Maura Harp

Maura: You know, I’m sure by the end of this episode, I’m gonna be really hungry.
Harp: I’m sure as well.
Maura: Even though I just ate dinner, but I’ll be hungry again.
Harp: That’s what happens when we talk about food.
Maura: That’s it. So, let’s get started with the restaurant experience.
Harp: All right. Well, I guess it starts when you walk in and you’re waiting to be seated.
Maura: Right. Now sometimes when you walk in, it’s not even clear if you should wait to be seated or you should seat yourself. Sometimes there’s a sign that says “Wait to be seated” or “Seat yourself,” but sometimes you’re kind of standing there and you’re not sure what to do.
