Am I strange?

Hello all. For a long while, I have taken a break from my work or whatnot and just relax by perusing menus from various restaurants that I have no opportunity to visit. I live in Middleofnowhere Midwest, but have been to some big cities (NYC, Chicago, LA) and some nice restaurants. In my own free time, I just like to look at various menus, and, out of curiosity, pick out the meal I would order. Does anyone else do this, or am I the only one?

  1. Certainly nothing wrong with doing that if you enjoy it! I wouldn't say it's strange. Sometimes I'll do this in my free time for local places.

        I do it all the time, also if I'm watching a food show and they mention a restaurant I'll check out the menu. My wife loves Ace of Cakes and while we were watcing I pulled up their website and ordered here a t-shirt for one of her valentine gifts, she loved it. I also like to read other cities newspapers, especially if their is something especially newsworthy happening. I'll also read the sports for the shock and awe factor if my Houston Texans happen to beat the local team. We're 8 and 8 the last two years, getting better.

      2. Not at all strange. Good on you!

        1. It's called daydreaming and we all do it about something or other. Enjoy your fantasy.
