the waffle house

I was in Nashville, Tennessee last year. After the show I went to a Waffle House. I'm not proud of it, I was hungry. And I'm alone, I'm eating and I'm reading a book, right? Waitress walks over to me: " Hey, whatchoo readin' for?"

Isn't that the weirdest fucking question you've ever heard? Not what am I reading, but what am I reading *for*? Well, godammit, ya stumped me! Why do I read? Well... hmmm... I dunno... I guess I read for a lot of reasons, and the main one is so I don't end up being a fucking waffle waitress.
-Bill Hicks (December 16, 1961 – February 26, 1994), born William Melvin Hicks, Hicks was a controversial American stand-up comedian, satirist, and social critic.
We tried, but didn't make it to a Waffle house while in Tennessee for Bonnaroo. Ash (a native of Tennessee) assured us that it would be an unforgettable experience. And after reading this Bill Hicks quote, I'm thinking that she's right and that I won't be missing a thing if I never make it into one.

You don't even need to go to the South. We've got Waffle Houses right here in Phoenix. I know that really makes you want to come here.
