Lunch With the Unabomber

 

The best of friendships is built around common interests,

laughter and inside jokes

The best of friendships is built around common interests,
laughter and inside jokes.
We accept our lapses of important information,
details of where we were yesterday or last week,
who starred in that wonderful movie and
what our plans are for tomorrow.

The two Pat’s and I began with yoga which naturally leads to lunch.
When Wisconsin weather warms we seek outdoor spots.
A little over zealous in late spring on a sunny but windy day,
hardy souls, we give it a try.

A well-kept secret is a hotel
with an outdoor restaurant set up like a beach;
tables with umbrellas, sand dunes and a plastic whale.
It turned out to be a bit much.

The first Pat put on her sunglasses to shield against the sun
then donned a black hoodie against the wind.
The waiter looked at me weird when I asked
if he thought Pat looked like the Unabomber.
But she really did!

I often test the second Pat:
will she be able to pick out my car in the lot.
The first Pat is frantic to go back for her sunglasses
which I see through the rear-view mirror, are on her head.

Just last week as we finished yoga
I asked both Pat’s if they wanted to have
another lunch with the Unabomber.
And, yes they did!
