So you don’t like pizza. I get it. But I happen to like Papa John’s pizza. Not just any other pizza, those at Papa John’s are the ones I like. We’ve danced this dance before. I ask where you want to eat, you say:
Really? Anywhere? To which I retort:
Papa John’s! (or more often, Mcdo!)
Then you say –
anywhere BUT there.
Then why don’t you just say where you want to eat and I’ll let you know if I like it or not? At least if I just go along with what you want I don’t sulk and bitch about it so much. How many times have we eaten Chinese food that I don’t totally like but eat anyway?
And I really wanted to have Papa John’s today. It’s not everyday I ask for it. When was the last time? And though reluctantly, you said yes.
There must be something in that menu that you would like. Not your favorite, yes, but edible. Laman tiyan. So I ask you to order what you would want instead of leaving it all up to me. And with your annoying voice and your annoying facial expressions, you say:
Ikaw na umorder. Kahit ano.
Wow. Really, I can order anything? Here I am giving you the opportunity to choose as a compromise. We’re in a restaurant you don’t particularly like, we might as well order something you’d at least try to eat.
So I tell you we should leave and just go somewhere else. At that point I am not upset yet. I just really would rather move on to somewhere else than look at you sulk in front of food. You say no, just order. I won’t. You won’t. No order. So what’s the point in staying?
So I walk out. Drive to the nearest Jollibee and get takeout. You still don’t order.
Ang gutom, talo.
*I don’t like writing about fights, but this is to trivial I’m sure someone out there has a funny story to share about a similar senseless fight.

I can relate! Sometimes I let things like that pass, but most of the time it just annoys the crap out of me.

Vera, hello! Thanks so much for dropping by. I’ve missed visiting your blog, but things have been very busy over at my end with the new baby (new! he’s a toddler now!) and going back to work full-time (albeit home-based). Anyway, now I’m really curious about Papa John’s pizza. Would you believe I’ve never tried it? What would you recommend?

I haven’t tried to eating at Papa John’s yet and there is a branch in Galleria. I guess I’ll try when we next visit that place. And with this trivial place I now miss my K. He never argues nor fights with me. But I lost him..

I can so relate to this. They keep on asking where you want to eat.. and you choose but it is like NEVER your choice.

Awww..so not nice to fight over food nga…Might I suggest, take out or delivery na lang from any of your personal choices then eat together…sounds like a good truce? Or, if you really want to dine out, choose restaurants with a wide variety of food, like buffet style…that way, no pressure on ordering kasi you get to choose what you like on your plates.
October 27, 2012 @ 4:07 pm
hmmm, favorite q dn pizza either sbarro or shakeys, na d naman maxado like ni hubby, so what we do was to alternate, that way we get the chance to please each others appetite 😛
