Here is a lesson in geography for you all...
Server: "I love your accent."
The German: "Thank you."
Server: "Is there something going on here? I've seen so many of your people lately."
To borrow a phrase from my pal 'coma ** crickets **
Server: "What brought you here?"
Me: "To Waffle House?"
Server: "No, him... To America..."
Me: "Um, well he lives here and he is married to me, an American..."
Server: "Oh, well there has just been so many of them lately..."
Server: "How did you two meet?"
The German: "My brother introduced us."
At this point I make a mental note that I going to tell people we met at a bar last week and ran off to Vegas to elope or that I put an extra dollar in his G-string when he was performing with the Chippendale's and he was smitten. But alas, I had not had coffee yet so not all the synapses were firing and I could not verbalize this random thought...
Ten minutes pass...
Server: "I love English accents..."
