Tom's Order

by CrystieCookie999

Tom Burnside was tired of herding cattle all day. His shoulders and back ached. Even his toes were sore. At sundown, he took a bath, dressed, and ambled slowly down the dusty main street, seeking the perfect watering hole. He stopped at Mike's Bar and Grill, easing gingerly into a booth.
"What can I get for you, handsome?" asked the perky, blonde waitress, in a pink top.
"Tuna fish sandwich with fries," Tom replied.
"Tuna fish sandwich? But our hamburgers are famous!"
"No beef with that, but I don't wanna see any cow or bull tonight, even a famous one."
