|Not Judi in New Jersey|
Could it be? Out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw Judi Dench having dinner at a lovely farm-to-table restaurant in my favorite seaside city. Right and left brains collided simultaneously because— of course— Judi Dench would never be in Cape May, New Jersey (though I hear Tina Fey weekends there).
The "Judi Dench" I saw was the one in "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel", after she started accessorizing with Indian jewelry and colorful scarves. It's the role I most imagine is the Judi Dench of real life, but I've no way of knowing for certain.
This lady— who was not Judi Dench— was a Woman of a Certain Age with a great deal of style. I loved her colorful, striped sweater, dangling jewelry and spikey cropped hair. She was engaged with her dinner companions, smiled often, listened well, drank wine and even ordered dessert.
She was directly in my line of vision. It was just the two of us, my husband and I, out for dinner. Love means not having to keep up a roaring conversation with your date of 48 years to have a good time.
