Writing and Place

I'm at Panera right now, obstensibly to bulk up on latte carbs, pastry carbs, and the carbs that just float through the air in places like these. After my three day Gatoraide diet it had sounded pretty good.

In truth I had hoped to get some writing done. Sadly, there are three mothers with about six kids under five years old all sitting by me. I have a better chance of being hit by a bus while sitting in the store than I do of getting writing done right now.

And shoving food in their mouths only quiets the older ones. The ones in high chairs think dinner is reason to shout between spoonfuls.

Highly Recommended
