leaves to sniff: pennyroyal, dill, bergamot, sage, geranium I have no idea what two of those are.
fruits to smell: early apples, fresh strawberries I’d rather eat them, thanks.
Italian cheese toast Yeaaaaah, toast!
peach/banana/cream, yellow/pink/gray/sand color combinations I don’t like light, warm-y colors. Too beachy.
yankee ingenuity That sounds kind of like an insult. Like, ha ha, those silly yanks and their thoughts.
roast boneless duckling flambe YOU WOULD ROAST A BABY DUCK!? WHAT THE FUCK!?
roast pork Alright, that’s more like it. Roast them when they’re old.
ties the width of lobster bibs No… just… just no…
uneven parallel bars So, what the author is really saying is, she likes to see people injured.
viewing everyday surroundings with a tourist’s eye I do that anyway.
the delicious smell of cooking food and the hustle and bustle of the preparation This was one of the best parts of Thanksgiving; spending that whole day prepping and cooking and mixing and whipping. Yeaaaaaah.
the ketchup that collects at the lip of the bottle What the fuck kind of sick person celebrates the crud in the lip of the ketchup bottle?
Welcome Back, Kotter (TV show) Never watched it.
an eat-in-the-rough restaurant I’m not entirely certain what the author means by this. In the rough? Like… like rustic? No tables or chairs? What, do people sit on the grass? In the mud? This confuses me. Now I need to Google. I found a Lobster in the Rough restaurant and a Diamond in the Rough one. I’m still confused.
cherry tomatoes stuffed with deviled ham That sounds gross. Let’s look at some. Hey, they’re cute!
driving under an overpass during a storm This is annoying if you have huge driving anxiety. It’s like a tease. “Ha ha, you thought you were free!”
chew face or smash mouth = kiss Oh my god, I never knew that was what Smash Mouth meant…
fresh ginger muffins That sounds lovely. Let’s get a visual. Fuck, yeah.
coffee steeped with cinnamon sticks and cloves and then iced Let’s see this one, too. I like food porn. Yeah, drink dat shit.
regional offerings on the menu Depends on the region. Some places, they consider it regional to just dip everything in beer batter and fry it.
