Mama Said: At Chick and Ruth's

This one I just remembered. How could I have forgotten?

We’re were at Chick and Ruth’s, a diner in Annapolis known for being the gathering spot for all the state legislators, the movers and shakers in Maryland government. I love Chick and Ruth’s—where else can you find a restaurant where everyone rises out of their chairs every day at a designated time, and they all recite together the pledge of allegiance? So we’re there for breakfast. Our waitress is wearing a very obvious patch on her eye. My mother can’t decide what to order, then she looks at the waitress and says, “I’ll have one egg. Over easy. And I’m not saying that just because of your eye.”
