Dinner With The Girls




They were only 15 by the end of the summer. Girlfriends. Meeting for dinner at the Diary Queen next to the Ocean View Restuaruant because after they pooled their money, they only had six dollars. Besides, Jimmy Johnson, the cute boy in Social Stuies, lived on the same street.

Ten years later, the group of 25-year-old girlfriends agreed to meet at the Ocean View Restaurant because the beer was cheap, the band was good, and there was no cover. And lots of cute guys.

Ten years later, the 35-year-old friends shared the cost of a babysitter and met at the Ocean View Restaurant because the cosmos were good, it was close to the gym, and if they went late enough there wouldn't be too many whiny babies.

Ten years later, the 45-year-old girlfriends met at the Ocean View Restaurant because the martinis were big and the waiters were college boys with nice bums.

Ten years later, the 55-year-old girlfriends met, once again, at the Ocean View Restaurant because the prices were reasonable, the wine list was good, it had windows that opened (in case of a hot flash) and the fish was good for their cholesterol.

Ten years later, the 65-year-old ladies argued that the Ocean View Restaurant wasn't what it used to be, but the lighting was good and someone had a coupon for the early bird special.

Ten years later, the 75-year-old friends found their way back to the Ocean View Restaurant because the food wasn't too spicy and the place was handicapped-accessible. And it had an elevator.

Ten years later, the 85-year-old girlfriends discussed where to meet for dinner. Finally, they agreed to meet at the Ocean View Restaurant because it sounded nice and they had never been there before.
