Before offering an opinion...

The question around the table was not so much what to eat, but what to draw.

I had joined a few friends for dinner at a restaurant that places a large sheet of paper over its linen tablecloths, together with a few crayons, for people who care to doodle while they wait for their meal. Judging by the number of "artists" at our table, it's not easy for most people to resist leaving some kind of drawing or message on a blank sheet of paper.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
