Overheard at Table 3: Happy Family

Guy:  I'm a good dad.  I teach my kids how to sing songs.

Buddy: You taught them how to sing "Happy Family"

Guy:  Yeah.  See?  Wholesome.

Buddy:  "Happy Family."  By the Ramones.

Guy: Yeah.  It's cultural.

Buddy:  Sittin here in Queens/Eatin refried beans/We're in all the magazines/gulpin' down thorazines.

Guy: The harmonies that my little preschoolers hit - it's almost magical!!

Overheard at Table 2: MBA

Man: Dude, I'm on this MBA track and my wife is always on my case about not spending time with her and the kids and this thing takes up most all my Saturdays and half my Sundays and runs into the evening as well and I'm just all the time thinking 'what good is getting an MBA if I won't have a wife and family to show it to when I graduate?'

Dude:  Well, as your best friend I think you need to try to carve out some time for your wife.   Now, speaking as your wife, I wanna say we'll be there for you when you graduate with your MBA, but you also need to carve out some more time for me and the kids!

Overheard at Table 1: Write Hard

Writer:  I write hard, I write fast, I write good, and I knock stuff out, so I've got no idea why nothing's taking.

Reader: Because you don't write STORY, you only write WORDS.
