After the show, I was riding back to my spot and rolled past The Courtesy Diner. Although these places always seem stuck in time, with elements of the 50's through to the 80's permeating the cracked vinyl stools and pitted chrome table caps, the food usually disappoints even if the aesthetic is perfect. As I was heading out, I saw Brian checking out my bike, and we got to talking. He'd met Christy at work "after he got out" and they've been together for a few years now. You can't help but smile when you meet a couple who seem genuinely happy with each other, and in Brian's words "every day with her makes me want to be better than I was." I liked these folks.
