See Food

Still waters run deep

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone say that I’d probably have enough for an all you can eat buffet at Pablo’s Seafood Diner.  What? You were expecting me to say millions? Have you seen the price list at Pablo’s?

Actually eating an unlimited buffet is an art by itself. 

Starting with clothing.  No not about fashion but just remember the clothes should be loose fitting and enable expansion. 

Pace yourself it’s not a sprint but a marathon.


Don’t forget the cash.  Pablo’s bouncers tend to dump non-paying clientele into the waterfront.

A very last minute entry from me for this week.  I am very 'pro-castination' ;-)  I just hope it's not a dud.

I'd love read what you think about this post...

    Millions are hard to understand. The price of a seafood bisque and a lobster thermidor is unattainable but imaginable

    1. Exactly Penny, sometimes simple needs are more satisfying. All that the narrator wants is enough for the buffet. Thanks for reading and commenting.
