potato peel society

We had our book club at a Southern style cafe. Which was chosen because they served pie. I had some sopapilla cheesecake, sounds bizarre, thus my appeal to it (cinnamon cheesecake delight). I ordered breaded and deep fried okra (which was actually quite good). I also got some mac and cheese (which wasn't). I took one bite of the processed mac & cheese and said no thank you I'll pass (gag me). I thought it was going to be Southern style casserole baked with REAL cheese (um nope). My girl ordered a sandwich and onion rings and the reason why I took a photo is when they delivered it they dropped an onion ring. So they had one specially made and delivered on a small plate. I thought it was funny. I remember for a Summer, I was a server (worst job ever, just call me slave). I spilled a glass of ice water on a lady while trying to carry or remove it from tray (classy eh?). Her guy felt sorry for me, and later palmed me extra $ that wasn't on table for tip. I felt horrible about the whole thing. Suckiness indeed! What I like about book club is hearing other people's thoughts or ideas on reading subject matter. It reminds me of what I liked when I attended college, 100 yrs. ago. Here's my favorite quote from the book ..."It is so small a thing to have enjoyed the sun, to have lived in the spring, to have loved, to have thought, to have done, to have advanced true friends? It isn't."...
I recognized my full maiden name listed in book except book character was a guy so his named ended in y when mine ends in i.
