Bon Appetit!

We were at the neighborhood trattoria today. My friend and I were laughing about how Rama was having a blast with the cheese. I guess what she was doing can only be called nagdidildil ng parmesan.

Rama: What's so funny?
Me: You look like you're having fun.
Rama: Yes, I'm having bon appetit!

To cap her meal, she had her favorite lemon gelato.

Me: How's your gelato?
Rama: Good. It's making me remember nice things. Like swimming. And slides.

She keeps on eating with eyes closed, remembering.

My friend pointed out that the mark of a real foodie was the ability to associate certain foods with distinct memories.

Rama has that. Plus a sharp nose. Many times, she would pipe in with commentary on scents from our kitchen.

I smell coffee.
I smell suka.
I smell wine.

Hi, Christine. Great to hear from you again. Been busy traipsing around, I gather? Yup, you gotta love her!
