Me: If I golf more, but walk, its like exercising.

Also me: If I switch to a spoon, I can get more of this food in my mouth faster.

So, who is comfortable going to eat at a restaurant by themselves?

Wife is out and on my own tonight. I always feel weird eating out non fast food by myself.

My wife has been gone for 3 months (taking care of family medical issues), so I've done a lot of solo restaurant eating. Feels a bit strange, but not enough to keep me from doing it.

I usually take my phone and THP or scan social media. A lot less "awkward" for me, at that point.

No problem. Sit at the bar(drinking or not), watch some sports, diddle on the phone.

Travel tomorrow and unlike years past, it’s the first time in a while. Looking forward to meeting up with some friends and then THPers later in the week. Exciting times

No problem here. Back when we still had a golf dome, I go hit a bucket and then on the way home was a small local restaurant that has great food. I'd go on Friday so I could get their walleye lunch. Walleye, prepared one of 4 ways, and 2 sides for $9.99. Hard to beat! Now that the golf dome has collapsed, I just go for the lunch!

I've never really had an issue with it. I've also never had an issue going to a movie by myself or things like that. My wife can't understand it at all though.

My wife is way more comfortable with it than I am. A few years ago she wanted to go to Paris for her 50th birthday, and I really wasn’t the least bit interested. She went without me, spent two weeks there and had an absolute blast. She did an AirBnB with a woman who turned out to be a French theater actress, saw all the stuff she wanted to see and did all the stuff she wanted to do. After she got back she told me “You just would’ve slowed me down!” 😆

Depends on the venue but like a casual place where I can watch some sports like BWW sure.. but if its a more sit down place I'd probably take it to go

Hope ya had a good meal tho!

Pizza was good. Yea, I picked as casual place as I could 😆

it’s funny/ironic. I spend almost every day talking to people for sales or in board meetings in schools, yet I can be very uncomfortable being around people outside.

My Koi pond is just a pond now. I let Arrow out in the backyard this morning and in the middle of the yard was something super bright orange. Looks like a heron or something tried to eat the big Koi but didn't get far with it, so he was just laying there dead in the middle of the yard. Of course trash pickup isn't until Thursday, so now I have a dead fish triple bagged in garbage bags in my outside freezer until Thursday. I checked the pond for the other two Koi and didn't see them. They were smaller so maybe they were easier to eat? Good times.

That’s one where you take a little drive to the local shops and drop the trash bag in the outside trash containers. They are usually picked up twice a week around here.

Smelly fish brings too many issues to my outside trash container.

That's why it's in my freezer in the garage. And it will stay there until Thursday morning for trash pickup day.

We got some not good news about my pup. :( I've noticed him walking gingerly the last couple of weeks, but this week he started limping. Took him in, expecting to hear hip displacia. Equally as bad, they think he tore his ligament under his knee(ACL). :( hoping and praying rest and anti-inflammatory meds is enough. I just don't think surgery is an option at his age and weight.20210420_163449.jpg
