When SHR and I first moved to our new neighborhood last spring, I began to take the bus to school every morning. The bus stop is right in front of a church. I was struck by the listing for the Mother's Day Diner sign last spring. "Hah," I thought, "Those Frenchies don't know how to spell dinner!"
I was happy to see the listing reappear last month to promote this year's Mother's Day Diner. Even with a year to look up the word, they still could not spell it correctly.
I mentioned this to SHR and she thinks that I am dead wrong. Her theory, "It is a 50's diner theme where the girls wear poodle skirts and the waitresses are all called Mabel and Tootsie and have red hair and they serve all the moms in the congregation. You know a 50's themed diner for Mom!"
I like her theory much more than mine. But why is it on Tuesday and not on Sunday? That really confuses me. The Lord does work in mysterious ways I suppose. I also like that the 21st is Church Day. Isn't everyday Church Day at the church?
I'm tempted to peek my head in the church tomorrow after 4 to see if I can spy any red-haired waitresses named Tootsie serving the congregation cassoulet and other Frenchie stuff.
