ON SOLITARY EATING

I really disgust this idea about our society’s conclusive sensitivities towards people who go out alone, dine out alone, and why there is always this social sanction that;

‘Maybe she’s a grump’
‘No, maybe she had fight with her husband’
‘Hmmm, no, perhaps, she lost someone’
‘Forget it, she’s just a loner’
‘She’ve taken the whole slab, can we exchange seat?’ Yahhh!
etc… etc….

just when you're alone .. lol

I've devoured everything on the table.. ;)
Waahhhh, give me a break, can I just eat without kids running around, without much thought about - what do you want to eat? Aren’t you eating? Finish your food? You know this mommy bla-blas when eating out with kids.

Don’t this people know I’m romanticizing this solitary eating I’m into? This is the only ‘me’ time I have.

So the next time you see people eating alone, give them much time they need er give me much time I need.

  2. That is sooooooo true. We all need our alone time and dining alone should be no different.

  6. LOL i can very well relate to this. i eat alone frequently and people don't seem to mind--until i had dinner at TGIF one Saturday night [i was actually passing time while waiting for my turn at the nearby spa]. the manager approached my table and "interrogated" me--why i am alone? don't i have a family, friends, husband, bf? God! if she wasn't a young, innocent-looking girl, i would have given her some verbal slap...naawa lang ako. hahahah di na ba pwedeng kumain ng tahimik???

  13. I don't know, but when I was working, kapag sweldo,I used to treat myself by dining alone and I never felt "lonely" or "out of place" or neither I have a feeling that the people around me think that way, maybe because I really don't care! LOL!
