I’ve officially spent one year working at The Integer Group. For my diligence, I was awarded a company-wide email acknowledgment of my service, a signed certificate in a cheap, plastic frame…but best of all, I was allowed to pick a restaurant for an afternoon luncheon for our studio team. I thought about it and casually tossed off the fact that we would be going to Luby’s. Previous expeditions had been to Blue Mesa (twice), Chuy’s and Sammy’s BBQ. Luby’s was sort of a joke, but I stuck to my guns. We ventured out today to the Mockingbird location. I think everyone enjoyed it. You got a choice of what you wanted to eat — whether it was veggies, steak, spaghetti…etc. Lots o’ iced tea, rolls…and the comfortable ambiance enjoyed by retirees everywhere in Texas. As predicted, we were probably the youngest diners in the joint. Who cares. There was no offensively loud music being played over the intercom and plenty of elbow room. I enjoyed a cajun tilapia filet with mac and cheese and pinto beans.
