sharing is loving

I ate them all.

Not in one sitting mind you, but I did indeed eat them all.

They were so good.  Yeah, so very good.

I don’t regret it.  And I wouldn’t do it differently if I had to do over.

Pleasure without conscience, Gandhi has said.

Now I shall have to make them again.

This time I will exercise self control.  I will.  I am capable.

This time my pleasure shall be broader than my taste buds, my salivary glands, my stomach enzymes.

This time gustatory intimacy  and relationship intimacy shall merge.

Lucky me.

Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.  ~ M.F.K. Fisher
