I know just about everybody who works there and the owner. I enjoy talking to the people when they’re not too busy but today, some body came in that I think reminded me of my awkward days years ago. He was past his mid forties and was hitting on my waitress (20 years old) in a way that was embarrassing because of his awkwardness. He held on to his menu for five of her returns to take his order and tried to be s-wave and de-boner and get her to talk to him. She did talk to him some and it made me think that she must be totally aware of awkward men… pitiful… I thought I’d tell you guys just in case any of us think we’re s-wave and de-boner ourselves.

My favorite restaurant is neither a diner nor a chain and rarely has clientele who are either s-wave or de-boner.

YMMV.

My favorite restaurant suffered one too many floods and closed up permanently.

s-wave and d-boner?

Are these supposed to be cute? or funny? or clever? or does Phillip not know how to pronounce and spell the words, maybe?

one of my favorite people used to say that for years and years... she may be dead and gone by now and I say it in remembrance of her

(and she certainly knew the difference)

It's a man thing: If your s-wave is rejected by a waitress you get a ... oh never mind

Sounds like a fun day.

We just had a thread on punctuation, and it mentioned how Shakespeare made up words if needed. It was a bit of a celebration of creativity and imagination when it comes to writing.

Of course there is another side to this situation not mentioned in the OP or since.
How about the good looking debonair gentleman, such as myself, who goes into a restaurant and all the women in the place start whispering and staring and pointing rudely, not to mention drooling, sweating and damn near fainting?
Then when they get their nerve up, they send one of their number over with a menu and ask, "Are you really Alan Jackson"? That really gets tiring!:)

Nah, if you have to supply definitions, it wasn't done right.

I think everyone understood the two words Phillip used in the original post.

The guy probably just got his new toopay which made him feel especially swave and deboner, so he thought he'd try out a few new lines he'd been practicing on the lucky lady in the diner.

Young women who deal off the arm in diners are usually pretty good at looking out for their interests. But it's hard work, and doesn't pay very well. Tip generously--you can afford it.

Our youngest daughter comes up with some good words.

One day when we asked why she wasn't listening to us, she said... "I misunderheard you."
