Solo dining in a lovely restaurant with a good book for company is incredibly pampering. (I read it online, so it must be true.)
Since I’m all about looking out for number one these days, I grabbed Educated by Tara Westover (excellent, by the way) and headed out to Pescadores for my most favoritest breakfast ever–huevos rancheros.
I’m an early riser, so I arrived before the Saturday morning crowds. Although the restaurant wasn’t full, there was only one small table left…in the back corner literally beside the bathroom. (No exaggeration…I could’ve opened the bathroom door and turned on the light without getting up.)
Since listening to people pee (or worse!) while I lingered over my eggs and coffee didn’t sound particularly wonderful, I asked for a different table. My server was a bit grumpy, threatening to make me move back to the bathroom if they got busy and needed the larger table.
Sigh–not the best start to my Self-Care Saturday, and further evidence that the world is not set up for singletons.
However, a day that starts with a side of guacamole can’t be all bad–am I right?
