My friend and I
had lunch and
Tuesday Chatter


A friend and I went to lunch today.
She wanted to go to a deli downtown that is relatively new.
Fine with me.

Of course, we went at noon because we were having lunch.
Downtown is the State Capitol and home to the University.
There are lots of offices, shops, restaurants, apartments,
and a large hospital in the city center.
Everybody has lunch at noon.

Took awhile to find a parking place.
When we did find a place it was about four blocks from the deli.
Not a problem.
Except neither of us thought about putting any money
in the meter, until we were almost at the deli.
So, back we went to pay the meter.

When we got to the deli it was crowded but
the line to order moved quickly.
Too quickly for us.
They had a gazillion things on the menu board
and never having been there before we had to read the whole thing.
Okay, finally we ordered and paid.
Found a booth and our food was brought to us.
We haven’t seen each other in awhile and had lots to talk about.

The music was LOUD.
There were a lot of people talking LOUDLY.
Neither of us hears all that well.
We talked and talked but didn’t
really hear much of what the other said.

The food was a bit pricey.
My friend liked her sandwich.
I didn’t care much for my salad.
I did like her potato chips.

Still, seeing my friend made it a nice Tuesday.

  1. It sounds like all in all you and your friend had a nice time. Thank you for linking to Tuesday Chatter. I always appreciate your support.

  2. Lunch out is fun, but so much better after 1 PM when everyone else goes back to work! We have one restaurant here that is always very noisy, it is impossible to carry on more than minimal conversations. I don’t like noise very much. I am glad she had good potato chips if your salad wasn’t all that tasty, and I’m especially glad you got to spend time together!

    1. It’s been a long time since I have been downtown at lunch time. I had forgotten how busy the city is. I was disappointed in the salad but I will go back again and try something else. The visit was fun and that’s what counts.

  3. Meeting a friend…wonderful! Noisy restaurant…boogers! But now you know. I like to have lunch slightly earlier or later than noon. Seems to work better for me.

  4. Lunch with a friend, especially on you haven’t been in touch with for ages, is special. Trying out a new restaurant together is an experience but sometimes disappointing. Too bad your menu choice wasn’t to your liking. ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Yeah, the salad was bleh but I will go back and try something else before I take them off the list of places I eat. Lunch with a friend is the best!
