Jon Crispin's Notebook

Waffle House (again)

When Cris and I drove to South Carolina this year we left home late in the day and drove through the night as we usually do.  We always joke about the IHOP-Waffle House line and how it mostly mirrors the Mason-Dixon line.  The Waffle House breakfasts can be a bit on the greasy side, but there isn’t much choice on I-95.  We were amazed to find an IHOP near Florence, SC so we stopped and ate at around 6.oo am.  We got back on the road and a bit later we stopped for gas.  We laughed because it was the same exit where we ate at a Waffle House last year.  The sun had just broken through the clouds and the building looked great in the morning light.

mmm good


Cris, the Pearl and I left Pelham yesterday at about 4 pm and arrived at Kiawah at about 9 this morning.  Driving through the night on I-95 is really the way to go.  Very little traffic and it is really nice to be in the car at night with Cris.  She slept on and off, Pearl was really chilled and I was jacked up with a combination of milky tea, Starbucks Frappucinos, and Sudafed.  I have had this flu since the week before Christmas and am really tired of it.  Just before 6 we stopped for gas and needed some breakfast.  Waffle House can be a sketchy experience, but this one was decent.  Lots of grease for the potatoes and eggs, and they must have thought we came from another planet, but all in all, fast and filling.
