“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.
