Compliments

So, since Di got paid today, we opted to go out for dinner. Nothing fancy, just ran down to Applebee's, but hey, I didn't have to cook. Anyway, we were just doing our thing, relaxing, having a drink, talking and laughing, remarking on the extraordinary features of our waitress (seriously, she was hot). When dinner arrived, it was the manager who brought it over, which surprised me a little. I'd seen him walking around, just generally greeting the patrons, etc., but not delivering food. He said "I would have stopped by earlier, but you guys were talking and I didn't want to interrupt!" We laughed and chatted with him for a few minutes, and he came out with "I see a lot of people, every day, who just sit here and don't speak, or barely talk, or who just have that look that says 'how can I get the upper hand in this conversation', and it's nice to see two people who obviously really enjoy each other's company. You guys are just really happy together."

I see that, too. At breakfast a few weeks ago, we sat and watched an old couple who didn't say anything - or even LOOK at each other - the whole meal, except to say "Are you ready to go?" It squicked me out to think of being that quiet with the person I was with.

Anyway, it was a really cool thing for a random person to say to us, and it felt good.
