    Sometimes it happens! There is pleasure in enjoying a delectable item, but it is followed by an unreasonable discomfort. Soon it is relieved by a nap and a belch! Great Senryu! A 10 (Report) Reply

    That is the nice part, here in India, we are finding out that everyone is at either KFC or at McDonald's, everyone is forgetting what it was like to eat at a small resturant, or the fine street food India is popular for.. Thank you Kelly.

    It was from a local small business called Esmeralda's. She is a hard working Mexican immigrant that makes the most fabulous, authentic food.

    Yes, the sloppy but endearing details of ordinary happiness, long may it prevail! (Report) Reply

    Blood sugar spiked and I had to lie down, but the burps reminded me of my glorious repast for hours.: -)

    Is burrito something you drink? and then pleasure, discomfort, nap, belch? (Report) Reply

    It is a Mexican sandwich. Meat, beans, rice salsa and cheese wrapped in a tortilla. Quite filling
