Burritos: A life changing experience
So this is Happiness
An Ode to a Burrito
So Boyfriend and I (read: I) wanted Mexican food last week. We have an On the Border near us, but the service is kind of terrible (and my coworkers were going to eat at the restaurant next to it, so we figured the odds of us running into them were 104%). I googled, and found a hole-in-the-wall place that we could get some takeout from. It was like a tiny pizza parlor – we could have eaten there, but there was no alcohol available, so we picked up burritos and guacamole and brought it to my place.
Naturally, we poured some wine and sat down to eat. First, the chips and guacamole. They were DELICOUS. The chips were pretty greasy, but in a delicious way (okay, in a “my insides would die if I ate these chips often” kind of way. But still delicious).
Then….the BURRITO. I got a vegetarian one. Firstly, it was HUGE. Like the size of a Chihuahua, approximately.
|It might not look like anything fancy from the outside. Do not be deceived.|
And it was DELICIOUS. And huge. And delicious. It was like eating heaven, if heaven were in Mexico and meat-free. Boyfriend’s was chicken, and I’m pretty sure he liked his too.
|I didn't even remember drawing this one.|
He managed to devour his, while I ate about 70% of mine and wrapped the rest up for leftovers. I didn’t want to get to a place where I felt absolutely sick and it turned me off of them – you know, like when you drink way too much coconut rum and vomit and get an aversion to coconut rum even though its delicious and not the rum’s fault?
|I know I drew this bad. Also, Boyfriend told me I did. So yeah. They can't all be winners.|
Anyhoo, delicious. Boyfriend liked it, but not as much as I did. It was kind of a life changing experience for me. I wanted to have the capacity to finish the burrito at once, but I couldn’t after all that wine and chips and salsa. I went to bed like this:
Guys, I LIKE food, but not usually like this. This was special. I just wanted to spoon Boyfriend and burrito all night long, and feel fulfilled in life.
[Linking up with yeahwrite! Also, apparently it's the "week of the haiku" which is super ironic because do you all remember when I gave you a sneak peak of this post on Friday? It was, a-hem, a burrito themed haiku.
Make my mouth water
With all your deliciousness
So I'm psychic or it's fate or something like that. Pretty much, I'm awesomesauce. You're welcome, universe.]
