|Clean Plate Charlie is sooooo over it!|
The Voice's peeves have included steak fries, touchy feely waiters, prime rib, and menu story hours. Today Sietsema rolled out his most despised overused food words, a list which embarrassingly included several of my own guilty pleasures (in bold, below). Interestingly, the bulk are adjectival. A friend suggested that most of the words Sietsema has listed, while annoying in a food review, would be most welcome in the bedroom (with the possible exception of "wilted" and, perhaps, "garlicky").
I've included a few alternates, and I'd love to hear your nominations. And waiter: Extra big bollocks of whipped cream on that pie, my good sir!
Dollop (substitute: bollock)
Slathered (substitute: slapped silly)
Crispy (New Times Editorial handbook advises, ehem: "The word is Crisp.")
Eatery (sigh. so many restaurants, so few words for 'em...)
Tuck Into (get one's chew on)
Gently Priced (ghetto)
Guilt-Free (100 percent risky free!)
Well-Spaced (? I have no idea what this means)
Rustic (see "comfy")
Boite (see "eatery")
Resto (see "boite")
Next time: The Plater Hater really can't stomach the restaurant Birthday Serenade.
