Bored to Hell With Burgers

The idea of one more burger for lunch is making me just sick. When did hamburgers become the only lunch choice for people who work 9 to 5? Doesn’t anybody go out to a full service restaurant and just order a real meal and enjoy a proper lunch any more?

When I was a kid, my dad used to invite the family out to lunch with him a couple of times every month. It was always exciting to get dressed up pretty and go to his office. We were paraded around the building and introduced to new employees and expected to exchange pleasantries with the employees we already knew.

Then we went to a nice restaurant for a proper meal. We were given menus and allowed to choose whatever we wanted to order. The only catch was that we were expected to eat the whole thing, and if we couldn’t finish the meal, it was put in a box and taken home and that was our next dinner. That would not have meant as much to any of us if all we did was drive through a fast food joint and get a hamburger.

Meet Me for Lunch

We were talking at lunch about the best place to meet someone for the first time. So many first dates seem to focus on dinner and a movie. I sometimes don’t want to spend that much time with someone on a first or second date. Especially if you have only chatted online a few times or had friends set you up on a blind date.

I think that a good first date is a lunch date. Now, I’m all up for a free dinner. But lunch is so much more casual, so limited on time, and still daylight out. I think it makes for a better chance to get to know someone and see if there is any chemistry.
