After the gig, we collected a small number of people to go out for fries and pie. Jon and I first met The Treasurer (loving nickname for a sectionmate) at a local restaurant and proceeded to sit down and order, not knowing how many would be joining us. We sat at a booth, with Jon and I sitting next to each other on one side, and The Treasurer sitting on the other side.
The waitress came over, took our orders, and then looked directly at Jon and asked "Will this be one check or two?"
...I have, apparently, been ruled out as a potential bill-payer by virtue of my gender and my seating location. I wonder if the waitress would have asked the same question if Jon and The Treasurer had been sitting on the same side.
Nevermind that the next time the waitress came by, Jon was making a completely facetious remark starting with "So I was at this strip club..."
Also, is that Mussorgsky I hear behind the cute kitten video?:
