This Experimonth has been enlightening: it’s not hard to find people to join me for meals. When I don’t have someone to eat with, it’s because I choose to eat alone. There is always someone to eat with if I just ask, be it co-workers, friends or family. Now that I’ve actively been pursing finding some meal-time companionship I realize how important food is to the social make-up of society. Ok, I was aware of it, but I had never really thought it was important to my life. It’s probably similiar to having to learn from your own mistakes. I have learned that it’s probably one of the easiest ways for me to maintain/nurture/build friendships.
I know a lot of the bloggers were looking forward to Twenty-Eight Tables to converse and connect with their families. I basically just started blogging because a lot of the people who I really like were blogging. I’m not a grand thinker. I don’t analyze things (although I’d say I’m analytical at work so who knows). I wasn’t expecting to actually find myself really getting a lot of connections goin’ on. I’ve been eating lunch with co-workers that I haven’t spent time with in years. I’ve been spending more time with new and old friends. It’s just cool. I hope I keep it up.
