Have you ever been in a group situation where they throw out ‘ice breaker’ questions to get people talking? My favorite question is this one..
If you could do anything in the world and knew that you would DEFINITELY succeed at it, what would you do?
My answer is always, Open My Own Family Restaurant! I already have the name too. The Mechanic’s Grill. I can also see the whole layout and design of it too in my mind. It would look like an old 50’s style Diner/Mechanic’s Garage. It would have BIG garage doors that slid up and out of the way for when it was nice outside and you want to have the breeze flowing through. The wait staff would all wear shirts like mechanic’s like their names on them and the menu would all be home style food.
The catch phrase would be – ” the only thing missing in this garage is the GREASE “. LOL.
Can’t you just picture it. There would be commercial bar stools with BRIGHT teal seat cushions – a flash back to the 50’s. You could swing up to the counter, sit on a bar stool and eat your meal as you watch the ‘mechanics’ work over your food.
You could sit with your friends around the tire based tables on cool aluminum chairs, enjoying great dishes like cheeseburgers, fried chicken, meatloaf, hot fudge sundaes, and tons more.
The look, the atmosphere and the great cooking would bring you back every time. Of course, I would greet you at the door with smile and maybe even a hug.
Ah. To dream. If only. Maybe someday.
