very nice, rant.
the unknown philosopher.
It suddenly hit me as I showered this morning that my wife will NEVER drink coffee with me. I sort of knew it subconsciously, but it never sank in.
She only drinks alcohol if the the drink tastes more of sugar than of alcohol
She never uses alka-selzer or cough syrup, "Because it tastes bad." (I have been known to take an alka-selzer before bed when my stomach was fine,
I just wasn't sleepy.)
Her put-down of Jaegermieister is that it 'tastes like cough syrup.' I saw that as a whole 'nother selling point. I like niqyl, too; but it's
only a quarter alcohol.
She says that coffee "smells wonderful but tastes like poo-poo." (Ah the fruits of a masters-level vocabulary!)
She doesn't like the smell of my espresso-maker; I wonder if that's what you were referring to, Rant?
My cigars were always a point of contention. I know it wasn't about cancer risks, because she liked my pipe tobacco (french vanilla). I quit
cigarettes and got "off the pipe" when she said "yes." Haven't sparked a bowl since.
I suspect that women just don't like sour foods. I crave them.
I understand totally that some people just aren't "the marrying kind." I had given up on long term relationships, and actually sworn off marriage,
when I met a pert young thing that rocked my world, on every plane. Her touch is still like an electric shock, after 6 years of marriage. Speaking
of, I think I'll go wake her up now. . .
