Comics and Pasta for Lunch


Yesterday, I had a very late lunch as I had to finish some important things. At 3 p.m., I was able to complete all the transactions that I needed to do, and at last, food! My stomach was shouting at me since 2 p.m., “Food! Food! Food!”.

As I was walking around searching for some place to eat, a small café caught my attention. I walked inside and there was no customer around. I was thinking twice whether to eat there since my husband taught me that if there is not customer then the food must be bad. But since my stomach was already protesting, I decided to sit and looked for the menu. Like in any other café, this café offers sandwich, hot and cold coffee, fruit shakes, pasta, and small meals. I opted for Pasta Alfredo and Blue Slush.  While waiting for the food to be served, I noticed a shelf full of some reading materials, I went to check it out and I saw lots of comics! From Marvel, DC, Peanuts, Agatha Christie, Garfield, and a lot more, I took several Snoopy comics book and one from Marvel.



I finished reading the Marvel comic when my order arrived. The pasta smelled delicious and looked yummy too. The drink which is the Blue Slush is colored blue as I expected. I sipped on my drink and its taste passed on my taste buds. The sweetness and citrus-like taste with added coldness from the crushed ice were just perfect to my dry throat as the temperature outside was so high. I immediately dug in my pasta. It tasted good, the pasta which is penne is al-dente, and the sauce is creamy with herbs and chicken. After several bites of my pasta and slurps of my cold drink, I felt that my stomach had been pacified, so I switched my attention to Snoopy and at the same time hitting my penne with fork.

 The Marvel comics I first read was about Namod, the prince of Atlantis who fell in love with a girl in the land who has a father that owns a business that drills oil in the Atlantis. While eating, I also started the first Snoopy comic book I took. It was funny as the comic strip was about Snoopy’s experiences on tennis. As I finished half of the pasta, I also finished reading the first Snoopy comic book, so I opened the second book, this time it was Snoopy’s experiences on being healthy. I could not help myself but life while reading the comics strips but I tried to control myself since I was alone and the waiter might think that I was not in the right mind, but I still let out some laughs when I was not able to hold them.

As I took the last bite of pasta, I also closed the cover of the comic book. It was a good experience to have a good food, good laugh, and good old comics. I will come back, that’s for sure.
