The Bench

I met Jody at N&N for lunch today. Unfortunately, we didn't get there until just past noon. The place was packed! There was no room on the bench. We tried sitting on the window sills opposite the bench and stalking the bench for a seat but the bench sitters wouldn't budge, no matter how longingly we stared at them.

So we ate our greasy lunches on the bench outside which I later learned was the looser bench. Apparently, if you're not cool enough to score prime real estate on the inside bench, you're banished to the outside bench.

So, we'll try again on Wednesday. We're going early. I booked a flight for Thursday morning to maximize benching's Wednesday or bust! Maybe I should start sitting at breakfast and just linger on the bench until lunch?
