On Bank holiday Monday just gone, a dear kind older couple in the Cong decided to take me and my good lady out for a slap up meal, to try to cheer us up after the recent upheaval in our life.
Somehow I ended up with the bill.
Anyway, this was the local italian trattoria were we often go, and are on first names terms with the staff and quite a few of the other regulars. Big Mistake!!
Just as our first course comes Yes you have guessed our kindly older brother just stands up and says a prayer quite loudly, everything goes quiet, even the waiters stop serving until he finishes.
Embarassed........ you bet!
Mind you the Lobster Thermadore was exquisite and I managed to drown my sorrows in the excellent Chianti Classico.
Have any of you enjoyed a long meaningful prayer in your fave restaurant?????????.
