Dine?

I wonder:

Does anyone out there "dine"?

I, for one, don't. I "eat."

It's lunchtime.

Guten Appetit! I "dine" only only when followed by "out" on a particular incident, i.e., when I am able to regale fellow diners (attendees of dinner parties to which I am fortunate to be invited) with the details of said incident. Cf. "Six Degrees of Separation", which largely consists of Flan and Ouisa Kittredge (Donald Sutherland and Stockard Channing) dining out on the bizzarre events that they have been privileged to be part of. Cameo appearance of Kitty Carlisle Hart worth the price of admission! To tell the truth!
BTW, your system does not accept my HTML tags, which explains why the movie title is not in italics. Just to let you know that I tried.

Hilarious, Norman! I like the idea of someone who dines out on a story, sometimes for years.

I'd forgotten that Kitty Carlisle Hart is in Six Degrees. But I saw her again not too long ago in Radio Days.

To make italics here, just add < i > and < / i > (without the spaces).

P.S.: Kitty Carlisle Hart has a website: The Official Website of Kitty Carlisle Hart.

Thanks, Michael! I don't use HTML a lot, so I always forget the slash in the close, which was the problem. You will recall that Kitty Carlisle's cameo in Radio Days was a song about the man shortage ("They're either too old or too young"), which segues into the episode with the husband-chasing aunt Bea (Dianne Wiest) and invites her date home for a glass of milk. He was brought to tears when he heard a song in the background. It reminded him of his late fiancé, Leonard. Well, that was the end of that. Poor Bea. Not as bad as being abandoned during the War of the Worlds.
