Today, Flat Stanley enjoyed some time with Papa!
Flat Stanley and Papa just cruised in the car for much of the day. Papa likes to turn up the music and they were singing the blues together. Papa had to put his dark sunglasses on for the “coolness” factor.
“Dark glasses are a must when cruising in the car singing the Blues,” Papa told him.
We were jammin’ to Ray Charles as we cruised down the boulevard. “Georgia, ooohhh Georgia, Georgia’s on my mind…”
Papa took Flat Stanley out for a nice lunch at Chili’s. As we all know, Papa likes the spice! But this time he kept in line with the southern blues line of food and went for the ribs! Flat Stanley enjoyed an enormous plate of chicken fajitas. They came out on a sizzling hot plate that was kind of scary, but Flat Stanley was very careful not to burn himself.
He liked the green guacamole and sour cream rolled up with chicken in the wraps they give you.
Flat Stanley started rappin’ to the beat. The music in Chili’s is pretty loud and they were playing some upbeat music that had Flat Stanley a hoppin’ in his seat!
There was a really cool gaming system on the table and Flat Stanley wanted to play! Papa found a video game that asks questions and he had to choose between four answers. They call it “trivia,” and I’d agree…it was trivial! But Papa has a lot of little weird information stored up in that brain of his, just like Nana.
“So, that’s why you like that Millionaire game so much,” Flat Stanley said after he did the millionaire tune while Papa tried to figure out the answers .. “do do do do, do do do.. bum bumm bumm bum bump bump BUMP!”
Flat Stanley chose the Creepy Spiders game! It was fun. While he was playing, the waitress came over and asked if they wanted dessert. Papa has been so good at being careful with his diet, but Flat Stanley wanted that lava cake soo so badly!
Papa smiled at the waitress and Flat Stanley, who were both waiting for his response.
“Yes, Flat Stanley can have his cake, and I’ll steal just ONE bite.”
Papa caved. It’s hard not to give in to Flat Stanley’s cute, pleading eyes.
Flat Stanley was wiping his chocolate covered face with the back of his sleeve, as they left the restaurant.
It was a fun day with Papa! Flat Stanley was smiling his big beautiful smile! I hope this finds you smiling too! If so, please subscribe, so that Nana can send you an email when a new Flat Stanley Adventure is posted.
