tue 29 jan 2008 22:00:00 roy's restaurant, desert ridge resort
you guys's nights
there are four restaurants at this resort. dinner alone at the bar at roy's, a sprawling hawaaian asian fusion sorta thingy. filet okay.
making conversation. the young hostess at roy's who leads you to your table (which can be quite a long walk):
"how are you guyses nights going? are you all staying at the resort?"
at one point i'm on the way to the WC. a man named bob, augmented with electronics over one ear, accosts me rather abruptly to ask if i am enjoying my evening. i have to stop and turn and ask him the same. i get it why they want to go out of their way to be friendly, but sometimes the intensity of it, the desperation, mucks up their timing a bit. later i overhear bob saying
"take care gentlemen very much! enjoy the rest of your evening!"
