Because I hate you #4

Frank went to Denny’s one night, and found that they’d changed the menu for April Fool’s Day.

 The waitress, an obvious transplant from the deep south, brought Frank his menu and some coffee.  The menu only had five items on it:  “cheap, good, better, better-and-better, and great.”

 “Great” featured a lot of tomatoes on it, and Frank hates tomatoes, but the others weren’t described in any detail.  So sensing an adventure, Frank ordered the “better and better.”

 It came out as this sort of oatmeal-colored hash.  At first it wasn’t all that great, but true to the description, the third or fourth bite was pretty good, and as the subtle flavoring built up, it really did get better and better!

 Frank stopped the waitress on her way through with the coffee, and said, “what IS this ‘better and better?’ “

The waitress responded, pouring coffee and chuckling in her drawl, “well, hon, whuts’ the better and better?  That’s a meal yore eatin’. “

  1. I like this little fable, not sure why. That’s not a criticism of it at all- you write very well. I just can’t put my finger on why I like this. Is it part of a series?
