I called my daughter today. Her birthday is the 21st. She loves pineapple anything. So I asked her if she would like a pineapple upsidedown cake for her birthday. She told me she would rather have it for Easter. Okay. Then I got to thinking. I looked at the calendar to see when Easter was and saw that it would be during her week of chemo. Hmmm. This idea of mine is slowly dying. So I call her back and we discuss it further. We finally left it that after she is done with her chemo, sometime in April she will call me and let me know she is ready for her pineapple upsidedown cake.
I then asked her how my granddaughter is doing in nursing school. She has finals coming up and has to take time off from her job at Hooters. (I hate to even put that name to paper.) She has to study. Then her next semester her clinicals begin. Even her mother agrees with me. This profession just doesn't seem like her. Little Miss Prissy cleaning someone's dirty backside, having a patient vomit right there in front of her? Drawing blood, and all the other nasty stuff that as a student she will be required to do? When it comes to book learning she has always gotten straight A's. Now she has to put it all into practice. Please dear Lord, protect those unsuspecting patients.
And then there is her job at Hooters. She makes great money. She should. She has the body and experience of being a darn good waitress. And she can put anyone in their place when there is a need. But come Monday, ALL employees have been told that the district manager will be in and wants the whole staff there dressed in proper business attire. Uh oh. I told my daughter that I just read today that Hooters has gone from a $1B business down to $8M is just two years. So they are going to be trying to lure women in. They will be changing the decor, and making the place less of a man cave. There will probably be a change in the girls uniforms. Less sexy. (Sorry boys) This will be interesting.
So ladies, knowing that Hooters wants you to go there with your husband, would you? And for you men, do you like the idea of the change? Do you want to bring your wife or SO there? Are you willing to give up your man cave without a fuss? Will you still go there?
