I enjoy eating alone occasionally. I know many folks feel very uncomfortable dining alone but I find a certain freshness about it. It makes me focus more on my food. I typically look for a table where I can sit with my back against the wall which gives me a good angle to be able to see and watch everyone in the room.
It’s interesting to watch what people do when they dine. Those with company would obviously be chatting and laughing away. But those who dine alone typically have their noses buried in their pervasive devices or the odd commercial property insurance quote.
I’m not BFFs with my iPhone so you won’t find me checking it every other second. Hey, there’s so much to see out there it’d be a waste to have my eyes glued to a boring old screen.
