# My wife and I went to dinner with a couple of friends on Saturday evening, nothing fancy as it was more for the company than the food.

The restaurant was busy and noisy making it difficult to sometimes hear just across the table. After a while, one group left and I remarked that the "noisy table" had gone and we could hear ourselves think.

As the evening progressed things got a little more raucous until one of our friends was forced to exclaim "I think we've become the noisy table!"
