Eating Out (Part One)

13 Mar


As I mentioned in my last post, The Chef and I traveled last week. Several times during my meals this past week The Chef said to me,

 "You know what I think would be great? It would be great if you could just concentrate while you are eating."

Apparently she gets a bit miffed when I raise my head from eating to gaze around the room. When eating out, I sometimes like to do this repeatedly every few seconds during a meal. After all, we are traveling!  And there might be something new and different I might miss!

When I pointed this out, The Chef said my curiousity during mealtimes makes her feel "exposed."

Doesn't she want me to learn from and enjoy my new surroundings? I am getting mixed messages here.
