During my lunch break today, between running errands, I stopped at a local Italian restaurant for a slice of pizza. Once I got in and ordered at the front, the place was packed with no empty tables in sight. I walked all the way to the back and there was a old man siting at a table with three empty chairs around him. I asked him if he was eating alone, which he proceeded to stumble over his words and finally saying that he was with someone....... uh huh., Ok fine, so I look around and low and behold in the corner, on the other side of the soda fountain machine, an empty chair and tiny table..... so I as I walked by behind him to sit down as he fidgeted like a nervous little puppy. I have a feeling he was scared of me. I wonder if we have become so anti social that we fear EVERYONE that we personally don't know. Some of the most interesting people that I have met in my life were complete strangers that I have shared a table with. I understand that some people prefer to eat alone, I get it... but his reaction and response wasn't like " I want to be alone", it was more like a nervous, scared, child. To me it felt like he thought I was going to commit some kind of crime against him. Anyway, his back was facing me as we both ate our food, and each went on our separate ways. On the flip side I did get some drawing time in so that was good.
I finally finished watching Harley and the Davidsons on Sunday, (I recorded the mini-series, it was really good!) and there was a small portion of the new show called Sacred Steel on the recording before it cut off. It looked interesting so I decided to search it on the Discovery Channels website, and they actually had the entire episode to watch online. Yay for me! It was their first episode and I am enamored with it. I am so glad I have a new show to watch!
