Today I was at a conference, where I met some people I know from another company and we got chatting. When we broke up for lunch we went to the hotel's restaurant together. The tables were set with white tableclothes and little blue vases with flowers and looked really pretty. So I said: "Oh these look lovely", and the guy standing next to me goes, "take a photo of them"! Which had me going "uh?" since I couldn't work out why I'd want to take a photo of a table. He must have realised my confusion, because he elaborated: "you took photos last time we went out for lunch"!
The conclusions I drew from this exchange are:
1. He must have a much better memory than me, as I don't recall the last time we had lunch together, let alone whether I took any photos.
2. I'm developing a reputation that I'm not sure is very flattering.
3. People must think I'm mad to be taking photos of table settings - but perhaps they'd think I was even madder if they realised I actually took photos of the food.
