So there’s this new restaurant in your neighborhood. You walk by it every day. It’s looks like a decent place and as you pass by, you wonder if you should try it out. One day while walking by you decide to check out the menu. There are several items that appeal to you, so you stop in for dinner. You order the grilled chicken, but the waiter tells you that the special today is lasagna. You say you’ll stick with the chicken, but the waiter insists that this is the best lasagna you’ve ever tasted and you really must try it. Again, you decline and order the chicken. The chicken is pretty damn tasty. So tasty that you return to the restaurant again, soon.

On your second visit, the waiter again recommends the lasagna. Again, you decline. “Lasagna is too rich,” you proclaim, “I’ll have the salmon.”

Third visit, same routine.

Fourth visit, you relent. The lasagna smells really good, and you do love lasagna, so what the hell- you order the lasagna. And…it…is…fabulous!

So fabulous that you return the next week, and order it again. It’s even better than you remembered.

So of course, next week, you go again. You order lasagna…yum…can’t wait…BUT- there is no lasagna today. Disappointed, you order the grilled chicken. It’s still pretty damn tasty. But it is…not…lasagna…

Next trip to the restaurant, still no lasagna. The grilled chicken is good, but, of course, it isn’t lasagna. You ask when lasagna is going to return to the menu. You chastise the waiter for getting you hooked on it. If he’d never made you try the lasagna, you’d be perfectly happy with the chicken. But after that lasagna…you feel…unsatisfied. The waiter responds “What lasagna?” “Excuse me?” you look around the place. Have you entered the wrong restaurant? You check the waiter’s name badge. Is this a new waiter who just looks like the other one? The other waiter who tempted you with lasagna and now denies it? No, same place, same waiter, same grilled chicken. The lasagna however has mysteriously disappeared and apparently is not to be spoken of.

Hmmm? You like the restaurant. You like the grilled chicken. You want the lasagna. Do you keep going to the restaurant? I mean the lasagna may come back, right? You’d miss the grilled chicken. It was damn good lasagna….

    F the lasagna!
    If the Lasagna left, he --err -- it was all for the best!!!

    NEVER go back to the chicken...it will forever hold second banan-err-fiddle to the lasagna -- that left.

    Instead -- try the salmon.... they always return home to err -- you know.

    sigh - I've now forgotten if we're talking food or men or what....

    but I've found myself (again!) going to the store!!!
