Sunday Solo Dining

22 03 2015

This was somewhat unexpected.  I had to work from around 7:30 pm on a Sunday evening.  It was kind of drizzly and though I had an umbrella it was leaking (yes, leaking) and I was getting wetter and wetter.  Decided to take refuge in an Italian restaurant close to where I was supposed to go to as it was still early but by the time I got there I was soaking wet on my head (just my head becuz I did have an umbrella which protected me from the rain except that it didn’t stop the rain from falling on my head) and I looked like a wet rat or so I thought.

Though it was Sunday and I was just one the popular restaurant told me I could only stay until 7:30 pm.  Worked for me and after I explained what had happened as I knew I looked suspicious it did seem as though they felt sorry for me…


Sat at the counter.

It was great that they offered everything in “half portion”s.

Ayako, it’s difficult to imagine you looking suspiciously disheveled, but I’ll assume it’s a Japanese thing. It did seem as thought you deserved to be rewarded in advance. Ken

No one walks w/o an umbrella even in the lightest of rains in Tokyo unless you left home w/o one when the forecast said to carry it and you couldn’t find a convenience store nearby. To a lot of people here how the English do not necessarily bother with one could be a mystery, I think.
