DH and I usually go out for bkfst on weekends. And we have a usual place where we go, the kind of place where everyone knows your name and the staff know your order.
Today we went somewhere different. Because they have waffles, and I LOVE waffles. There's nowhere else on island that usually has nice fresh waffles. So we went there.
I saw my principal. With his lady friend, not his wife. Having a nice romantic breakfast, I guess.
At first, when I walked in, I almost stuck my head around the room divider to say hi. Then I realized who he was with - so I went to the other part of the restaurant, and sat down. Principal and lady left shortly after that - DH saw principal walking to his car, but didn't say anything, he thought he was looking not great.
So - discretion. There's always the question of whether or not to say hello in a situation like that. Do I embarrass my principal, or do I pretend I didn't see them? I of course chose the latter. I'm not sure why, but it just seemed like the right thing to do.
