Yes, we really are that dumb

I had the chance to go out to dinner with my dear friend Melissa last night. We are both pretty smart, if I do say so myself. We did well in high school, have college degrees, and between the two of us, parent five children. Nevertheless, this is how our dinner outing went:

1. Park at Carraba's and learn that there is a 1.5 hr wait for a table.

2. Walk next door to Smoky Bones and put our names on the list since the wait there is only 45 min.

3. Decide to use some of those 45 minutes walking next door to Olive Garden to see what their wait is.

4. Discover that Buffalo Wild Wings is between Smoky Bones and Olive Garden, but bypass it and walk to Olive Garden. The wait there is 1.5 hrs.

5. Since we've gone so far anyway, we decide to walk next door to Chili's and check out that wait. Thirty minutes. Score! Put our names on the list.

6. Realize that the Smoky Bones pager, which is beeping because we've gone too far, is not going to stop beeping.

7. Decide since we have 30 minutes to kill, we may as well return the pager to Smoky Bones.

8. Walk back to Smoky Bones with pager.

9. Walk back to Chili's to eat dinner.

10. While waiting for our table, realize that if we had a LICK of sense between the two of us, we'd have gotten the car while we were down there.

Yes, this is a true story of two idiots and their parking lot ambulations.
