True Tales of Downtown LunchRooms

 

I had to take insulin before eating, so I would get my food, calculate for the meal and inject, then enjoy my meal.

I was sitting on the back wall, and it was later in the lunch time zone, so most of the eating area was empty – I had the whole row to myself.

 

There was a man at a table for four and a woman at the stool/bar side of the room.

She left hurriedly, but I didn’t think anything of it until the security guard came running.

He looked at me, eating and reading a paperback, I glanced at him.

Suddenly cold and realizing, he was looking for a junkie shooting up.

I am not sure how the woman confused me – morbidly obese middle aged – with a junkie, since they spend their money on the drugs rather than food and tend to be slender.

The security guard shifted from one foot to the other and I returned to reading.

but not to that place for lunch again.
