In Training

In Katie Kitamura's The Longshot, Cal's deciding on his breakfast. Cal's a mixed-martial arts fighter, training to fight the biggest fight of his life. The waitress is rather keen on him.
"I'll have the breakfast platter." 
"One breakfast platter. You want your eggs scrambled, boiled or fried?" 
"You want bacon, ham or sausage links?" 
"You want beans, hash browns or breakfast potatoes?" 
"You want tortillas? Or you want toast, you want brown or white toast?" 
Cal hesitated. "Brown." 
She nodded as she wrote the order down. She smiled at Cal through her lipstick. 
"That was pretty good. I like a guy who knows what he wants."
