but he's 10... it's not possible really....

Postby cowboydan [OP] » April 21st 2011, 12:58am

so we went out for dinner tonight, nothing special. just the local bp's resturant. so we are checking out the the menu and my son says he wants the smokey mountain spaghetti and meatballs. i laughed and said when you grow up. he said that he could eat it and if he did he got 5 bucks. the order is big even for most adults (3.25lbs anyway). when the watress came to take our order, her eyes just went bugeyed and said ok then, you know it's really big? his mom said, well if you don't eat it all, your going to clean the house when you get home cause that's alot of money to waste on food. when the order was placed in front of him, he went bugeyed, and i laughed. guess what.... i just payed him five bucks. perfectly clean! i'm impressed and i'm a legend in my both my families. am i in trouble? yep

Dan: Just wait until he's a teenager. Start saving up for the grocery bill now, it won't be long. Just wait until he's ordering rubber coconuts for dessert. :o

I can't remember the exact age, but it was near there, maybe 14. My mom and step dad took me to Woody's BBQ for a birthday dinner. She said I could have anything I wanted. I ordered the feast for 4. That included 4 large drinks (and as many refills as I needed), also.
Needless to say I ate and drank every bit of it. And to this day I can eat a feast for 4 or 6 by myself.
