(This is a letter to my former roommate, Katie Cutler, who is currently serving a mission in South Korea. She used to do this tradition with us every finals week, so I decided to write her a letter about it, and then post it on here.)
Dear Sister Cutler,
Forgive me for being an awful friend. I will try harder to write you more. How’s the mission going? I miss you, but I bet you’re having a grand time.
Well, it’s good ole’ finals week here in Provo. I’m surviving. I only have one more test to take, and then I’ll be free . . . for five more days until Spring Term starts. I’m actually pretty excited for the few days that I have off, and my classes in the Spring shouldn’t be too hard. How’s the weather in Korea? Is it sunny?
Anyway, we decided to carry on the tradition and go to Sizzler’s during finals week to get the 99-cent unlimited dessert bar. What a steal of a deal . . . apparently they realized that, though. Or maybe it was just the fiasco that we created last time. :)
Anyway, Stacy, Catie, and I went to Sizzler’s (and we were going to meet Keisha there), and we were waiting in line. Then a man came up to us and said, “What would you like?” We told him the unlimited dessert bar for 99 cents, and he said, “No you can’t do that. You have to buy a meal to do that.” And then I said, “Who do you think you are? I’ve been coming here every finals week for 2 years, and you’ve never had a problem with it before, bud. I want my unlimited brownies, so make it happen.”
I wish I had said that, but that’s not really how it went down. I just stared at him and mumbled something like “no way” and then awkwardly tried to get out of the way so the next person could order, but he kept on pressuring us to make a decision. Apparently he could not see that our dreams had just been smashed and it was hard to choose. How inconside’ate, right? We finally decided to “take our business elsewhere”, so we went to Applebees instead.
This is us waiting to get a booth. Keisha was working, so she came a bit late, but she made it. Do not fret! (Kennedy and Rachael couldn’t make it down.)
Before the above picture was taken, Stacy was awkwardly standing far away from us and said something like “what? where should I stand.” I told her to go stand by the door until the picture was taken, and the guy who was taking it for us said, “Wha? They be showin’ you no love? Oh no, you get yourself over there and get in the pic.” Haha seriously the way he said it was so funny. I wish I could’ve recorded it for you.
After Applebees we were still not satisfied (since we were so used to stuffing our faces with unlimited desserts . . . and those free rolls that one time. man, those were good! way better than the time we got the free toast.), so we went to Macey’s and got the 50 cent ice cream cones! Best deal ever! I got swirl because that’s definitely the best.
Anyway, I miss you!!! I wish I could hear this again-
*Katie bumps into Me
Katie: “Oops. Sorry.”
Me: “Oh, you’re fine.”
Katie: “Oh! Thanks!!!”
If I only had a dime for every time that I heard that Sophomore year. I miss it, though.
