Taste Like Nothing

It’s hot in the Florida sun, especially at the beach.
So, I was interested in ordering a cup of Thai bubble tea with Boba.
I ask the lady:What does it taste like?

Lady answers:The boba [taste] is like nothing!

I ask:Can you put in a lot of boba?

She says:Tea sweet, but no more boba.

I ask: Why?

She tells me: Because it’s nothing.

I try again: But if it’s nothing, why can’t you put in some more?

She says:It’s tapioca, but it taste like nothing and I can only put in a handful.

My final try: Ok, give me some Thai tea with the boba in it. 

Lady:Are you sure? It tastes like nothing.

Me: Yes, yes, yes.  I love boba with nothing taste, just make sure the tea is plenty sweet!   

Like my dear dad used to say: 

The food here is terrible, and on top of it the portions are too small!  😉

Ever Sit On A Cow

Ben and Jerry’s has great ice cream and an earthy, peaceful decor. 

This cow comes with child’s seat is a good use of the store’s “real estate.”

Both country fresh milk from the farm cow and a kid-friendly environment too.  😉

The Sniffer Isn’t Working

Someone really had a premonition posting this sign before Covid!

The sign says simply:

Smell Me!!

The response to this now-a-days would be the person with Covid yelling back:

I can’t smell (or taste) anything!

Now frustrated, the other person replies:

But please, please smell me. 

Second person, tries and tries again:

Sniff, sniff–darn, the sniffer just isn’t working. 

Get out the smelling salts!

Six months later, I still can’t smell a skunk in the same room. 

What type of crazy pandemic is this!  😉

Meat On A Spit

Nothing like loads of meat roasting on the spit over a fire.

The fat drips and the meat is smoking and juicy hot. 

Is it the animal in us or do we just know good food when we see it?

Schwarma or a BBQ, you can taste it!

And it hits the spot right on like nothing else can.  😉

Garden of 5 Senses

Garden of Five Senses in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. 


I hear it and I see it, but I can barely believe it.  


I can touch it, and I can even taste it, but that’s going too far. 


I can smell it, but in a good way. 😉
