The couple’s discussion was interrupted by the arrival of their server:
“Hi, my name’s April. I’ll be your server today. Can I get you guys anything to drink?”
“I’ll have an iced tea please,” the man said.
“Diet coke for me,” said the woman.
“Okay, and do you know what you want to eat or do you need a little more time?”
“I think we’re ready,” the man said, drawing out the last word as he looked across the table at the woman.
“Yes,” the woman said, answering his unspoken question, “we’ll start with the prosciutto sampler plate with breadsticks.”
