IMGP3614bYesterday, BFF and I watched Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa, prepare lunch for her Architects:

* California Iced Tea
* Lobster Paella
* Avocado & Grapefruit Salad
* Shortbread Cookie Hammers

Neither of us liked the look of the salad.

“Wow!  That Avocado looks . . . ”

“Slimy.”

“Slimy!  Yes!  That’s the word I had in mind.”  I continued, “Of course, lots of people like Avocado.  Food preferences are so personal.  It’s funny that . . . ”

I paused to watch Ina dropping Lobster chunks and frozen peas into the Paella.

Mickey-OKBFF picked up the thread of my thought, “It’s funny that you and I dislike the same foods ~ food that other people adore ~ mushrooms, eggs, avocados, eggplant, sushi, calamari.”

“That’s exactly what I was going to say!”

I love it when that happens.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Have you ever read someone’s mind?  Saying exactly what they were going to say, before they said it?  Picking up where they left off?

Even when they could have headed in any number of different directions?

Don’t you love it when that happens?
