Yes, yes, I'm back on my quotes "thing". This time, let's talk about quotes about and around food.
I've heard several recently and for some reason I find them tremendously visual. As previously discussed- I see in pictures, so the imagery provided with the food metaphor is a good one for me.
Last week during The Jane Austen Book Club... this one was dropped... "He looks at me like I'm the ice cream (long pause) and he's the spoon."
Tell me, that you don't see a complete visual of how he looks at her, what that look means and what it means to her to be looked at that way. *sigh*
And today a classic came up at work... "Life is like a box of chocolates... you never know what you are going to get."
I think of Christmas when everyone has the boxes of assorted chocolates... some people are daring and pick up any, some study very carefully the diagram of what chocolate is where before they choose, still others poke the chocolate to see what's in the middle and afterwards take it or move on to check out the middle of a different one.
Again, tell me, you can't see different people in your life who approach life in one of those 3 fashions- dive in and take what they get; careful choose their moves after thoughtful consideration; and finally, take a little peak, dip their foot in to test the water and then either jump in or run in the other direction.
