Memories of Mom Monday – Eggs & coffee

We took many trips by car together as a family. Before motels began offering “free” breakfast included with the price of the room, we usually started the day at a place like Denny’s, Sambo’s or Bob’s Big Boy. Most of the time, we would each order a plate consisting of a choice of some combination of eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, pancakes, hash browns, toast.

Ordering became rather routine. The waitress would go around the table as we stated what we wanted in turn. One time, Mom either really needed her morning cup of joe or was somehow distracted. When her turn came, the exchange went something like this:

Waitress: “And what would you like, ma’am?”

Mom: “A number two.”

Waitress: “How would you like your eggs?”

Mom: “Coffee.”

We all immediately caught the error and started to laugh. Replying “coffee” when asked how the eggs were to be prepared became a long-running joke inside the family.
