what it's like to date me

Just wanted to give you a little glimpse into the life of 'I have the pleasure of dating Brooke.' The other day I sent Brad an email asking him to make me this white chicken chili. The email went something along the lines of this:
Dear Brad, 
Please make this or I will cut you in your sleep. 
Love you. 

You know, just your standard love email letter.

Brad proceeds to go to the store the next day to buy ingredients for what I thought was this mouth watering chicken chili and I am out of my mind excited for it. We're talking salsa verde, white beans, chicken goodness here.



I might have even talked this chili up to multiple people throughout the day. I just couldn't contain my excitement. Side Note: I get easily and really emotionally tied to the prospect of good food. Sorry, not sorry. 


Fast forward to that afternoon when I ask him how the chili is going... and he informs me that he decided to make a turkey chili instead of THE WHITE CHICKEN CHILI! Hold the phone. 

Are you kidding me?! 


I might have been just a smidgen disappointed...To the point I told him he might want to sleep with one eye open and then blasted him on multiple forms of social media, including but not limited to, Twitter and Snap Chat. He said I was slandering his good name and gave me multiple excuses as to why he went with the other chili...but ultimately, I was sad and I think this situation deserved shaming.

And before you tell me to stop being irrational, they are both chili, what's the big deal? ... The big deal is they are completely different forms of chili and I had my heart set on the white chicken chili and the highlight of my day was gone forever. First World Problems.


Never mind the fact that the turkey chili he made was delicious, that is besides the point.


The point is... I still want the damn white chicken chili. He better make it for me next week.....OR ELSE.

I'm confused.. I see nothing wrong with your reaction. It's white chicken chili.. There is no substitute. Get it together, Brad.

"I get easily and really emotionally tied to the prospect of good food."

ME TOO, THOUGH.

I may or may not spend all day dreaming about dinner. OKAY, I DO.

Irrationality for the win!

How dare he!!! Now, hopefully, he has learned his lesson. Public shaming is no joke!!!

Brad Snook said...

I believe the exact wording of the email was:

"Make me this or I will cut your dick off in your sleep."

Simmer down Lorena Bobbit.

Fallon Thompson said...

You. Are. Hilarious. I'm just as crazy. Maybe crazier. If that's even possible.

^^^^ hahahah to Brad above me here!


I get it that you had your mind and your tastes set on something you didn't get. That's a total disappointment.

There's truly nothing worse than unmet food expectations. also, I'm not really much of a chef but if you could please send that recipe over so the boo can get to work on it in the kitchen, that would be amazing.

Hopefully he's made up for it by now :)

Okay I would love some white chicken chili now.... as in I might have to make it this weekend!! But really, they are two different chilis and therefore two different things. I would have been real sad too!!!

That sh*t seems simple enough to get right. Men. Always meddling in things that would've been perfect otherwise.

Becky said...

That would be like looking forward to a lovely chicken fajita and then discovering - nope - beef tacos instead. Both so delicious but damn, fajitas.

Lauren said...

People get emotionally and irrationally attached to things that aren't food? Does not compute.
