The coffee shop is virtually empty, which I’m glad of. I found a comfortable couch with sufficient light to read my book and socket nearby to keep my inactive / wifi only phone charged. I don’t know what I’d do without this place. It’s the only place in Rochester where I feel both safe and somewhat normal….just another patron reading her book or playing with her phone. I am the only loner though, as always. I don’t get the impression that any of the “normal” people here would ever want to start a conversation with a freak like me. But I’m not in my “cut off” apartment and I’m safe. I’ll stay here as long as I can, until it gets busy. It is Memorial Day weekend and o figured that most people would be out, making the most of the 3 day weekend and the nice weather.
But I’m a freak….a freak about to humiliatingly lose a discrimination case. I have nothing to look forward to and no one to spend any time with. This is just marginally better than being holed up in my apartment.
