We went out for dinner tonight due to the fires that seem to be blazing all over southern california. I know that seems a bit odd, but the smoke has been so thick we spent the day indoors and by the time dinner came around not only were we feeling couped up, but the smoke smell was in the house as well. Ahhh California in the fall.

Anyhoo, we ordered and I gave them my usual "no straw please" and what do you know, they brought me a straw. Such is life, sometimes it happens. I finished my lemonade and the waiter asked if I'd like another or just a water. I told him water would be fine thinking he'd fill my empty glass with a pitcher but a few seconds later, in came a new glass with, yes, you guessed it, another straw. Whaddya gonna do.
I decided I definitely wouldn't be asking for more to drink and finished dinner, excusing myself to use the bathroom as the kids finished their meals. And what was on the table when i came back? A brand new glass with, yes, you guessed it, a new straw.
Like the title says, sometimes you just can't win.
