Old Timer

We ate at a new restaurant in Wahiawa this week.  Once you place your order the servers hand you a square box that lights up when your order is ready so you know to head back up to the counter and get your food.

As we sat at the table, Katie placed the indicator on the table and stared at it as though mentally willing it to light up.

"That won't help," I told her.  "Don't you know a watched pot never boils?"

"No, Mama.  It's 'a watched page never loads'," Emily informed me.

Ben chimed in, "And who would want to boil something in a pot when you've got a microwave??"
