For weeks now, whenever I drive NY Route 690 toward home, there is a billboard that catches my attention, and every time I see it I think to myself – I need to do something with that.
It’s an advertisement for Mike’s Hard Lemonade (not sponsored) and it boasts – “What laughter tastes like….” Hmm. I see you, Mike. Very clever advertising. I mean, who doesn’t want the taste of laughter tickling their tastebuds as often as they possibly can? I definitely have that in common with the marketing team from Mike’s – laughter is one of my favorite flavors.
So that got me thinking… What tastes like laughter to me?
Most recently, laughter tasted like sirloin skewers with red and yellow peppers marinated in Italian dressing with a side of pasta salad. Some years before, laughter tasted like margarine…I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, to be exact. And there’s that time it tasted like unsweetened chocolate wafers straight from the package and into the mouth (“If it’s good enough for Pop, it’s good enough for me.” ~Lauren).
I share here three of the many many foods that are guilty of either being the catalyst for laughter (I’m talking to you, margarine & chocolate), or for mingling with laughter to produce a mealtime that’s simply unforgettable.
What’s that famous quote? So much amazing food, so little time. Was that it? I can’t remember…
Anyway, I can safely say that anything that tastes like laughter will forever be a close second to my numero uno all-time favorite food ——>Mom’s meatballs straight from the saucepan! And let me tell you – these are no laughing matter…I take Mom’s meatballs very seriously! 😉
What does laughter taste like to you? I’d love to know!
Have a great week, my friends!
