Favorite Flavor

She said, “It’s too quiet. We need some music in here.”

And the race commenced.

His fleet fingers

brought the sounds of his favorite pandora playlist

seconds before

my far less fleet fingers

ushered in the intro to “What I Like About You”

So it is.

His favored country flavor won the moment

and a bunch of deep-fried country-flavored moments thereafter

I’m still humming The Romantics in my head
