The food in the new restaurant was delicious/different/challenging.

Recently divorced after a weight gain of 75 pounds and the wife running off with the butcher, Harry was now on his own and fending for himself, so when there was news of a new restaurant opening in town, he was all for giving it a whirl.

The Blue Habit was warm and welcoming inside, and he took a seat by the window to peruse the menu without having to strain his eyes.
Prices were reasonable and he decided to order something basic, so settled on bangers and mash with onion gravy.
The smell from the kitchen had his taste buds watering within minutes.

He could certainly say the food in the new restaurant was different.
Harry was used to colour on his plate as the ex had always seen to that when dishing up his meals, brown or white meat, roast, mashed or boiled potatoes, peas, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, swede, beetroot, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, even the occasional sliced pineapple or peaches.
However, this was taking colour co-ordination too far as everything on his plate was blue. As to how it tasted he couldn’t say, as he suddenly lost his appetite.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  3. A great piece of fiction – learned that bangers were sausages and wondered if blue is same as bland – unappealing and often tasteless. I so enjoy your stories. 🙂
