Totally Quotable Arlo: apple crisp edition

Beezy’s opened up for dinner last week as part of First Fridays and we decided to check it out. I think everyone enjoyed it, at least up until the dessert course, when Arlo shared the following about the apple crisp.

[To those who have wondered why I don’t post more quotes from Arlo, it’s not that he’s not just as quotable as his sister was at three. It’s that almost everything interesting he has to say right now is about his penis. And, as much as I’d love to share them here, I think it’s probably best that I not give in to the temptation, no matter how hilarious his observations may be. Adolescence is difficult enough, I think, without there being a lot of childhood penis quotes from you on the internet.]

    Don’t take it personally, Bee. He doesn’t know what in the hell he’s talking about. Both flavor and taste were top notch.

    Now I’m wondering if maybe taste and flavor are different.

    At least he didn’t blame the flavor on Ann Arbor.

    Maybe he liked the opportunity to try a taste and discovered that he didn’t like it. Honest boy. A little too honest.

    Taste: the sensation of flavor perceived in the mouth and throat on contact with a substance.

    Flavor: the distinctive taste of a food or drink.

    I’ve tried and tried and I can’t figure this out. It’s like a Buddhist koan.

    Fellow kid translation: Ez thinks by ‘taste’ he means mouth-feel– which technically includes that component while flavor does not. (See Physiology of Taste, Brillat-Savarin– nerd alert!) As good an explanation as any. Warm apple crisp has great mouth feel.

    I was thinking mouth feel as well, Jean.

    Wiser words were never spoken.
