NaBloPoMo Day 2: Diner's Remorse

I had a busy day today and had just over an hour to post on November 2. I was feeling stuck, so I looked at today's prompt:

If you knew that whatever you ate next would be your last meal, what would you want it to be?

This is a nightmare scenario for me. Every time I sit down in a restaurant, I study the menu obsessively so I can order the best possible thing on it. If I choose something I don't really like, I feel deep regret that I missed out on something better. Even worse, if someone else at my table orders something that looks better than I have, I am jealous.


So the result is that sometimes I panic and order a random assortment of items, and sometimes I get menu paralysis and can't make up my mind.

A last meal situation would take my normal dining-out experience and multiply it by 1,000. I would want to order something with avocado, because I love that. I might want chocolate, because I always do. I would want some really great bread...

I think I would probably order the last best meal I had, a broken yolk sandwich with bacon and avocado from Patachou in Indianapolis. I had them add tomato. I didn't try it when I was there, but if it was my last meal, I'd definitely try the hot French chocolate.

  1. Oh I can so relate to this one! Nothing worse than a case of Plate Envy! :)

  2. I feel the same way when I go to a restaurant. I've started looking up the menus online ahead of time and I find that helps allot!
