I invited my friend Nick to try a new restaurant with me. This restaurant was the latest thing, and since Nick was a foodie, I thought he would have an interesting take on the meal.
Anita:So, what did you think of the first course?
Nick:I thought it was passable.
Nick:Yes, it was a run-of-the-mill dish you could find in any fine dining restaurant. No gourmet would be bowled over by it.
Anita:Oh, I thought it was pretty good. What about the main course?
Nick:I thought the fish wasn't seasoned properly and it was a touch overcooked.
Anita:I'm sorry to hear that.
Nick:And the wine pairing was all wrong.
Anita:I'm not a wine aficionado, so I guess my palate isn't as sophisticated as yours. I thought the wine was wonderful.
Nick:Hmm, in my opinion, the entire meal was forgettable.
That was the last time I invited Nick to join me for a meal. I thought the meal was delicious, but Nick's comments left a bad taste in my mouth!
