“….And then there was the time a waitress mistook me for the child actor who played Bud, the redheaded, freckle-faced friend of Flipper. Flipper was a dolphin, the star of the sixties TV show of the same name.
What do you think? See any resemblance?
I was only about nine, so I didn’t catch on right away to what was taking place, but our table did seem to get a lot of attention from the restaurant staff as well as the diners around us. I knew something was up when the waitress put a slice of chocolate cake before me
(In my middle class family we seldom ate out, and we never ordered desert).
Now this brings up the question, why didn’t the adults at the table correct the waitress?
Let’s see. Service versus Great service. And cake.
It probably helped add to the illusion, alright the fraud, that my older brother sitting next to me was blond, which in the show, Bud’s
older brother Sandy was also blond, and about the same age.
