Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

Last Friday night John, John's Daddy and I went out to one of our favorite restaurants for a delicious dinner. There was a three year old in the booth next to us who became our new best friend. (Ok, I didn't want this to be a long winded, when-is-the-train-coming-into-the-station post, but oh well. My father in law is the sweetest man ever. He is really could be one of Santa's elves. As we were waiting for dinner he told us that he was the Pied Piper and that when he had our dog, my sister in law's dog and his dog at his house, he relished that they followed him around because he always had treats. He told us that dogs and kids always love him because he has treats all the time. At dinner, our booth neighbors were two adults and a small girl who was eating a piece of pizza and standing up in the booth and staring at everyone. She looked at my father in law and he smiled and waved at her. About 4 minutes later the little girl and her mom came over and the mom said, "She has been talking about you nonstop. She wanted to come over and meet you because when she was looking at people, you were the only one who smiled back." Yeah, a random kid sought out my father in law because he is so sweet and wonderful.) Here are some choice exchanges from our conversation.

AGirlNamedStewart: "When is your birthday?"
3 Year Old: "That's the day I was born."

AGNS: "Do you have any pets?"
3YO: "Two. One is a dog and her name is Lilly and she is a black dog. She lives at our house. One is a cat named Bean and she lives in cat heaven."

The little girl also had an invisible friend named Sauncy who was very, very bad and does bad things all the time.

It goes without saying that Friday's dinner was one of the best meals I've had in a long time.
