Have you ever wanted to be "a regular" at a coffee shop or some restaurant? I always glance at those people who chat it up with the waitress enviously.
My closest to this would be at the Sultan Bakery. We had a chocolate bar, a big foot, and two coffees- every week- usually on Wednesday mornings. But we didn't really talk to the sassy owner. I listened to the others- everyone seemed to know everyone. Everyone but me that is. The grocery store was the same way. How do you break the barrier? Am I just unfriendly? Do I need to introduce myself? Hi, I'm Becca, I live here now, so you can start including me on the town gossip. Maybe it would help if I lived somewhere for more than 2 seconds.
I'm hoping by eating more locally I'll get to be a regular with a few people.
So my question- How do you become a regular?
Are you a regular anywhere?
