“What’s your favorite way to eat fries?” he asked.
Some days I like them hot and fresh out of the fryer. I like them when it’s way too hot to eat but still I would reach into that paper bag during that short drive home, impatient to get salt and grease on burnt fingertips. On days when my waistline doesn’t concern me, I would dip them into the cold, creamy swirls of a vanilla cone.
Some days I like them floppy. You know the forgotten ones? The ones tucked in between the creases of the paper bag- hidden gems that are delicious in their own right?
And don’t tell anyone this but sometimes, I make them floppy on purpose.
Why do you ask?
“I want to know all about your favorite things. And I thought I’d start with the simple ones first.
How do you take your tea?”
