Sweet or Savory?
Tom took me to an Italian restaurant this afternoon where I ordered a garlic chicken pasta dish. The waiter smiled pleasantly and asked, "Do you like garlic, reaaallly like garlic?"
"Yes, I LOVE garlic."
Assured that I would be okay with this obviously garlic-strong dish, he stepped away to put in our order.
"I really DO love garlic," I repeated to Tom, "and onions, and herbs. MMMM. I guess I'm savory oriented."
We both paused as he gave me a knowing look.
"Yeah, I do love sweets, too. Do I have more of a savory tooth or a sweet tooth? I don't know. Both, I guess."
Sweet and funny and little off his rocker.
