Sunday Writing Prompt — The New Restaurant

“So, what did you think?” Anita asked.

“The food in the new restaurant was different,” Clark said. “I wish the chef’s style was more in line with my tastes.”

“You make me laugh, Clark,” Anita said. “Ever since you recovered from that mild case of coronavirus, you said you’ve lost your sense of taste. So how could the food have been more to your tastes?”

“That’s not the point,” Clark said. “All I’m saying is that it was a letdown. And this whole idea to trudge to this restaurant in the midst of a snowstorm because you read a good review on Yelp was your idea.”

“Hey, why are you taking a jab at me?” Anita asked. “We’re moving at the end of the month and we might not have had another chance between now and then to give it a try.”

“And since we’re moving anyway,” Clark said, “why even bother giving it a try?”

“You’re impossible,” Anita said.

Written for the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Sunday Writing Prompt, Creating Context. This week we are to selecting one of the highlighted words in the following sentence:

“The food in the new restaurant was” delicious/different/challenging.

Also for Pensitivity101 Three Things Challenge, where the three things are “food,” “wish,” and “style.”

Also for these daily prompts: Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (laugh), Your Daily Word Prompt (trudge), Word of the Day Challenge (jab), and Ragtag Daily Prompt (moving).

    Hah! And if it is in Southern California, the restaurant would be closed before Clark and Anita move away!

    I just had some red wine, a few nights ago, which I thought I had bought at Trader Joe’s. I liked it a lot, and I wanted to buy some more to take with me to visit my cousin for her recently-passed spouse’s birthday. Then, I found out I didn’t get it from Trader Joe’s. It had been ordered when I went to a wine-tasting dinner. It’s a hundred dollars a bottle. But, that night, I hadn’t been impressed with it. All i I can say is the pairings hadn’t been done well… in my opinion.

    Nice job with so many prompts. I think I tend to agree with him… better to not try it and find out you love it only to move away and never be able to go back.
