Picky


"Depending on the taste, I may or may not ask you to buy these tortillas again."

The Teenager just said this to me while fixing his bean burrito in the kitchen.
I tried a new brand of tortilla and he was suspiciously hopeful.

The Teenager doesn't talk very much, and most certainly not about food.
If he comments about food at all, it is to say that he hates it,
or he just gives a thumbs up while chewing.

These are the things he will eat:

Ramen Noodles (chicken flavor)
Cheerios
Macaroni and Cheese from a box
Bananas
Bean Burritos
Pizza
and Toast

Anyway, from the kitchen he just yelled the above comment and my ears perked up.

"They're really big!" he called out.

Then he said, taking his burrito to the table to eat it,

"It's been an honor working with this tortilla.
It is a fine tortilla.
But it really all comes down to taste."

A connoisseur of fine foods in my midst.

Teenagers have a list and a mind of their own, don't they? At least he communicates his likes and dislikes.

Mmm, my basic comfort foods, except for the BB. Once, while on a steady mac 'n cheese/ramen/toast college regimen, there was a super special on BBs. That's all I'm going to say. Sorry, can't bring myself to spell it out--haha. I'm sure the BB connoiseur, however, has a certain honorable flair with them!
