JCCFS – just ignore the stoned chick

So I happened to be near the front of the lunch line, and they have a separate table with the vegetarian food already laid out. There was paper covering the dishes. I marched right up and removed the paper, got my plate, and began serving myself. Someone behind me said, “Um, m’am, we usually wait for the blessing before we serve our plates.” I turn around and everyone is standing around the tables.

I wonder what shade my face turned – would that be cadmium red or alzarin crimson?

It will be difficult to make myself go back into the dining hall. It’s hard enough having to sit with a bunch of strangers pretending to be a “people person” but now I have intensely embarrassed myself two meals in a row. This is my problem, not theirs. Everyone has been extremely nice.
