Do you love to eat out as much as I do? It's the whole thing....
I love to get ready to go. I love to think about what I'm going to order, I love the smell of food as I walk into a restaurant and just the whole idea that my growling stomach doesn't mean that I'm going to have to do anything but tell someone else what I want and then I wait for that exact beautiful presentation to be placed in front of me.
We got to experience this on Saturday evening with our friends Ted and Rolanda.
Sorry about the really horrible camera phone pictures! You look so cute with your new hair, Rolanda!
We were told by our waitress that we were very fortunate to have a table since we didn't make reservations.
Last time Jason and I came here there were only about 6 people in the place for the entire evening! But tonight they had every table full....And one table that was set for a very important guest.
A local celebrity, a former congressmen was coming in to dine right next to us.
Oh yes, we were eating with the big names!
The Shakers and Movers of our little town.
Now I can't tell you his name but you've got to know that my sister in law Regina, and I just get the biggest charge out of informing each other when we have ****** spotting's.
Our husbands don't find it nearly as funny as we do. But trust me it has amused us for years and that's saying something.
Just so I wouldn't look like a complete stalker and so I wouldn't embarrass my dinner party(after all it's hard to convince anyone to go out with us to begin with) I waited until after they had left to take the picture of the empty chair that hosted a certain someone for 3 hours.
Again sorry about the hideous,blurry secret, camera phone.
Seriously I could have blown my straw wrapper right at him Regina! I knew you would be full of jealousy!
So anyway as he and his friends pulled away in their BMW's and Hummers I wondered what life is really like on that side of the fence. What would it feel like to walk into a restaurant and everyone pause to look at you as you walked in. I wonder if it's really easy to compromise what you really believe. I wonder if you are always aware that you are being watched by people?
I don't think that would be much fun. And once again I realize there is a price that celebrities pay.
It makes me happy that I am a nobody from nowhere who no one knows.
