I had a conversation with my fiancé just before reading the prompt for this post. He wanted to take me to dinner to celebrate (oh, haha, I don’t think I mentioned that I got a shiny new promotion at the day job that comes with a raise!), and he asked where I wanted to go eat.
“What are you thinking?” I asked.
“I don’t know, maybe Indian? Or maybe Thai? Chinese is okay too!”
“I’m having Indian with my sisters tomorrow. I could do Thai… or Chinese… or Japanese… or Sizzler (a steak sounds good).”
“We could do sizzler,” he said. “That sounds good. I think they have fish.”
“I’m pretty sure they do. Or… the fish place… don’t we have a gift card? What is it called?”
All of that, and we still don’t really know where to go for dinner. Sometimes I think there are way too many choices and it isn’t very often that you decide on one and it ends up being exactly what you wanted.
Except pizza. Pizza is always something I crave and want and love. The only thing that lets me down sometimes is the place we get it from. There are some amazing pizza places and there are some that aren’t up to par, but I still manage to enjoy it, just not quite as much as my favorite pizza places. I don’t know, though. Now that I’m really thinking about it, I haven’t had really bad pizza in a long time. Maybe I’m starting to figure out the places I like to go and learning how to avoid the terrible joints. I’m only 40. That didn’t take too long…
The worst is when you really start to like something at a certain restaurant and they take it off the menu. I really loved the Baja salad at Wendy’s but I only ordered it every once in a while. A couple of Saturday’s ago, we went there after the gym and I ordered the salad and the lady didn’t even know what I was talking about. How long has that thing been off the menu? I honestly couldn’t even tell you, but Wendy’s hasn’t been the same since.
What about you? Do you have places you love to go or certain types of food you like to eat?
