On a recent trip to the big city, he nearly exploded with excitement when he saw a Denny's sign sticking out like a sore thumb over the interstate overpass. "WE have a DENNY'S?" He asked as though this were on par with having Disney World around the corner. He was blown away. On another trip to the big city, Josh and I were discussing where to eat lunch and Mister chimed in that he would really, really love to go to Denny's and have some of their delicious bacon. We were really leaning toward finally trying the new Five Guys Burgers, but our son's excitement made us agree to his request.
We pulled into the parking lot and were nearly blinded by the shiny exterior of this diner. The place was hopping. We had a satisfying meal complete with mashed potato made from potato flakes and pancake bites made from Bisquick and, of course, bacon for Mister. Was it the best bacon he'd ever had? we asked him.
Maybe, he said. Maybe the second best.
But as he took another bite he said with a depth of emotion,"Thank you for bringing me here!"
And that made it all worth it.
And here's part two of the Bacon Makes It Better series, just in case you loved it too.
