Learning On The Road

I had never stayed in Bed & Breakfast before, until this past Tuesday. I can’t even begin to tell you how dirty it was.

Not the B&B so much. My room was a bit garish and a couple of spiders lingered in the Jacuzzi tub, but it was a nice room altogether. It would be a hoot if I were here with my girlfriend or spouse.

And then the light went on in my head. And then I realized that it was I who felt dirty. A single guy at a place geared towards couples. Needless to say, I turned in early. The next day at breakfast felt very awkward between myself and two other married couples in their 50s. The silence was deafening as I tried to focus on eating a breakfast of microwaved sausage, rubbery potato pancakes and scrambled eggs with little bits that looked like Styrofoam particles.

I was out the door and on the road faster than you can say check out. And I’ll stick to hotels and flophouses.
