My Seeester needed moral support today during a neurological/ophthalmology appointment and I volunteered. (Jeez. I had no idea ophthalmology had all those extra letters in it! Totally misspelled that the first time. Wow.)
After the appointment we decided lunch was in order and had two great things going for us:
1. We were already on the Plaza
2. We were smack dab in the middle of Kansas City Restaurant Week
It didn’t take much to convince her to head straight to Gram & Dun. Delicious food and a Smoking Dun (their signature cocktail) proved to be the perfect way to wrap up an in-depth eye appointment. Especially because her eyes were dilated larger than a mo’ fo’ and everything up close was very blurry. Her filmy sunglasses were beyond stylish and guiding her through the entrance made me feel like Lionel Richie’s bodyguard. Not only did I get to read the menu to her, but I ordered for her as well. “The lady will have the G&D salad to start and the Burnt Ends Mac & Cheese for her entrée. And the other lady (pointing to myself) would like the Jackson Salad followed by the Shrimp & Grits. Please.”
I was quite pleased with myself. And we shared a number of giggles the whole time.
Lunch was delicious.
The cocktail(s) didn’t hurt either. I’m using a parenthetical plural version of cocktail because we may or may not have had more than one. Only three people know the truth: Me. My Seeester. Our server. And no one is talking. And it doesn’t matter. Because dilated or not, “eye” most definitely spied the best, delicious and most fun lunch ever.
