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 we 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 is from JA Huss’ Bossy Tony. Imagine Italian food this good!
“The lasagna is so good, you’ll want to cry when you take the last bite.”
Interesting choice of words. Crying after it’s over. That’s why I’m here, right? I glance at Soshee over the menu. “Is that right?”
“Mm-hmm. And the Bolognese? I practically come before I take the first bite.”
I lean back in my chair, surprised, my frown sliding up into a smile. Now we’re talking about coming at the beginning. A switch-up. A very nice change, if I’m being honest. And an intriguing way to cement this new friendship. “Jesus Christ, Soshee. Now you’ve got me thinking about the way you bite and come.”
She giggles again. Yeah. She’s definitely an easy laugh. Certainly likeable. “I know,” she says, still giggling. “TMI. But seriously, the food here is good. You should eat. And don’t forget dessert. We have a bakery in the back…” She bites her lip and sighs, then looks around and whispers, “The cannolis?” She runs the tip of her tongue across the edge of her teeth. “Better than getting a blowjob in the alley.”
I can’t help it. I laugh. Loud.
“Shhh.” We get another dirty look from the aunt across the room.
“Sorry,” I say. “But—”
“So you’ll take the lasagna?”
She giggles again. Points at me. “Oh. You’re dirty. Bolognese it is. I’m off work in ten minutes, so I’ll bring two plates. That way we can come together.”
Thanks for stopping by today, I look forward to reading your Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts quote. Have a terrific Thursday and don’t forget to link up.
