“I’ll have the sauteed salmon with dill butter.” Madeline folded up her menu and passed it to the waitress.
“Alrighty, that comes with a soup or salad. Which one can I get you, hon?”
“Hmmm, I’m not sure. We’ve never been here before. What do you recommend?”
“Oh, I always recommend the soup. The soup is good! It’s honestly my favorite thing on the menu.”
“Wow, high praise! It’s decided, then.”
“Excellent choice, ma’am. You won’t be disappointed.” The waitress shifted her focus to Harold, who was still grimacing at the entrees section. “And you, hon?”
“Gimmie a minute. Still trying to figure out what I want.”
