There's a Story Here

Dinner at a neighbourhood restaurant with friends. The kitchen area was separated from the dining area by a counter. Our table abutted the counter. As the owner prepared desserts, they were nose level to two of the diners at our table. My friend kept jokingly pretending to snatch a dessert for our table.

Well - a nearby table was celebrating a birthday and they had brought this rich, chocolate cake. After the pieces were brought to their table, the other owner, with a sleight of hand, deposited this piece on our table. But we were not to tell - as the other table had asked for the remainder of the cake to be wrapped up. With great laughter (and four spoons) we each indulged.

We enjoyed the meal, though many of the menu items were richer than the food I like. Will we go back to the restaurant? Of course - it is a delight to eat in a place where the owners have a sense of humour, where the customers are more than a source of revenue.
