A Midday Meal

I am currently on the west coast eco trippin'. My coworker and I were enjoying our lunch on a gorgeous heated patio. The view was superb. We were eating seafood under blankets on leather chairs by the fireplace. It was the best.

I love to people watch so I was checking out the patrons. There were people from my desired occupation -the ladies that lunch, a group of guys that had to be in a rock band, a few romantic couples, some locals that might work in the area and behind my left shoulder were three attractive guys. That's when I had to steal another look because one of them looked like he could possibly be Ben Affleck.

My coworker and I began a deep conversation over our crab. We were going back and forth, "It is him." "No it couldn't be." "Umm, he really looks like Ben." "Yes, oooh... I think it is." "No. His hair was shorter in the photos from the Toronto International Film Festival." "Right. He's most likely back in Hawaii." "Does Ben smoke?"

Finally we determined that it wasn't him but it was his smile that made him look so much like the Hollywood movie star. Too bad.



Find out how I'm doing on this latest eco trippin' adventure over here.

Darn. If only it had been Ben. But the speculation was probably great fun!

Last I heard, Ben was in Tanzania with my boyfriend. Sounds like a great trip - too bad we're not all with you this time!

Gabriella said...

I'm thinking it was him too and you're just not telling ;-)

I love that you took a photo - because I would have done the exact same thing.

If it was him I would be totally disappointed that Ben was smoking.

Lisa said...

OH that's wild. How cool! Sounds like a fun place to eat too.

That was probably my brother. He's totally a smoking Ben Affleck clone. And given your location, it's entirely possible that it was!
