(MLS: My Love Story – Part 3!)
At this point, we were still getting to know one another. Not dating each other, but I was starting to be interested in him.
We were setting up a table for dinner (small groups rotated taking turns providing a meal). There were caramels at the end of the table and I took a bite of one.
Jeff: “How’d you like those caramels?”
Me: “Pretty good. Not the best I’ve ever had or anything, but pretty good.”
Jeff: “I made those.”
Me: “Umm…Umm…I mean, they’re really, really, really good!”
Open mouth and insert foot! He handled it nicely, but I was embarassed. (The kind of embarassed that immaturely said I should never talk to this man again and should just go bury my head in the sand.) And, again, impressed that this 30-something year old guy makes homemade caramels!
- Before you critique food, make sure you know who made it.
- A guy who makes homemade caramels is awesome!
