Specifically a bright red one? Well, Monique supported her act by saying “If that’s the last Jordan’s gonna see of me before you two lyin’ devils send him away, he’s gonna remember me lookin’ good!” This represents Monique’s desperation of getting into Jordan’s eyes, to grab his attention. When Jordan was back from jail after 6 whole years, Monique had gotten steak and apple pie for Jordan, and she “was not known for her cooking.” This is important because it shows that she’s being caring to Jordan by actually buying those food items when she hasn’t bothered to pay the rent many times, which has caused them to move houses a couple of times.

She describes the example of one triad that was out to eat at a diner, and while wife Cassie was in the bathroom, her husband Josh gave the tomatoes from his burger to their date, Anne. This made Cassie upset because she always eats the tomatoes that Josh discards from his burger. Although she wanted to be angry and cause a scene, she realized that "they 're just tomatoes," (Khazan, 2014). Cassie 's ability to self-regulate her emotions without adding conflict to the relationship occurs in many of the other polyamorous relationships surveyed. Most of us would define this emotion as jealousy, but an interesting point brought up in the article suggests that we only express jealousy when we are feeling a loss (Khazan, 2014).

The Buffet for Meat Lovers Whenever you want to have an expensive dinner or a buffet of meats, the first thing that should come to your head is a Texas de Brazil’s.

I also was able to go to the salad bar and pick out as many entrée’s as I wanted.
