A serious man


I was dining at a restaurant recently, with family -- a micro-step above casual food -- and had a fine meal of chicken with pasta in an asiago cheese sauce. After dinner came the dessert menus, and everyone got dessert except me.

The waitress asked, "Did nothing catch your eye?"

I said, "Well, I was tempted by the Decadent Chocolate Cake, but I think I'll pass."

The waitress, displaying wonderful tact, replied, "It is a serious dessert, but you look like a serious man."
