Do you ever rediscover something you previously loved? You knew that you liked it and you never stopped liking it, but you spent some time apart and then forgot how much you really liked it for a while and then you tried it again and it all came rushing back to you how much you really liked it?
That definitely could have been phrased a little better.
What I’m trying to say is that I love edamame, but there was a brief, unintentional intermission in our relationship this past year that ended when my brother in law shared some edamame at a family dinner outing recently. All of a sudden it was oh heyyyy I love edamame! I totally forgot about it for a second there….
And now it’s edamame alldayeveryday and I’m feeling like a whole person again.
