Dining Out Means Dining In

After eating dinner at a local Italian restaurant, Bill commented on the pleasant patio eating area as we were walking back to the car.

“It’s nice out here, we should have eaten al fresco.” Bill said.

“Al who?” Mom asked.

“Outside,” Bill answered.

“He’s outside?” she said, whipping her head around.

“Not ‘he,’ Mom,” I said.  “Al fresco means eating outdoors.”

“I don’t like eating outside.” Mom replied.

“Why not?”

“Because I never have.” she said.

“Well, why not try it?” he asked.

“I don’t know, but I don’t think I’d like it.”

“Why not,” Bill persisted.

“Because its outside!”
