Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #69
Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’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 my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me 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.
This week, I’m sharing a Hungry Hearts quote from Relativity. Ethan and his father are meeting each other for the first time, and Mark is pretty nervous… then again, so is Ethan.
My Hungry Hearts quote:
Mark’s stomach rumbled. He glanced up across the road at the red and yellow signage of McDonald’s on the corner, and contemplated grabbing something quick to eat. Ethan needed lunch too, and he’d probably be happy with a burger. Twelve-year-old boys loved fast food. Didn’t they?
As Mark queued and stared at the colorful backlit menus, it dawned on him that he didn’t know what his son liked to eat. Did Ethan have allergies? Was he vegetarian? Mark had no idea. When it was his turn to order, he panicked and bought almost everything on the menu. Cheeseburgers, Quarter Pounders, nuggets with every flavor of sauce, salad wraps – enough for twelve people, not two. He carried the heavy brown bags back to the bus stop, the greasy smell of French fries sticking to his clothes. It was too much food.
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.
