We have a thing for Waffle House. That could be their advertising slogan! To be honest, the slogan would have to be longer — “We have a thing for Waffle House but most people don’t.”
My favorite breakfast is eggs over easy, bacon, hash browns, wheat toast, and hot tea with cream. My wife likes grits. She likes waffles. We both like consistent quality and friendly service. On Day Ten of our 39-day loop around the USA, we stopped in Rayville, Louisiana, and found the same good experience we had found in Cartersville, Georgia.
After eating, I went outside to do what everyone does, photograph the underside of a billboard. Then I saw our waitress inside the restaurant waving to get my attention, to get her photo taken. She must have thought the window was transparent. Instead, my reflection is superimposed on her image, so it looks a bit like a second pair of hands is holding her face and that she is wearing khaki pants.
