When the menus were presented, we ordered salads, sandwiches, and
soups, except for Jim who said, "Ice Cream, please. Two scoops,
I wasn't sure my ears heard right, and the others were aghast.
"Along with heated apple pie," Jim added, completely
We tried to act quite nonchalant, as if people did this all the

I couldn't take my eyes off Jim as his pie a-la-mode went down.
