Embarrassing Order

Today at lunch I was sitting at Barry's Drive Inn in Spanish Fork eating my mozzarella sticks when suddenly three old guys walked in. One of them said, "I'll take the usual." Then the other said, "Make that two." Then the third, "Make that three."

For some reason I can't bring myself to order the same thing as someone else. It feels very strange. It's almost embarrassing to me. But these three men were so casual about their duplicated order that it made me feel comfortable. These men have inspired me. From now on I'm going to order what I want - even if someone else already ordered it. It may take a while to get used to, but I know it's the right thing to do.
