Re: Oddball Question

I would rather sit in a comfortable chair with a nice size table facing the person I am sitting with. Most people would, and most resturants in Manhattan are set up that way. How about a table that is set up with a U shaped configuration? Over the New Years run I had lunch at Mel's Diner in San Francisco with two friends, at one of those u shaped tables. It was easier to grope my female friend, though after trying that maneuver one time she gave me one look that told me if I try that one more time, I might not make it back home in one piece. I would have claimed that it was an accident, however she knew me well enough to know that that was not the case. The good news is that there was enough room at the table so that I could eat my meal without any elbows in my way, and as long as I kept my hands to myself, I wouldn't have to visit any hospitals in the bay area.
I have had meals in NYC at tables with four sides. When I came with another person, the waitress left it up to me and my companion whether to face each other or sit on the side of each other. At most bars you sit side by side, however it is easier to adjust a bar stool for better angles. In St. Stephen there is a line about what a lot of fleeting matters you have spurned. I don't think that Robert Hunter was talking about how people sit in resturants, though I do believe this thread has covered this question thoroughly. Unless someone else would care to share their thoughts.

George on Sienfeld said he thought it was unusual, and that was about it.

As far as groping goes, we'll that's a two way street.

And for having covered this topic thoroughly, we still haven't answered the question.

Inquiring minds want to know.

It does help if groper and gropee r both on the same page. There is only one way to find out.
Did I miss something? Was there a question here? This whole groping thing inspired me to lose track of what we are discussing here. To which my female friend responds shaking her head with an exasperated look, saying "men!"

The question is why do couples sit on the same side of a booth instead of across from each other.

Happy gropes to all!!

You should both get one and sit on the same side of the booth to drink it.

Thanks Burt, your post gave me the best laugh of the day.

I was listening to Niel Young's Pocahontas when I wrote that.

"And maybe Marlon Brando could be there at the diner,

To sit and talk of Furthur shows, and the setlist we desire.

And we'll sit there, like the Stooges Three.

Marlon Brando, W Lewis, and Dave."

You know, something like that.

We tend to sit next to one another, especially in a booth. My man prefers it and it is fine with me either way.
I never really gave it that much thought, truthfully and never realized anyone else was giving it that much thought either!

So it's just a case of personal preference.

I can appreciate that.

I was just wondering why one day and decided to ask the forum.

Thanks for your response.
