Saturday night, Andy and I used some Outback gift certificates that our generous friends gave us for Christmas. Before we left the house, Jo-Man, who was doing Army Guard for the weekend, called to ask what we were having for dinner. He had been given some time to leave Camp Williams to have dinner. We invited him to join us at Outback.
When Andy and I arrived, Jo was standing outside the restaurant in his uniform and had already gone in and put his name down and was told that it would be an hour wait. He told us that he wouldn't be able to wait that long and handed me the pager. At that moment the pager vibrated and the lights came on. We walked in to the very crowded restaurant. We were seated at a table after only an 8 minute wait. We joked that it was Jordan's army uniform that got us in so quickly. The waitress then brought out 2 loaves of bread instead of one and we were given a full rack of ribs and the waitress made sure we knew that we would only be chargedfor a half order. We decided that we'll take Jordan with us to dinner on his army weekend from now on if that uniform really DOES work magic! I hope that if he's deployed it will still work magic and keep him safe!
