playing in.
Her: Well, honey, I wouldn't think they would be playing that movie in the theatre anymore.
Him: Really? Well that's strange.
Her: Not really.
Him: Well, I do love that little guy with the wooden nose....you know, the puppet...
I was doing everything within my power not to jump into their conversation and ask if I could hang out with them this weekend!!
Well I don't know what "Dear" and "Honey" are going to end up doing, but I can't help but wish I could be a part. They make getting older look rather delightful.
Hope you have a good weekend!!
