Some things are just social events. Watching a movie in a theatre, bowling and eating at a restaurant to name a few. If I do any of these things alone, I become acutely aware of all those around me who are not doing it alone. I’d eat at home if I were home, but I am not. And I am also not a fan of room service food. Unless you’re staying at a hotel with a very good restaurant, it’s just an overpriced diner.
So, here I am, at the Hereford Steakhouse in Leawood, Kansas, eating alone. It’s good steak, this Midwestern beef. I just wish I had some company.
