waffle house

i always wanted to eat at a waffle house but my mom told me it was a greasy spoon
and it turned me off. it's so weird the things that stick in my head.

they're all over florida and there was one across from my hotel room in orlando.
i had begun making jokes about them the minute i arrived. "oh, my room is right across
the street from the waffle house." they are more or less on every corner.

anyway, i still haven't eaten at one and when i told my mom, she said,
"oh, they are a greasy spoon but they're so delicious!"


i still skipped it. i was feeling fat.
