Diet Water

So, you know that feeling you get when you're told halfway through the day that you've got something going on in the evening, and you're surprised and a little disappointed because you had plans?
Yeah.  Yesterday I unexpectedly participated in an elementary school carnival for my fencing group.  They had requested we come because their theme was the Olympics.  I wasn't all that disappointed, actually, because I had just been planning on doing homework later that night, and it was fun.... ish.
In any case, afterward Mom, Mia, and I, decided we wanted to go out to eat at Mimi's Cafe (all the boys were gone).  If you've never been, I highly suggest it.  Not only is the atmosphere relaxing and calming, but the food is to die for!
It's our favorite place to eat, so we go there a lot.  Consequently, we recognize some of the waiters.  However, I didn't think any of the waiters would recognize us.
Until last night.
See, a little while ago, there was a forward Mia got that was absolutely hilarious.  It was a list of ways to "maintain a healthy level of insanity."  My personal favorite was to run out of a zoo screaming at the top of your lungs, "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!! THEY'RE LOOSE!!"  Sadly, I've never been able to try it, since I'm pretty sure it's illegal.
However, there was one item on the list we try on a regular basis.  It instructs to you request, with a completely straight face, that the waiter bring you diet water.  If you've got the right kind of waiter, it's hilarious! 
Well, at Mimi's last night, we ended up having one of the waiters I recognized.  He looked at us and said, "You look familiar."
Says Mom, "We're the ones that asked for diet water."
"Oh!  Now I remember!"
Kinda pathetic, right?
It gets better.
A few minutes later, one of his fellow waiters, I guess he was helping him out, came and brought our appetizer.  He looked at us and asked, "I think I've seen you ladies before... you're the ones that ordered the diet water!"
We have a reputation!
I'm not sure whether or not this is a good thing.

Fare thee well, friend!
