Say What?

After dinner we ordered coffee (for me) and tea (for Mom). The waiter, probably a college student, placed a saucer in front of Mom then laid a paper lace doily on top of it. In a somewhat joking, somewhat flirting manner Mom said, “You must have known I was going to spill my tea and are already preparing for it.”

His reply, “Oh, no, ma’am. I just wanted to make it purty for you.”

I blinked a couple of times and let it set in. I just heard a grown man use the word “purty.”
