choicesChoices, choices.

Next weekend is the start of Restaurant Week here in Madison, Wisconsin, Our Fair City. My Darling B has been pouring over menus to try to decide which ones she wants to go to, and has whittled it down to a ‘short list’ of thirty-seven dozen restaurants, more restaurants than are actually participating in Restaurant Week. There’s a quantum theory to explain how this is possible, but I never went any further than high school science, dammit, so I don’t know how she did that.

I, on the other hand, have only glanced at the available choices and have not made any list at all, because they all look good to me. My list would be their list. I want to go to all the restaurants and eat all the food.

But we have just one week and we can only go to lunch and/or dinner, so we could eat twelve meals at the most. Then we’d have to go home and cry for all the meals we couldn’t eat. It’s a bittersweet event.

    “I want to go to all the restaurants and eat all the food.”

    And the problem is?…

    The problem is: wallet moths. When Calvin’s dad pays the plumber for yanking a toy boat out of the toilet, for instance, he’s holding a significant number of bills in one hand and his open wallet in another hand and, just to make sure we know there’s nothing else in there, the artist has added a moth flying in a little curlicue up out of the wallet. We can only eat at so many places before those damn wallet moths appear.

    Pshaw. You’re a public sector employee! You’re rolling in dough!
