On a fantastic fall day, three women dressed in pink decided to have lunch at a local Irish bar. They had never eaten there before.
It was Binghamton Restaurant Week, where people can have lunch or dinner
at various participating restaurants. Each has a special fixed men,
and a percentage of the proceeds go to designated charities. This bar was participating.
Entering, they were greeted by the owner, who asked "Have you ever been here before?" They said "No." Everyone smiled at the women. Was it because they were dressed in pink, the color of supporting breast cancer causes during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
"After you order", said the owner, "why don't you check out back, and see how I've fixed up the back of my place for special events?" The women took up his offer, and decided they would sit outside and eat.
In mid October.
Normally, weather at this time of year in upstate New York isn't all that mild. But today, it got up to 81 degrees F (27 C). They sat in the sunshine (sunshine!), talked, caught up, and enjoyed the breeze.
It just wasn't normal. It was a day to be treasured. A day viewed from an unusual angle.
But then, they had to return to work. But let's make believe they didn't have to. What might they had seen if they had walked in Binghamton?
I enjoy looking at things from different angles.
Maybe one day, they will take a walk together after lunch, and see what fall has to offer in upstate New York.
