Well, now! I KNEW I was special but …
I was at Olive Garden restaurant for dinner the other evening. The staff know me well, and call me by my first name: YOUR MAJESTY – uh .. I mean Helen. eh hem.
Since it wasn’t crowded, I got to sit in what I call ‘one of the COMFY chairs.’ They are the broad seat, arm rests on wheels – chairs. The seat available was in the middle of the dining area near a ceiling air vent – but I was happy for the COMFY chair, so I took it!
Before I got waited on I realized there was a booth available behind me. Not being a stranger to the place, I hopped out of my chair and found one of the hostesses with the NEW OLIVE GARDEN, ELECTRONIC HEADPHONE-HEADPIECES – they use to communicate more effectively on available seating.
She ‘GAVE ME AN AFFIRMATIVE’ on the booth being available. So as she and I started to transfer my napkin, silverware and menu over to the booth – she repeated into her headpiece-microphone:
‘HELEN IS MOVING FROM TABLE 85 TO BOOTH 83 … HELEN IS MOVING FROM TABLE 85 TO BOOTH 83′
I LAUGHED OUT LOUD – and said: GOSH! I FEEL LIKE THE CIA TALKING ABOUT THE LOCATION OF THE PRESIDENT! I talked into my wrist like a CIA agent saying: The president if moving, the president is moving. LOL!
They KNOW me and HUMOR me! What can I say?
When I was at a Thai restaurant I frequent – the other day at lunch- another frequent customer came over to joke (re: I always order off the menu and they make my food ‘just the way I like it’ – Thai Hot and spicy!) – he said: WHAT? Is she SPECIAL or something?
I laughed and said: YES I AM! YES, I AM, SPECIAL! The owner chimed in and affirmed: Helen IS Special! LOL!
So, with the PRESIDENTIAL TREATMENT at the Olive Garden and the Thai Palace affirmation –
I AM SPECIAL! I AFFIRM! I AM DESERVING OF THE BEST THAT LOVE AND LIFE HAVE TO OFFER! – - as we ALL are!
Here’s to all the people in the world – all the SPECIAL people – everyone! YOU’RE GREAT! AND DON’T YOU EVER FORGET IT!
