Just when I think I have seen it all…
Last night Suzanne and I decided to stop by a local all-night restaurant for a little desert and coffee. Actually I had coffee and Suzanne had a diet Coke, but that isn’t important to the story.
There was an episode of the Andy Griffith Show called Eat Your Heart Out (Season 6 Episode 24) where Goober has fallen for a new waitress, Flora, at the diner and he introduces Andy to her. Goober wants Andy to tell Flora how strong and handsome, etc. Goober is. Well, instead of falling for Goober, Flora falls for Andy. Andy already has a steady girlfriend, Helen, by this time.
When Flora goes to serve Andy and Goober their meals, she wants to give Andy the larger portion. As it turns out, the larger portion is in the hand closest to Goober so she crosses her arms to serve the meatloaf. This seems rather goofy and juvenile, but funny for a sit-com.
Last night Suzanne and I saw it happen in real life. It was so blatantly obvious as to be funny, sad, and pathetic. When the waitress brought our apple crisp, she actually crossed her arms so that she served me the larger portion. It really happened. I can’t image why this woman would do that, but she did. Here is an Andy Griffith episode playing out in real life.
