16. Went out to lunch today with my husband
We stopped on the way to the restaurant and picked up a National Enquirer. When we got to the restaurant we got the hostess to sit us near the buffet table. Then I pulled out the National Enquirer and made sure the "shocking" headlines were visible to those in the buffet area by draping it over the back of the chair facing the buffet table.

Over the course of an hour, we noticed people cocking their heads to read the headlines while they were filling their plates. We noticed people nudging their companions and pointing to the tabloid. We noticed when they looked upset or when they looked like they were expounding on the headline stories. A couple of times, when the buffet area got a little crowded, we had people strike up conversations with us as they waited for access to their buffet favorite. We had also had three people who stopped by the table just to talk about how bad the McCain-Palin ticket was for our country. Finally we had people who would walk by and make little comments like, "she's so fake" or "why did he/McCain choose her?" or "I'm for Obama". It was fun.
