Al Dente


Shelly is sharp. Sharpest one among them. Okay, she is an acquired taste, but if you like your dish to the tooth, memorable, it doesn't get better than a plate full of Shelly.

  2. I'd never really considering thinking about people as being "al dente," but it does make perfect sense. Some our to our taste and others are not. Some are undercooked and some are overcooked, and some are perfectly "to the tooth."

  3. I love your description of Shelly. I have met a few people that are acquired tastes, but once I've warmed to them, they are quite enjoyable :)

  6. Sensual with a soupçon of humour. For all of Shelly's sharp angles, I think you've rounded this out very nicely indeed ;))

  16. 'she is an acquired taste' - this is my favourite line. Unusual people are always more interesting aren't they?

  20. I am quite certain that you didn't mean for this to happen but, after reading your post and viewing many of the comments, I can't believe that no one has mentioned Hannibal Lecter! I mean, really, Shelley is an acquired taste, a plate full of Shelley is delicious, etc. When I read all of these comments about people and eating, I am drawn back to one of the many scenery-chewing scenes in Silence of the Lambs, when Sir Anthony Hopkins describes for Jody Foster, what happened to the census taker who asked too many questions. http://youtu.be/G4qblq0uahw
    Thanks, as always, for creating the good work that you do. :)

    1. Tom, I hadn't thought of Hannibal, but you're right, it does fit.

  23. This is a delightful description! What a fresh, unusual--and tasty!--way of summing someone up. Brilliant, LaTonya!
