I’m taking a cue from the Bubble People and starting a movement to outlaw all behaviors and habits I don’t approve of. First up: From now on (and with thanks to a wag on Fox News Channel), no one will be allowed to have a tattoo unless they’re a sailor or an ex-convict. Meanwhile, on the no-cellphone front, an accomplished FrontBurnervian recounts a similar unpleasant experience at Cafe R&D in Preston Center:
Don’t wear a ball cap there either on a Sunday afternoon. That’s verboten too, along with cell phones, reasonably priced meals and a fresh dining concept. (How much more like a Houston’s can that place be?)
(The cap was brand-new from the Four Seasons in Austin.)
I took it off at the request of the greeter, held it in my hand for about two seconds, and then said, “Ah, screw it. Let’s go somewhere else.”
Which we did.
