Is there a dish you dream about? A dish that if you close your eyes and concentrate real hard, you can still taste, hours, day, weeks, months and years after having it? If I was forced to eat one meal for the rest of my life it would be the cream of chicken soup from the Grand Lux Cafe. It is that good.
“Hi Jill.” I have to break up with her. I can’t handle the pressure. I know she is waiting for a ring. I’m not ready for that. “How was your day?” she asks. “Great.” The waiter comes by to take our drink order. She orders a pomegranate margarita. I order a beer. That’s exactly what I’m talking about. Why does she have to order a 9 dollar drink? Why can’t she just order a beer? “How was your day?” I ask because I can’t think of anything else to say. “Great.” The waiter comes back and takes our order. “I’ll just have the cream of chicken soup.” Jill says. Perfect. That’s the soup everyone says is better then sex. I’ll let her finish her soup and then I’ll do it because I can’t spend another night with this woman. She tastes the soup and her eyes roll back into her head. “Oh my god, this is so good.” She takes another bite and savors it. Enjoy it women, it will be the last bowl of soup I buy for you. “You want a bite.” She asks and hands me her spoon. I take a bit. “That’s the best thing I’ve ever tasted.” “It’s good isn’t it.” Jillian said. “Here, have the rest.” She pushed the bowl over to me. Ok, maybe she’s not that bad. It’s not like she’s even mentioned marriage. She really is a beautiful women. And, this soup is good. “Brian.” “Yeah, babe.” as I put another spoonful in my life. “I don’t think this is going to work.”
What do you think is the perfect break up meal?

Tee hee.. LOVE it. You drew me in on the first sentence.. Hope you’re enjoying your AtoZ’s as much as I am enjoying them!
Great stuff! I enjoyed the way it flowed. As for a break up meal … Humble pie perhaps. Good luck with the next three weeks of A to Z
That’s good, to. We can all stand a little taste of humility.

I think the perfect breakup meal would be some kind of liquid refreshment.
Oh the irony!!
haha, my favorite.
That was awesome! Didn’t even see it coming. Perfect break up meal? Is there one? It’s been so long since I’ve had a break up that I don’t want to think about it. Let’s just go with your story, it’s perfect. 🙂
Thanks Tameri. BTW, are you participating in the genre workshop during the DFW conf?
Loved how that “turned” out! Clever and tasty, all rolled into one!
Thanks so much. That soup is so good.
ROTFL – dig that twist! And MMMMM cream of chicken soup! I heart soups, just generally, but I adore creamy soups, YUM! 🙂
Thanks Mina, but I think I am being to hard on the guys in my last couple of post. Stay tuned for a stand up guy story.
