Andrew asked if he could have a "go out for dinner date" for his birthday.
He chose the Chinese buffet.
Dad had no objections.
(Neither did Mom.)
Of all the things offered,
he chose cantaloupe and chicken-on-a-stick
over and over again.
His drink of choice?
A little bit of each one from the self-serve fountain pop.
It was fun for him to be with "just us"
and equally fun for Dennis and I to be with "just him."
