Who would've suspected shrimp cocktail can reveal personality? 

Meet my husband, left-brained engineer: 


  • Neat
  • Orderly
  • Precise
  • Linear
  • Calculated

Meet me, right-brained writer:


  • Messy
  • Cluttered
  • Unconfined
  • Careless
  • Unbound by convention

He bit the shrimp to the point the shell stopped; I split the tail and got every morsel. 

Unexpectedly, we found ourselves in Atlanta just in time for dinner and decided to try a restaurant we've heard great things about but never before had opportunity to try–Pappadeaux, deliciously exceeding our already-hopeful expectation!  

As we enjoyed quiet conversation in a cozy corner overlooking a lush, verdant view, I looked down and noticed our appetizer plates…and, smiling, said a silent prayer of thanks to have a camera in my phone.

There we were in pinkish, translucent shells, the resemblance uncanny.   "Reading" shrimp…one step up from Tarot cards, I guess.

Go figure…;)
