Took My New iPad to a Buffet…
Sort of a test run. Didn’t plan on doing any writing, just mostly setting up a bunch of programs on my iPad, including Microsoft Word and Outlook.
Got interesting, to say the least, but 90% there. Only killed the only email I have left twice, but managed to save it both times. Yikes…
Even set up a word doc that I can use sort of for a template. And wrote the start of a story.
The first line of the story is…
“The 1950s called and they want their food back.”
Yup, the buffet I was in was that bad. And I like 1950s food sometimes.
This was at the Main Street Station, a stunningly beautiful buffet. I used to really like it before the pandemic, but something broke (besides my tastes) during the pandemic. The buffet itself was half the size it had been, a couple trays of deserts instead of a full island. and it cost $25.00 or so total where it used to be cheap.
Luckily we are moving the in-person workshops out of downtown so no one will be tempted to try that place. (Stay tuned for that announcement.)
But it was a good place to work on my iPad and in 90 minutes I even saw one waitress come close. I was hungry when I got home.
I will go back when I start the official project and the book to do an article and a story. But it is a ways down the list now.
But I like that first line. Might actually use it.
