Time Traveler

I worked late several nights last week. One night, I stopped for supper on the way home at Waffle House, one of the few places open that time of night.

Eating at Waffle House always makes me feel as if I've traveled back in time. That tiny, open grill diner atmosphere just feels like something out of the 30's or 40's to me. I feel like I ought to be wearing brown leather shoes, smoking Luckies and drinking black coffee while I call everybody "Mac" or "doll."

Is there any other place that can make you feel quite so temporally disoriented?
