I have been single for a few years now and I try not to let that hinder me from doing things I enjoy. One of the things I enjoy is dining out. I can’t eat alone without something to read so I bought Kindle and this is working out rather well. I read many blogs from my kindle at restaurants.
One thing I have noticed is I tend to be ignored a little. I’m quite certain if I was younger this wouldn’t happen as much. I remember being younger and I rarely had to ask for attention then. Of course I was more likely with someone when I was younger; a husband, a child, a parent, all of the above. I wasn’t as comfortable going out to eat alone when I was younger and it wasn’t in the budget.
While in Gettysburg I went out to eat on Sunday afternoon. I walked out of two restaurants after I was ignored. The third time was the charm and I dined at One Lincoln in the Gettysburg Hotel where I feasted on a delicious dish of crab macaroni and cheese enhanced with a chardonnay that was the perfect accompaniment.
Sometimes being ignored is like unanswered prayers.
