When meeting with friends for good times and over dinner, it is essential you request a fun waiter. Lucky for us (or was that lucky for him) we were appointed this guy at the local IHOP in The Colony, Texas.
Mmmm, the tilapia was seasoned to perfection along with its nest of sliced red potatoes.

Usually when I go to IHOP, I order a Rooty Tooty Fresh 'N Fruity. Actually, I don't remember the last time I did not order the Rooty Tooty Fresh 'N Fruity as it is almost a tradition for me when I visit this particular restaurant.

You want to know the real reason I ordered a Rooty Tooty Fresh 'N Fruity for the first time way back when? I ordered it because Tootie off of The Facts of Life was my icon and a version of her name was in the title of the meal. There. I said it. Please don't judge me.
