Olive Garden's Glowing Review«»
Alright, let's end on a good note. This is an old-style meme, the kind of meme that predates the masturbatory "I'm going to describe the joke that the picture already made!" nonsense that negates any kind of insight or original thought. This is just a cool, quirky story that'll put you in a good mood, make you think, and make you want to share (God, I sound old right now): This is the glowing review of Olive Garden.Marilyn Hagerty is a 85-year-old newspaper writer who, last March, wrote a charmingly positive review of a new Olive Garden opening in Grand Forks, North Dakota. She describes the Chicken Alfredo as "warm and comforting on a cold day." She promises to try to raspberry lemonade in the summer, when it will be more fitting with the season. She describes the bread sticks as "long and warm," and if you think of taking that in a dirty direction I will cut you.Do you know why I love this? I know why everyone else loves it, obviously: they love it because it reminds us not to be so cynical and jaded, like I have been while writing this list. It reminds us to slow down and enjoy things without worrying about what might be better out there. It reminds us of being young, naive, and actually excited to go to an objectively s**tty chain-restaurant like Olive Garden.But the reason I love this is because she's doing exactly what I hope to be doing when I'm 85 years old: cheering people up and not giving a f*ck.l< << PREV 50 of 50 NEXT >>
