For at least 15 years of my career, I was traveling to different locations for a variety a projects I was involved in. I will be honest, I loved every minute of it. The only downfall was a lot of meals at restaurants on my own. I've always been a self-assured person, so dining alone was never a problem for me. However, when I started on this high-flying career, cell phones weren't part of the picture and dining alone was really on-my-own. Now, dining alone is never really alone. Last night, I had dinner at a restaurant all by myself but, I was never far from friends via text messages. It made me think how greatly things have changed. I can dine alone but, I'm not really alone. I'm having lively conversations with friends while I'm dining.
I have to tell you that when this whole "text message" idea struck me, I had to ask the waiter to take this picture for me. Bravo to him for accepting the challenge and doing a great job of getting exactly what I wanted.
