Sometimes my facebook page is kind of like a blog, and I want to add an occasional feature, called something like "My fiction picks from the web," primarily but not exclusively gay-themed but chosen for their universal themes that would perhaps appeal to my non-gay friends and relatives. One of my all-time favorites—I think its title was something like A table for one, but I was unable to find that with Google—is... [SPOILER ALERT...] ...An older gentleman makes a reservation for one at a French restaurant that he and his late partner had often frequented, decades earlier. The snooty maitre'd gives him a disdainful look, tells him his preferred seat is unavailable—notwithstanding that the restaurant is almost empty—and masterfully conveys with connotation the idea that the older man is not of the class of people that the restaurant would like to attract. The man accepts the ill treatment, but a young waiter intervenes, even "clocking out" so he can share a delightful meal with the older man. [OK, I think I have given enough detail here. It is such as great story, and I don't want to give it all away, if I don't have to.] The story is one of my very favorites, I hope there is a version that's not on the site that also has the pure filth in which I sometimes love to wallow, or the site with a picture of two young men, bodies pressed together but the bases of their extremities clearly visible from the side. Those things sometimes appeal to me, but probably not to the people I would like to share this with. Thanks in advance, peter
