And now a word from our waitress…

About one a month, we go out to dinner with two other couples. We all have kids, but we don’t bring them. Therefore, it is a bit of a production to pull this off. We try to go to a different place each time, which is easy around here. It is a bit of a Dinner Club, if you will.

This past weekend, we went to what is now my new Favorite Italian Place.

It is a cozy little place, with great food, and creme brulee for dessert.

We started with a bottle of wine. The waitress asked, “how many glasses?”. Five – Ms. Kaz was not having any this night. The wine was a nice, if a bit young, Valpolicella. Then we ordered.

Let me state here that Ms. Kaz and I were never good at Making Announcements. We don’t crave the limelight, we never know exactly how to do it, so we usually put it off.

So, Ms. Kaz starts by ordering a salad, “Can I get it without the Gorgonzola, please?”

“Sure!” the waitress says, “Are you pregnant?”

All eyes turn to Ms. Kaz.

“Yeah,” answers Ms. Kaz, “how did you know?”

Our waitress says, “Well, no wine, no gorgonzola…” Either she’s been pregnant before, or they get a lot of pregnant women at this restaurant.
And that’s how our friends came to know – via the waitress.

And now, our waitress has let you all know, as well.

    Congrats! She may be eating for two, but it sounds like you’ll be getting double helpings of wine and moldy cheese.

    That’s great news! Congratulations!

    We learned of a dear friend’s pregnancy much the same way – she skipped the glass of wine during a dinner out. That was a big flashing neon sign that something was up!

  9. Dude! Kaz Baby X! That is AWESOME! More wine & sushi for you… oh wait, well, more wine & soft cheeses for you, anyway.

    Seriously man, I am really excited for the both of you.

  10. Really, all three of you!

  11. Hygiene Dad says:

    That’s fantastic. Congrats!

  12. L.A. Daddy says:

    You too?! Very cool. Congrats and we’re hoping for the best for you.

    [Kaz: I read about your news last week and I thought, oh, man — I’d better wait so I don’t steal his thunder! 😉 ]
