It can get too early for wait staff, too. This morning at 7:30, BigEd and I were in Dennys. The waitress, order pad in hand, came over and asked if we would like something to drink before we ordered. Coffee and diet coke were our answers.

The penny finally dropped and she tap danced about having just come in.
She needed that cup of coffee more than I did . . .
