I like Denny's. and IHOP. Waffle House? meh. Never Cracker Barrel. Oh... and the rest of the essay was terrific, but you already knew that. That old saying, "You can't go home again" has never rung true for me. You can go home again: Just don't forget your baseball cap.

My family has a joke: "No one GOES to Denny's, they just wind UP there." So I was lured in front the start. What a beautiful piece with so much profound internal dialogue & courageous insights. Kudos!

I looked sort of stupid, like everyone else, but just regular enough not to be noticed. HA!
