After action report:
Great breakfast interaction - best in weeks and the coffee was hot!
ClumsyCandy and her "traveling companion" made our day. Good to meet you both - you make a nice couple. I really believe that women OCing are our best public relations tool and today the WH was graced with a pair of those strong, independent self-reliant souls.
As you two left, you missed the highlight of the day - four pairs of eyes followed your departure all the way to your vehicle. One of the ladies suggested that "she must be a police officer." I spoke up and simply replied. "She's not."
The lady looked down & saw mine and said, "Can you do that here?" That opened up a very positive exchange - they were from Delaware and we discussed the differences of the laws between the two states.
Before we departed, everybody in the WH knew that there were four people OCing there today. Stand up conversations, trips to the restrooms and paying at the counter pretty well insured that and there was not the first negetive word expressed.
Best compliment of the week received from a very tall gentleman in the booth opposite me when he asked what type of gun I was carrying and said it was the prettiest he had ever seen.
The interaction, the opportunity to show the public that we are indeed the good guys and gals is a primary reason for having these breakfast meet-ups. That and everybody needs to eat anyhow - and I ain't going to do it naked.
