I waited for the soup to come, I sipped my tea and then discretely
attempted to capture video of myself seated at the table. Everyone was
minding their own business, and there was enough buzz in the restaurant
that I actually created a few video clips of me talking into my phone at
the table as you will see later.
After a few minutes, the girl working behind the counter brought me my
soup, and we both said thank you and that was that. I was a complete
girl sitting in the coffee shop ready to eat lunch. I took my time
stirring my soup to cool it down a bit and broke the slices of bread
that also came
my meal, and little by little, I ate my soup, nibbled on the bread, and
enjoyed my tea. It also goes without saying that I enjoyed the entire
atmosphere sitting there at the table with my legs crossed in my denim
skirt and long boots.
As I was eating my meal and observing things generally in the
restaurant, I noticed that the patrons were bussing their own dishes
over to this little cabinet and sink area in the middle of the
restaurant. This area was quite close to my table, and so I actually
took video of me walking over to that area to bus my soup dish. There's
really not much more to tell about the outing, especially when I caught
bits and pieces of it on video.
did realize that during my meal that I would need to use the potty
before I left, and I could see the sign pointing towards the restrooms,
but I didn't know what the configuration was until I actually walked
over towards them to use them. Like most smaller establishments, they
had a men's room and a ladies room with a single toilet and then a door
that the occupant could lock keeping everyone else out. It goes without
saying that I proudly used the girls room, and after locking the door
behind me, I just had to take a few selfies in the mirror.
Even if the ladies room had stalls instead of the single toilet, I still
would have used it based on the reaction (or non-reaction) of the other
customers in the restaurant. I doubt hardly any of them thought of me
more than just a middle-age woman there enjoying her tea and a light
lunch, and I certainly felt like a complete girl the entire time.
It was a super fun afternoon, and I'm really glad that I made the
journey downtown to enjoy a nice lunch. Everything went so smoothly, and
I'm sure this isn't the last time that I'll eat a fun lunch when running
errands downtown. Until then, I'll let the video do the rest of the
