Yesterday Vince asked me “Where’s your favorite place to eat around here?” It had to be a trick question because what matters to Vince when eating out is NOT what I like but where we get the most food for our money. Here’s my response, not verbatim, of course.
I like Magic Noodle but I know you don’t feel like you get enough food for the money. I like Boomer’s when we haven’t been there too often. I love sushi but I know you don’t like it. I used to enjoy a good steak but now that we get such great meat from J-H, I’d rather eat steak at home. I like Chick-Fil-A but we’ve been there too much. I can’t eat a hamburger. I guess Mexican is my favorite if we can’t find good fried fish.
I’m sure that answer totally confused him. Heck, it confused me!
I know exactly what’s going to happen today. The pallet store got in new pallets yesterday and he’s going to want to go there. If he could entice me by offering to take me to my favorite restaurant, he would say “I’ll take you to eat at where ever if you want to go by the pallet store with me!”
I don’t want to eat out. I don’t want to go to the pallet store. I want to stay home . . all day!
Who thinks I’m right?
There is a Thai place I like and Vince thinks that for the money, you don’t get enough food. I didn’t mention that but it’s not too far from The Pallet Store. He might offer to go there. That’s one offer I might not could refuse.
We’ll see what happens. I almost want to giggle every time he walks into the room . . wondering if he’s about to mention it. 🙂
