Message: How do I know if I am actually in love or if I am just really horny?

Dear Sam,

I wish I could give you a definitive answer but, I absolutely cannot. What I CAN do is describe to you the feelings I get when in love, or otherwise. Hopefully you’ll be able to discern a little more easily?

Theresa, in love: I want to be with that person all of the time. I want to do everything with them. I could easily just spend time laying on the couch, talking, and staring at them (obviously they’d be looking back at me. I try not to be a creep). When I kiss them I get a feeling in my stomach, and it is NOT a horny feeling (though that’s there too), but a feeling of contentment, like everything is exactly how it should be, and this is the person I’m meant to be kissing. I want to know everything about them. How their brain works, what makes them sad, what makes them angry, what they dream about. I accept all parts of them, flaws and weaknesses included. I can picture my life with them; vacations, a home, good times, bad times. I want to introduce them to my friends. I think about them daily. Etc. etc. etc.

Theresa, not in love: Those other feelings are really just a means to an end, aren’t they? It’s fun and exciting, but at the end of the day, do you want to get to know this person, inside and out? (Get your mind out of the gutter, Sam, you know what I mean!) I’m not going to give too much detail here, because there ARE some things I don’t need to share with the internet. But suffice to say, I am able to tell the difference between the feelings in my stomach in both situations. I hope you can too! -T

The Gaslight Anthem- Desire: Okay this song doesn’t answer your question. But it does kinda describe some of the feels I mentioned above. And it’s also PERFECT for the summer. I’ve been going through some rough times recently, and this band really helps me get through the worst of it. Check out this song and see if you can relate. It makes me feel all sorts of good things when I hear it, but not really the “in love” sort of good things, if you catch my drift. Let me know how it works out for you, my fingers are crossed for “in love!”

Message: What is your standard taco bell order? what are your reasons behind said taco bell order?

Hi Mom!

Just kidding, I know my mom isn’t capable of getting onto the internet and finding this site. ANYWAY, I am so glad you asked that question! While I don’t eat most meat, and I try to keep my fast food intake to a minimum, I have a not-so-secret Taco Bell addiction. In fact, my boyfriend recently caught me scooping liquid nacho cheese from TB into my mouth via finger. And he’s still with me, bless his heart!

So, my regular order(s)? Basically everything I get at Taco Bell is an attempt to recreate my favorite menu item ever, which is no longer available, the tostada. No meat, just beans, cheese, lettuce, red sauce, on a flat crunchy shell. Perfection. The cheese to lettuce to bean ratio was key. And of course, a side of nachos & cheese so I can get my liquid chemical fill. 2 tostadas with nachos and cheese is my favorite.

Alas, the tostada is no longer offered. Which angers me to the same extent the discontinuation of the stuffed pitas at Wendy’s in the early 200’s does. I guess chalupas and gorditas and crunchwraps became too popular; no one wants a tostada anymore. Or maybe they wanted to eliminate the boxes and move to only wrapping their food. That makes sense. So, what do I get now?

My regular is 2 soft tacos, beans instead of meat, hot sauce. A side of nachos and cheese allows me to dip the tacos into the cheese, because the chip to cheese ratio is totally off.

I also sometimes go for nachos bell grande, no meat, add lettuce, extra nacho cheese. Yes, I am a disgusting human being. If I didn’t inherit my father’s metabolism, I would be a very different person. But yay genetics! -T

P.S. Check out the new Cinnabon Delights at T-Bell. Soft cinnamon coated dough, filled with warm frosting. I get that with EVERY order now because they are heaven in my mouth.

REWIND to this...

Sublime- 40 oz to Freedom: Taco Bell, late summer nights, drunk friends, and Sublime. These things all go together. I have so many memories of beach days that turned into long nights full of malt liquor that inevitably ended in the Te Amo parking lot in Merrick, inhaling Taco Bell we waited 15 minutes to get on the never-ending drive-thru line (yes, Long Island is kind of a nightmare). And no band, album, or song, is more synonymous than Sublime- 40 Oz to Freedom.
