Last night SG and I went out for dinner to one of our local Indian restaurants.  The place was rather quiet, but the food was of high quality.  What spoiled the experience was a troublesome fly, which appeared a little while after we had started eating.  It persisted in buzzing around 2 pairs of waving arms indicating that it should do otherwise, and support from the waiter, who started waving a napkin around.

 

We don’t get troubled in this way in most of the restaurants we go to regularly, but the ‘fly problem’ does seem to be more frequent these days.  I would be somewhat wary of blaming this on global warming, but the fact that we have had a succession of relatively mild winters would lead to the conclusion that there are an ever increasing number of these annoying insects intent on spoiling our evening.  If this is the case, then restaurant owners will need to look into less obtrusive ways of keeping flies at bay.  Burning incense would be fine with me.  A hangover from my pre-lapsed Catholic days maybe, but I do like the smell of incense.
