If you like it, I probably don’t

I have come to the conclusion that I manage to fall in the low percentile of people when being surveyed.  For example, I love this restaurant called ‘The Ovo’.  They make this awesome appetizer with rolls, some sort of yummy cheese sauce and various types of chopped olives.  They also make pasta pillows; large pasta squares filled with various choices of cheeses and meats covered in different sauces that just melt it your mouth.  Being partial to the olives and also having a slimmer wallet kept me more in the appetizer range but oh did I love it.  When I was pregnant, my husband drove me over 20 miles to get that appetizer.

They closed.  Why else would they close other than not enough business?  Oh, I suppose there could be something else but it’s the most likely reason.  They closed along with The Ritz, Don Pablos and Hops.  I found out later that there is a Don Pablos but it’s a good 45-60 min. drive which kind of takes away from ever getting to eat there.  I just found out a day or so ago that Hops, the one that is about 20-30 min. away has reopened which was great.  I am hoping they haven’t changed their recipes etc.

Anyway, the whole point of that was me wondering WHY do the places I like close?  It doesn’t stop with restaurants either.  Survey me about a band name, a color for the office or a furniture style…I’ll be one of the ones that doesn’t like what everyone else likes. 

Gargoyles.  I love gargoyles.  Now I know that there are a lot of people out there who also love gargoyles but we are definitely on the lower percentile otherwise you would see a lot more of them around.  When it comes to gargoyles, I am pretty specific about the look I like.  I don’t like the ones that look deranged or non-gargoyle like (like they have a ghost head or some other off feature).  I like the more pleasant ones that actually look like a gargoyle as compared to mixed with other beasts BUT if I were to imagine him protecting a home or person – he could look as vicious as he likes.  But then again, I have seen gargoyles that are dragon like that I really like etc. so I guess I’m not that picky.
