Sometimes the word ordinary can mean ‘special’. Example: He went out to lunch, I was his guest and yes, it was an ordinary day. His order, fish and chips please! He was seventy six and his eyes twinkled as he ordered his Castle and my glass of wine.
But there was no twinkle in his eyes when he saw his dinner. I ordered fish and chips! Ordinary fish and chips!
Yes Sir, this is fish and chips.
And what is that, he pointed at the salad on his plate.
That is garnish Sir.
Take it away, I didn’t order that!
We went to the same place for lunch often after Mommy died and they soon got to know my Dad. The head waitress made a point of serving us at The Golden Grill.
Ah! ordinary fish and chips and a cold Castle beer, she would say as she held his table napkin and smiled.
His eyes twinkled when his plate arrived, it was ordinary, but somehow so special!
