Direct quote from “the experts” on Married at First Sight this week, a couple of the married contestants share their meal.
“That’s an intimate thing to do, sharing food.”
Is it though?
Pretty sure I’ve shared a yiros with my Uber driver.
And a box of Jatz with my dog.
I don’t know about it being intimate, so much as relevant when the dog basically stares me down until I surrender and the Uber driver drops he’s worked 11 hours straight without so much as a muesli bar.
I mean heck, I’d open a bag of MnM’s at work and offer them around the whole office. So what now experts? Am I being intimate with my entire team?
I’m only human and I have compassion.
I think that’s what sharing food is. Being human. Not intimate.
I mean, maybe sharing wine is different. Because I sure as hell wouldn’t share mine unless I loved that person.
But I’m pretty sure this couple was sharing something edible. I can’t remember what… Maybe because I didn’t share my wine.
