That said, denial is a very special mechanism and it can work wonders. I decided to look around the place and see how many people were laughing, since that seemed like a good way to avoid my thoughts. I counted seven, not including those with perpetual smiles on their faces. Right then, in this place, life seemed pretty good for everyone. Even the chef was smiling. It's easy to remain in your own little world, if you want to. I wasn't ready to leave.

"Another?" said the bartender.

"Yes," I replied.

Very touching, Katy.  We've all had to make split-second decisions that aren't always the best choice...and had regrets about it.

Love your description of waht is "typical" in our SF food scene :)
