Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #122
Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes… If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post.
The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Please link up beneath, and visit other bloggers who are participating in Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts as well.
This week’s quote is from Jilted by Sawyer Bennett – look for my review on Saturday 😉 – and there were definitely a lot of Hungry Hearts quote I could choose from. This one happens shortly after movie-star Eden returns to her hometown to hide out and lick her wounds… only, things aren’t exactly going the way she was hoping for.
My Hungry Hearts quote:
She doles out plates of food, sweet talking up the group of guys in for lunch. She calls them “sweetie” and “honey pie.” Finally, she straightens, pulls her order pad from the picket of her apron and her pencil from behind her ear, and turns to me with a huff. “What do you want?”
Her voice is cold and unwelcoming, and I am completely flummoxed. “Well, hello to you too, Bonnie. It’s good to see you after so long.”
She just stares at me, tapping the end of her pencil against the pad.
“Okay,” I say as I look down to the menu. “I’ll take a burger and fries, and some ice water.” Bonnie jots a few notes and doesn’t say a word as she turns her back on me. I watch her with my mouth hanging wide open, completely stunned by her rudeness. I look around the diner and no one is looking at me anymore. In fact, I’d say I’m being patently ignored.
This is just weird and I know there’s clearly something wrong when it takes almost half an hour for Bonnie to serve my burger, which is cold, and my fries, which are oversalted. I never did get my glass of ice water. I eat a few bites, but the food and the reception are unpalatable. I throw a twenty down on the table and walk out, my head spinning over the way Bonnie treated me.
Thanks for stopping by today, I look forward to reading your Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts quote. Have a terrific Thursday and don’t forget to link up.
