I got myself a plate and tasted. "Well, it needs salt."
He got us both salt. He tasted the meal. "Oh. Um. It's kinda…"
"Yeah. That's the word."
"This doesn't go on my 'must buy again' list."
He and I stood in the kitchen taking a couple more tentative bites.
Finally, I said, "If I give you money, will you get us cheeseburgers?"
He nodded. "Yes. Yes, I will."
"Good. I'm getting you money."
