Ok so I went to diner with Clem not long ago.
He likes steak, so I told him to meet me for lunch at one of those local steak houses.

When I got there, Clem had not yet arrived. So I found a good table by the window, ordered a coffee and waited. About ten minutes later he showed up.

He was full of news about what was going on in the neighborhood, he always has the best gossip, funny how them mailmen never miss nothin.
I realized as we were talkin that I hadn't pulled a prank on Clem for a long time, now would be as good a time as any.
We usually pay for our own lunch, so I needed an idea on how to get Clem to pick up the tab, with out just asking. My prank mode is kickin in.

I noticed that Clem knew a ton of people, as they would all stop by the table and say hi, my idea is born.
We order our food, and I order much more than usual, Clem, noticed, as he remarked, man you must really be hungry today Mr.Bob.
Yep, worked real hard today on that back yard, moved some dirt, and burned some brush, I must have really built up an appetite.

We finished our meal and Clem ordered another coffee, I told him that I really need to get back to that yard and make sure that the fire completely burned out.
Clem, always waves at anyone that waves at him.

So when I get to the cashier, I tell her that today is my birthday, and that fellow over at that table over ther is paying for my lunch.
She asks me which one, I smile at Clem, wave real big, yeah thats him, the guy thats wavin.
Thanks Clem I really enjoyed lunch, I chuckle on my way out.
