Soup (Carolyn: see also, Peeves, Pet)
I am a soup lover, and I think my favorite right now might be cold cucumber, but I love almost all soup as long as there’s little or no pepper in it. And when I say little I basically mean none. So to be clear, there should be no pepper or no pepper in it. Sometimes I become certain that there is a vast soup conspiracy going on among restauranteurs where they meet once a month and remind themselves to put too much pepper in the soup, hey, I made a wicked cream of mushroom this month, awesome, you know what would make that better? Pepper. Which is not true. It makes it more peppery and not tasting like the thing it is supposed to taste like, only pepper.
