What a common beckoning phrase we find at diners we frequent.
I love it, don’t you?
You don’t have to wait and let someone else choose your table or booth, you pick it yourself.

Sometimes my husband gets on my case a little bit,
because I’ll pick a table that still must be cleared from the last customer’s meal.
Why is it that the best table is still dirty?
Okay, well, it’s the table I want,
it’s by the window,
so I can watch what’s going on outside and watch what’s going on inside.
: : :
What about you?
Do you want that table?
You know the one by the window with dishes to be cleared yet.
