Relationships and food
I’ve said before, I think, that most of my relationships involve food in one way or another. One of my friends said to me today, that one day I will have to have a relationship that doesn’t revolve around food. I kind of disliked her implications, we all (well, most of us anyway) eat three meals a day, is it so bad if I like to use those as an excuse to socialise? Then I came to thinking, that in the beginning my friendship with her did not involve food, it came to later on, once we already knew each other, and our relationship is most certainly not defined by food. Some of my friendships are, but few enough. It annoyed me, the way she said it, as if I cannot have a relationship with someone that doesn’t involve food and the implication that a relationship that was more than friendship could not involve food. I don’t know why it grated so much.
On a happier note: the croissants were a resounding success and enjoyed by all – although I now most definitely feel that I am one step closer to a heart attack.
