We had a write-in Sunday (I wrote over 1,000 words! Wheeeee!) and our hostess Charlie said she would provide bagels and diet coke. Awesome combination, but whenever I hear bagel, my mind automatically adds “and lox.”
So I did what any good chicklet would do. I got some nova and cut up some tomato, put some capers in a container (which I just realized I left at Charlie’s house) and headed over to share in the bagel bounty.
But I didn’t count on one thing. They were cinnamon raisin bagels. Which, while good with cream cheese, don’t really go with lox, capers, or tomatoes. *sigh*
My mind was so insistant on bagels and lox that I had it anyway. Without capers. And while it wasn’t the Best Bagel Evah, it was enough to satisfy my mind’s need for the food combination.
It did teach me one thing. Next time, I’ll find out what kind of bagel is being served. Thanks for the good day, Charlie!
