Are you the only foodie you know?


Not About Food 54

Are you the only foodie you know?

i dont really consider myself a true foodie, but i do love to eat. I love good food and i'm the guy who is always looking forward to his next good feast.

I do not know one single person who shares this passion. All of the people i know just eat when there passion for food, they eat the same repetitive typical stuff day in day out. Sometimes i try and get a friend to roll with me to a food spot but i can see the strong disinterest. Sometimes they will come but you can tell its more like they feel obliged since i asked them. For example, a friend once came with me to a top burger spot in NYC, after eating he made this comment "i could have made this at home" with a a tone that implied that he wasted his meal on the burger and fries. Whats funny is that his at home burger is comprised of the following, thawed wonder bread buns from the freezer,generic frozen meat patties,halfway stale veggies, and whatever cheese and sauce is sitting in the fridge door, lol.

At the end of the day i understand, since i'm sure that some of the people i know have passions in which i have no interest. So, for now, i'm the lone eater...time to explore some more of what NYC has to offer. Anyone else consider them self a lone eater?
