Moments from dinner tonight:
1. Man dining alone at a table, on cell phone: “Yeah, I’m at Bayside Betsy’s, and I have to be honest, I’m a little depressed…”
2. “Happy holiday!” (Said to me enthusiastically by a complete stranger waving cheerfully – practically flapping his arm – as he sat down at a table near me)
3. The stranger in #2 couldn’t find his reading glasses and couldn’t read the menu. The waiter brought a tall glass filled with several pairs of reading glasses.
4. At daughter’s request, mother takes cell phone picture of her husband and daughter. Father: “Again I’m going to be on Facebook?”
