Table For One, Please

100 Word Wednesday: Week 14

Douglas and I come to Ryan’s Best, weekly—occasionally more often, if he’s bent on telling me his latest genius idea, or to vent about whatever has him aggrieved.  Up or down, Douglas is loquacious; I suspect he’s bi-polar. 

Certainly he’s egocentric, narcissistic—though usually likeable.  He believes himself possessed of superb mental health…because his therapist finds him “fascinating”.

He talks on and on, and I employ my ability to appear engrossed while actually pondering a separate topic entirely—specifically the next table, the old gentleman always sitting alone.  Wondering if he’s lonely, heedful, I’m tempted to join him.
