I was at a seminar in Portland this past weekend and ate lunch both days in the hotel restaurant. I sometimes feel a bit weird eating alone but there were many other solitary diners there so it wasn't too bad. The best part of eating out alone? I got the bread basket all to myself. Yum, yum, yummy carbs.
So the second day I was sitting there eating a delicious turkey burger when a very cute old man sat down by me. The chef and the servers all knew him so I guess he was a regular. He flirted in a cute old man way with the server and gushed over the desert. A couple of times he turned and included me in the conversation and i couldn't help but just smile so big.
(and yes, i totally took this pic with my phone in total stalker mode)
I don't know why but he just made me happy. He just seemed like a very content, happy person. I hope that I am like that when I'm old...or now for that matter.
