Table for One

34 Comments

With the coronavirus rampant, the rules for dining out have changed. I’m waiting for my meal to be served, but am keeping well away from Anneli, my waitress, while she brings my daily breakfast of sunflower seeds.
I hate to do this to my girlfriend, but we just can’t share a table anymore – not until this pandemic blows over. For now, it’s a table for one when I eat out.
Okay, I’m ready to eat. Hope she’s more careful today. She puts the seeds in a little jar, but she always ends up spilling some. What a waste.
HEY! Stay away, Della. Don’t you know the rules for social distancing? That counts especially here in the restaurant. We don’t want to get closed down here too.
Okay, dear, just keep calm. Stop your scolding. I’ll make sure to save you a few sunflower seeds.
Now, where was I? Oh yeah. I want to thank you bloggers for watching this video I’m featured in. Thank you for your patience.
Now if you’re ready, I’ll show you how to peel a sunflower seed without fumbling and dropping the seed inside. Heck, I’ll even show you how to do two at a time, and in record time. Watch carefully.

Thanks, guys! Now why don’t you go over to Anneli’s webpage and check out her great West Coast novels and her copy-editing skills at www.anneli-purchase.com

  8. I love that this little guy is with you by choice–a pet but free-ranging one. My dog would never leave me either. He wears no collar (though I must leash him when we walk through the neighborhood).

    • That’s one thing I like about the squirrels. They look after themselves and they respond when I help them out. Glad to hear your dog is so well-behaved and also that you leash him just the same when you walk through the neighbourhood. The right thing to do!
