I would like you all to know that as of last night, I am a proud member of....The Olive Garden.
Yes, you read that right.
Last night we went out to get some dinner (baby wanted pasta) and The Olive Garden was the place of choice. Dave took the kids and I walked up to the hostess and told her party of four, and she said "Great, please sign in here with your name and card number"
"I'm sorry, my what?"
"Your membership card number."
"My membership to The Olive Garden?"
"I wasn't aware that you could be a member of The Olive Garden."
"We are a private club."
"The Olive Garden is a private club."
The hostess was getting impatient at this point.
"Yes, since we serve alcohol in a dry county, we are required to have a members. If could please just sign in here, here is your membership card. It will be five minutes."
And then it hit me: We are SO not in Texas anymore.
