Back in the day when Kevin and I both worked at Delphi, we used to go to this restaurant at least once a week. Orchid Cafe, yummy Thai food. And every week, I would order the same thing.
C9 Chicken Medium, minus broccoli, plus white onions.
I ordered it so often, that I'm surprised they didn't just change the menu to my specifications.
And Kev almost always ordered
C9 Chicken Medium (no special requests, because that's way too high maintenance for him. He doesn't share the Burger King philosophy that you can have it your way....not even AT Burger King!)
And almost every week, the same waitress or two would wait on us and they came to know what we wanted. All they would have to say is "The Usual?"
Well, we haven't been to this restaurant together in almost two years. But today we went. And there was the same waitress.
And she said, "Haven't seen you two in here in a long time. The Usual?"
It had been so long, that I had kind of forgotten what the usual was. So I was looking at the menu and located C9 just as the waitress was saying "C9, Chicken Medium, minuuuuuus broccoli, plus white onions."
Yes, the usual.
