Having spent the entire weekend with sick kids and them being able to eat nothing but soup... that's pretty much all that's on my mind.
I grabbed soup and sandwiches at a local sandwich shop for lunch on Saturday. I got broccoli and cheese while my daughter ate chicken noodle. And the soup was pretty good, but I started to realize... I HATE SOUP!
Okay, maybe hate is a harsh word. I dislike soup. Homemade soup is pretty decent. I can at least tolerate it most of the time, but canned soup is barf-on-me-grosstastic! I really only eat Campbell's Chicken Noodle when I'm sick, and that's it.
However, I really hate trying to "JUST" eat soup. It doesn't work. There is no way it can possibly fill me up! I need bread with it and lots of it! Bring on the carbs and empty calories, I don't care! I love that stuff!
The funny thing is that some will look at this as a flaw, while others will completely agree with me. And that's what makes us unique individuals! We all have our quirks, flaws and strengths.
And, as a writer, I particularly love finding a character with an unusual quirk or character trait. Those are some of favorite to read... and to write!
How about you?
Life is a reflection of your thoughts.Apparently, my life will reflect negatively on soup. Hopefully better on other things though!
