Conversations With Jake: Our Son is a "Playa"

For those of you who frequent Hooters, you may know that today is “Kid’s Day.” On “Kid’s Day,” (Thursdays) children get to eat for free. (I’ve got an archived post about this HERE.)

Anyway, I don’t know that we’ll be going to Hooters this evening, since I took some chicken out of the freezer to thaw in the fridge a couple of days ago, and I’m now forced to cook it tonight.

Last week, though, we did visit our neighborhood Hooters for Kid’s Day. And, as expected, Jake roamed the tables and booths, looking for his favorite server and hugging the other girls as we looked on in . . . pride? Embarrassment? I’m not sure what to call it yet.

As we went through the process of ordering drinks, then ordering food, then getting refills on drinks, then getting our food, etc., Jake made it a point to always ask our server for something–almost as if he were making an excuse for her to come over so he could talk to her. “Can I have some more milk?” or “Can I have some more ranch?,” he would ask, and then he would smile and roll his eyes and look away, as if pretending to be shy. What a playa!

And, if that wasn’t bad enough (or “good” enough, if you ask my husband), we learned it was all practice–he was getting the nerve up to ask one final question.

With puppy eyes blinking, rosy cheeks rose-ing, and after touching our servers beautifully curled brown hair, he asked:

“Will you come over to my house with me?”

She politely declined, of course.

  1. Awwww! How cute! He’s just a lovable kinda guy!

    I heard on the local radio station this morning that they are going to sent one of the DJ’s in to Hooter’s all dressed up in a Hooter’s outfit and serving customers. His tips will go to a local charity. They haven’t set a date yet but I’ll keep you posted :o)

  2. oh my, Jake is going to cause problems for fathers of daughters. My daughter’s (while she is currently only 3) potential dates will have a strict background check before I let her date anyone, when she is old enough 30 (just kidding).
