fork, but because in the 20 years I had known him I had never seen him
eat meat!



Knife and forkin' a hamburger?? That's just wrong! That's hands-on
eating, like hot-dogs and... and... mashed potatoes.

Yes, it's so comforting to take a wad of mashed potatoes in my hand and
cram it in my mouth. :-)

Hmm - did he have a choice of his order, other than burgers?
At last - he wanted to be one of the guys?

Actually I've never run across anyone else who didn't like melon. He hates
canteloupe and pouts until it's all eaten because of the smell.


But canteloupe smells like breast cleavage... only *** males don't
appreciate melons.

I had never seen people fold pizza to eat it until I started shopping at
Costco. It makes sense, though, because the slices are enormous.

If it's a large burger, then I like to cut it in half, but I don't cut it
up by the bite.

It was called "Mom's Boarding House", and had the usual lunch stuff,
maybe two or three pages worth.

Well, our boss is female, and sometimes most of the group was female.
He also has two daughters and a wife.

Youns made me hungry for pizza, so that was dinner. Sausage
and peppers. Picked up the first slice, bent the crust in half and
ate it from the pointy end up. As it should be eaten. Proceeded
to repeat with the second slice, that was enough.

That's just to facilitate cramming more in all at once.


Not to be argumentative, but as Andy posted, if you get the combo (and I
always do, I think it's the same price), the stuff just falls off.

Whatever works for you is fine for you. For me, I usually treat pizza as
finger food.

Finger food, of course. Just like Pommes Frites and Asparagus.
Roasted or fried chicken, too. There shouldn't even be a discussion
about these finger foods.



Roasted chicken as finger food? You jest. Put Johnny away, Woman!
He's no good for you!



Of course, roasted chicken, too. How else can you get all the meat
off the bones? Only with your teeth and you have to hold the piece of
chicken with your fingers. And lick them afterwards.

The olives are on he way!

I use my fork; I hate getting my fingers dirty. If it's left-over cold
pizza, I can deal with finger food.

Soul mate! That's my reason for knife and forking food. It's the way I
was raised and it's impossible to shake it now.
