A potential design flaw.

This wine wall looks nice, but ... unless this Montreal Trudeau International Airport restaurant hires 8 ft. wait staff they will have to be as hygienically aware as this waiter. At least while I am in the restaurant.

An alternate Emergency Exit.

If you find yourself in an airplane bathroom without toilet paper or tissue for a relatively germ-free exit, reach for this coat hook instead. Yes, this too is blessed with invisible toilet spray courtesy of those individuals who do not put down the toilet seat. But it is definitely a less touched item than the door handle. Why airlines do not include this useful piece of information during their safety briefing is beyond moi.

Another quirk of mine.

In my personal, humble, hyper-sensitive opinion, seeing kitchen staff smoke is as appealing as seeing kitchen staff exit a washroom without the benefit of a paper towel escort.

Two questions.

Do I spy beef-broth-cooling-unattended outside-the-back-door-of-a-restaurant-leading-to-a-parking-garage-on-Valentine's-Day? Now, what if someone were to drop their broken heart into the broth? Would the chef notice? FYI, the restaurant in question is not the Italian Bakery. Restaurant in question just happens to have bread delivered from the bakery.

Mind games.

I imagined a giant bed bug in place of the comb in René Magritte's painting Les Valeurs personnelles on display at SFMOMA and was quickly thankful his mind did not go there. His goal, according to the Wiki Gods, was to make viewers hypersensitive to their surroundings. Check.

Thankfully not alligator skin.

Sometimes I go to a restaurant for the food. And then there are those days when I just feel like a really good foot flush. This one can be found in celebrity chef Rob Feenie's Cactus Club in Edmonton, Alberta.

Obsessed for a reason.

London cab drivers are fined if they fail to keep their cabs clean.

We can coexist.

IF you wash your hands we can be friends:)
