So I've joined this cute tradition started by my friend Kailani, as it's perfect for a laydown low Friday. And although I did do some shopping today for the girl (alas, I did purchase some cheap T's for myself), I will save the recently acquired items for a future Friday Fashion Foto Shoot. Let's stir things up a bit with Aloha Friday. These are Kailani's words:
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing heavy or thought-provoking.
For my first Aloha Friday, I thought I'd approach the hubs for something that was light, funny perhaps and definitely fun. Because I'm doing this after 2 glasses of Cave Spring Riesling (2006 , yes a very good year) and a Pomtini, so I'm not thinking too clearly. Some of his suggestions:
1/ Do you pick your nose when you drive?
2/ Don't you feel violated when you smell someone else's fart?
3/ What do you do if someone comes up to talk to you and they have a huge booger hanging out of their left nostril? Do you tell them, or do you do your darnednest not to stare at it, and leave it alone?
No, I don't think I'll ask any of those. Men -- don't you just love that little boy that never grows up?
So, here's my question of the day:
Do you like Salty or Sweet?
You know, according to Chinese Dim Sum rules, you're not supposed to mix the two. You have to eat up all the salty stuff, before the sweet. Can absolutely NOT have the sponge cake or egg tart or mango pudding, before finishing up the Har Gow or Siu Mai. I'll be honest, though, I personally don't think that desserts are the showcase of Chinese Cuisine.
Perhaps that's why I tend to like salty in general, as in chips, pretzels, cheezies, popcorn, pistachios, nachos. The salt around the margharita glass ... yum. Although I do like desserts, I can do without. I would gladly abandon dessert if promised a delectable appetizer. Escargots, grilled calamari par exemple?
So while my teeth are thanking me, I don't know if my arteries are.
