Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness


Have you ever had something built up so much that by the time you experienced it, it couldn't live up to its reputation? Have you ever done this to yourself?

For months if not years I've raved about Zupa's White Bean Chili to anyone who would listen, as well as lament the fact that they stopped serving it. Woe is me.

Imagine my delight when I heard that they were offering their delectable White Bean Chili again this week only.

I promptly made up an excuse to go down to Provo (my tires need replacing, yeah, that's it) and went down to Zupas.

Before ordering a heaping bowl of scrumptious deliciousness, I asked for a small sample of it first. I breathed the intoxicating aroma, pressed the sample cup to my lips and drank.

My Reaction:

Meh.

Not that it was bad, but when you build something up so much, it's not possible to live up to the fame you puffed it up with (unless it's Tracie, but I digress).

Instead I ordered their savory Enchilada Chili, helped myself to an AWESOME chocolate covered strawberry, and went to complete my diversion, replacing the tires on our car.


Oh, and also, I'm going in for surgery tomorrow.

I've never bothered eating there.

That's one of our fav places to eat and the enchilada chili IS awesome. I like to mix the tomato basil with the mushroom bisque too.

Chicken enchilada chili merits the utmost emphatic endorsement. Get better soon.
