Wednesday is half priced nacho night.
Nachos have been half priced on Wednesday nights at Deer Park Tavern in Newark, as long as I can remember. It has certainly been a thing longer than the 24+ years than Monk and I have been together. Half Priced Nacho Night is one of our traditions. Oh, when we started going it was as part of a larger group of friends- usually after a ride. Over the years we've met friends and been happy to introduce them to half priced nachos. When Diane was out of work, it was a $5 meal that we could afford, enjoy and share. We look forward to it... We don't go every week, but often enough.

So Wednesday night, our young server came to our table and she explained the menu. She reviewed the specials and said, "tonight is half priced nacho night." I smiled at Diane and said, "did you hear that honey, it's half priced nacho night. What a surprise! That sounds very good, I think we are in!"
the young server looked at me like I was stranger than I actually am.
I explained, "we've been emailing each other all day about half priced nachos, it's been a tradition for us for at least 20 years or so."
The server looked totally disgusted.

It was a little awkward.
I asked her, "is it that strange that we would swap emails all day and get excited about nachos?" "Is there something about the nacho quality we should know about?"
the server smiled and said, "of course not, the nachos are great, but I can't believe you guys were emailing each other. Why wouldn't you just text? I mean, isn't texting better?
she continued, "so I'm guessing you're in for nachos any drinks?"
by the way, the nachos were great Wednesday night.
