THE POWER OF FOOD by P.S. Joshi
My older sister, Anabelle, had invited her boyfriend of the month, Jason, over to show off her cooking skills. Let’s face it, she isn’t a glamor girl, far from it. Don’t get me wrong, she’s a great girl, but she doesn’t look like a movie star, even when she layers on the makeup.
Of course, Jason doesn’t look like Brad Pitt, either. Nice guy, but lacking personality. I guessed he was overweight for a reason, and Anabelle had discovered that reason.
With the sight of pizza, extra cheese and plenty of pepperoni, his face shone like the grand opening of a mall. Actually, I figured they would make a successful couple as long as she kept his stomach full.
They dated for one month, and she ran in all excited one evening. “He asked me to marry him.” She blurted out.
“Congratulations,” I said. “I guess the food did it.”
