For parents who have tried a restaurant with their kids

The reason old couples sit in restaurants and don't say a word? Tony Woodlief says it's because of decades of cacophony from their children:
It's because they are all talked out. Just watch them. They don't even speak to the waitress; they just point to what they want on the menu. I imagine once the last boy is out of the house we may go for a good solid year without saying a word. And it will be blissful. Then we'll spend the rest of our days wondering why they don't come visit more often.

But that's okay, because we'll visit them. Mostly because we love them. But also to watch them eat with their own children. Heh heh heh.

Read the whole thing. It's good for a laugh.
