Lol Good one Sheree! :) Yeah it is so uncomfortable not hiding behind anything. Where do you look? How do you eat?! It does seem torturous and kind of pointless, I can see why people wouldn’t do it.

I love your words ‘deeply envious’ and ‘delightful indulgence’. Actually after having a kid, I relate to those feelings even more. It is such a treat to eat without having to yell, clean up spills, and shove food down as quickly as possible… Lol Instead of worrying about what everyone else is thinking, I think ‘Ahh, a meal in peace. Woohoo!’ I don’t envy the families and couples eating together — because I know I could be doing that any other time.

So Sheree, where and when do you reckon you’ll enjoy delightfully indulging dining out alone? :) Can’t wait to hear about it! :)
