This was just after Chris had enlisted in the Army and he had received one of his bonus checks. There was this really upscale steakhouse in Dallas called "Bob's Steak and Chop House" that we had wanted to eat at but never had the chance, being poor college students. Well now that Chris was "in the money" he decided he was going to treat us both to dinner there. So, we arrive well before the evening crowd. A lack of parking out front led us to just have the valet park it. We were splurging, might as well go all the way.
Dinner was great and by the time we left the place was packed. We were standing in this long line of people waiting for their cars. BMW's, porsche's, lexus, every top end luxury car you can think of was pulling up for our fellow guests. Then with a roar of a busted out muffler comes Chris's less than prime condition honda accord! I will never forget how red-faced we were, and the huge laugh we got as he goosed it out of there!
