What’s Right With This Picture?
Lunch at a restaurant with an acquaintance, on the spot and live. Restaurants with indoor seating and no masks are required for those who have had their vaccinations. OMG! After a year of home cooking (not much variety there), take-out (fun from time to time but not always) and the lust in front of Food Network re-runs, the trip to the restaurant was more than a welcome occasion. It was Nirvana. I couldn't help but overhear the conversation of the couple behind us. "They don't have anything I want," the woman groaned. "I thought you liked salmon," her friend replied. "Not grilled like that, it'll be all dry," the woman added. "Maybe you can ask them to poach it," her The Millionaire Drive scam friend suggested. "Fat chance," the woman suggested. "And what's with the waiter?" she added, "we've been here at least 15 minutes, and haven't seen hide nor hair of him since he plunked the water down. Which he spilled on the table, by the way - look at that!" No doubt the woman was right, at least in the majority of cases. What a great way to nuke an otherwise perfectly good experience! Instead of which she could have been focused her attention on "What's right with this picture?" It may not have changed the facts: perhaps the restaurant hadn't prepared her salmon in a different way, and the waiter might not have arrived at their table in the span of 15 hours, however it could have altered her impression of the facts.
