Dining Out

A nocturnal craving for beer and barbecued isaw (pork intestine)

Rumor has it that I’m pregnant. I’m not. I just get cravings at times.

Two weeks ago, after vegetables and fish for three successive days, I wanted meat in a bad way. Even I was surprised. In our family, it’s an accepted fact that Speedy is the most serious carnivore. On the second day that I cooked no meat at all, I jokingly asked him if he was already going on withdrawal and said he was not. Surprisingly, at the end of the third day, it was I who found myself going on a withdrawal. I wanted meat. Grilled meat. The wicked kind.
