Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts
Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookworms. So many of the books we read have food or drinks in them, some we’d love to try, and others we’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes… If you want to participate, you can grab our logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to us in your own post.
The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Please link up beneath, and visit other bloggers who are participating in Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts as well.
My quote this week comes from Jana Aston’s Good Time. This is a little taste LOL of Payton and Vince.
“How did you know I wanted tacos?” I ask, stepping back to allow him inside because show me a girl who doesn’t open the door for tacos and I’ll show you a grasshopper. I know that made no sense, but really, what would have? Show me a girl who doesn’t like tacos and I’ll show you… what? That idiom was destined to fail from the start. Anyway, I let him in because we’ve got the whole married thing going on so it seems like it would be rude to make him eat tacos on my doorstep.
“You mentioned it fifteen times last night?”
“I did?” God, what else did I mention? I’m fairly proud of my memory retention but I don’t recall anything about tacos.
“You did. Right before you told us the frat-coon story you said that you should never have given us the choice between A, tacos and B, pizza because you really wanted tacos.”
“Oh.” I tap my lip with my finger. That does sound accurate. Nothing against pizza, I just really wanted a taco.
“Then you sang about tacos during karaoke.”
“Stop it. That did not happen.” I walk the ten feet to the kitchen table, Vince right behind me.
“I love tacos,” Vince starts in a voice that is clearly meant to be mine as he sets the takeout bag on the table. “I love tacos for lunch or dinner. Beef or chicken, it doesn’t matter.”
Wait. That sounds familiar.
“I love them with lettuce and shredded cheese, jalapenos on the side or they’ll be denied.”
Oh, God. I was rhyming. Goddamn tequila.
“Soft or crunchy, they’re always yummy.”
