Where the boys and girls are

So say you have some friends who live in Hyde Park and have young children and you haven't seen them for awhile. Stop by Noodles and Company on Wasson Road. You'll probably run into them. I stopped in for dinner last night before going grocery shopping (I spent $7 on dinner so I wouldn't go to biggs hungry and spend more.) The place was packed with families with kids--mostly under 10. They were all pretty well-behaved, too. I enjoyed being there, watching the little family dramas that are no longer part of my life -sigh-

Anyway, I know why all those families are there. Easy-they've got buttered noodles on the menu. A whole generation of picky American children is growing up on buttered noodles. And macaroni and cheese, which is also on the menu. (We used to go out to Skyline because the kids could have spaghetti and cheese. They seem to have turned out alright. )Meanwhile, the adults can have something more sophisticated like sate peanut noodles.

I have posted info about Noddles & Co.. Sometimes I love them, sometimes they frustrate me. No matter what, I love my pasta!

If you have young children and haven't seen them in a while, shouldn't you contact authorities instead of going to a restaurant?

Did you figure that out all by yourself with your master's degree?

You're amazing!

Must defend myself: I said "If you have friends with young kids and you haven't seen them in awhile. . . .

That whole Masters Degree crap is getting really old. Perhaps you think you're being clever, but you're not. Move on please.

Polly, the sentence is still awkward, but I love you all the same.

Having a master's degree means I am far more clever than you all, so it does not surprise me that the rest of you - minimum wage earning huddled masses that you are - are unable to comprehend just how clever I actually am. Just like unnecessary/snarky comments, my input never grows old. Treasure it, because in many moderated blogs, you'd not have the unbridled pleasure of my verbal companionship.
