Where’s The Beef?

Everytime a resident celebrates a birthday at my mom’s nursing home, they get to choose a special Birthday lunch.  Anything their heart desires–within limits both financially and denture-wise.
Yesterday it was Helen’s birthday.  Now Helen is a very big woman.  There’s much of Helen to love and she LOVES to eat!   The activity lady asks Helen in front of all the gathered residents waiting for their lunch, “What do you want to eat for your Birthday?”  Helen thinks for a moment and starts to recite her wishlist: mashed potatoes, lobster, french fries and an eclair for desert.  At which point my mom delightfully shouts out, “Hey Helen, why don’t you get a side of Beef?”
