In praise of Denny's

Snackish | Sep 16, 2005 08:16 PM

Denny's - one of the least houndish places on earth. A chain coffee shop with pictures on the menus and specialties that all seem to come with 2 slices of bacon, 2 sausages and 2 pancakes.

But sometimes when you are beat, just beat after finding out horrible news like your dad has had a heart attack and you have to throw some clothes in a bag and go comfort your mom who is staying in a hotel because the house is being tented for termites and you leave without eating dinner and after not having had lunch and then you have to have a long long talk with mom before she is calm enough to sleep and it is late at night and you are starving and you go into Denny's and there is a waitress who calls you "sweetie" and looks at you like she knows something is wrong because she has had her share of tears in her life, and then 10 minutes later puts a perfect fluffy omelette in front of you, well, that is some damn good life-affirming chow.
