Ancient History

Follow Me?



Aidan wanted to go to Old Chicago for her birthday dinner.

We were seated with our standard six kids’ menus and two regular menus. Aidan opened hers and gasped, “I am too old for the kids’ menu!”

I looked. It was for kids ages ten and under. She is a very new eleven.

She told the waiter with a proud grin. He brought an adult menu for her to peruse. I watched her as she sighed and turned the pages.

“I don’t know what to get!” she complained. “There are too many choices!”

I told her which entrees I liked, which made her even more frustrated. Who wants to order Mom Food?

Finally, she snapped the menu shut with authority.

“I’m getting the steak!”

Eleven is expensive.
