Sumer time! Huzzah! Warm weather and less clothing and no need for mass transit because we have bikes.
Despite the fact that at various times in my career, patios have made the difference between me getting the nice coffee from the good coffee place and me settling for Tim Horton’s, I think eating on a patio is dumb.
It’s going to smell bad. If it is hot out and food gets spilled there is no way to fully clean it up before the next person sits. Then there will be flies or bees or both. I don’t even care if they land in my food or my drink, they gotta eat too. They land on my neck or my face while I’m trying to catch my napkin before it blows off of my always wobbly table and I feel like the world is just ridiculing me.
Wanna read a book or newspaper? Too bad, the breeze will ensure you read the same sentence 4 times, or that a leaf gets directly in the light you need to see the book.
We have come a long way to make it so that we don’t need to eat outside.
Let me be clear though, drinking outdoors is the best.
