My BF Jolene says she is not really a coffee connoisseur but more a coffee consumer. She loves coffee. Can't start the day without it.
Johnny Mike declares ( as in "I declare") that there's no such thing as bad Bar-B-Q! He loves dry rub, wet sauce, KC style, gas station style and even drive thru fast food style. Loves, Loves, Loves it. If he were 7 years old he would marry it!
Now compare and contrast that attitude with the people who will consume only the best. They very delicately reject or only reluctantly partake, so as to be polite, any substandard offerings. They tolerate only the best, their standards are high.
I don't particularly like "peeps", however, in the event that "peeps" are the only candy available, I'll eat "peeps". What if they're old, hard and dry? Yep. Not my first choice, but candy is candy. Sugar is still my favorite flavor. Some people like strawberry, some chocolate, some caramel...me? Sugar. Love it, can't get enough of it.
PS Makes the fact that I'm always trying not to eat it even more heroic (in my opinion, at least).
Next blog? Is this an addiction? Could I benefit from 12 steps? Why does self-control always involve denying myself of things I like? For instance, I can exert self-control over radishes, but for some reason it isn't really necessary.
