Flash Fiction #177



Young Billy and his best buddy Bob, loved all cheese.  One Saturday, they ate at East Side Mario’s.  They ordered different pastas, so Bobby’s came out first.  The waitress assured Bill that his would arrive soon, but first, would Bob like some parmesan grated on his??

She ground, and ground – and GROUND.  “Say when.”  Bob eventually raised a hand.

Bill said, “I love cheese even more than him.  You’ll need a new block.”

“Don’t challenge me.  I just went to the Gym.”

By the time she grated the new block, you could almost see the fettuccini on his plate.

    A cheese lover’s delight.

      We’ve got English cheddar, Dutch edam, Italian parmesan and mozzarella, Greek feta, and Mexican Monterey Jack in the refrigerator. Does India have a “national” type of cheese? 😕


      • Abhijit Ray says:

        We have Paneer. It is not same as western cheese. Paneer is used to make curry. European varieties are also present. But they are not as popular.

        That’s right! I should have remembered. I’ve never tried any. There’s a new Middle-Eastern Market nearby, where the wife has bought Kashmiri chilli. I must remember to look, or ask. 🙂


      • Abhijit Ray says:

        Try cottage cheese. That is closer to Indian variety.

    Cute take on the photo.. Got any cracked peppercorn??


  5. Russell says:

    Now that’s a lot of cheese!

    We used to have an East Side Mario’s within walking distance, then it changed a Del Frisco’s and now it’s one of a bazillion Egg joints… sigh… I miss the original – more for the family memories than the food which was ok.

    I love parmesan too 🙂


    • Archon's Den says:

      I seem to have awakened quite a few appetites. Thanx for stopping ’round. It’s a good thing you had that snack before you arrived. Everything here was already eaten. 😛


  8. Soo.. you saw cheese?? Interesting. Love cheese also. Now I’m hungry for pasta and cheese! LOL! 😉


    • Archon's Den says:

      Are you a psychologist? Many of them find what I see…. Interesting. Rorschach has just thrown up his hands. I wouldn’t even have thought of cheese if I hadn’t just heard this story recounted by my Grandson. Too often, all I get is enough vacuum to build a Thermos. 😉
