Having Dinner with the Forces of Chaos

Last night Tirithien and I went to dinner with my baby brother. (Baby Brother is not-quite-14.)

I wasn’t nearly as nervous as I was when Tirithien met my mom, but I was still a little anxious. After all, a young teenage boy is a capricious thing, ever-changing in mood and word!

As it turned out, I needn’t have worried at all. They hit it off beautifully. I was thrilled! My brother and I are very close, in spite of our rather large age difference, or maybe because of it. So if he and the man I love become friends, that makes life so much the better for me. We can all enjoy each other’s company.

Of course, a large part of their non-stop conversation (I swear, you’d think they’d known each other for years) consisted of stories of pranks, strange ways of making people squirm, and other various forms of mischief. I’m quite sure that this is why the restaurant hostess seated us WAY back in the back corner, so we wouldn’t scare the other patrons. I’m also wondering how much chaos might ensue if my boyfriend and brother join forces. It could get messy! :-)

The three of us, we will make a waitron cry someday. :-)

A waitron? You're setting your sights too low, my dear!

I admit I had to look up the word waitron. Alas, there is no definition in my dictionary. Care to enlighten?

Bainwen Gilrana said...

It's a gender-neutral form of waiter or waitress. Now, why he can't just say "server" is an unknown. :-P

Ah, I get it. I thought something along those lines, but one never knows. I had to find out ~ I just hate not knowing something. LOL

Are you sure you want these two together!? Sounds dangerous to me. ;)

It may well be a very dangerous thing. I might rue that day!

My mom said my brother talked pretty much non-stop about how cool Tirithien is the entire next day!
