EVERYONE LIKES A GOOD JOINT

My brother and my son chatting about food:

"Have you ever had a Big Mac?"

"No, but I had a half-pounder."

"Really, where did you have that?"

"Some burger joint."

And later:

"What is that place?"

"That's Panda Express."

"What is it?"

"Chinese food."

"Oh, I thought that was a coffee joint."

Hmmm...


Seems to me I need to stop saying joint. Time to start introducing other, less offensive, words for restaurant. Maybe something like bistro, cafeteria, chophouse, hash house, noshery, pit stop, or tearoom.

I'm pretty sure I'm goin' with hash house.

How does one comment with a laugh and giggle. Oh this is a good one. I still use those terms. Joint, groovy, hooch.

I'm a chortler, myself! I'm glad you use groovy and hooch. I say "dig" all the time, too. My kids are still too young to realize how nerdy and out of date I am.

Thanks for visiting!
