Oblique things

Being laidback, easygoing types, the spouse and I often end up having long and tedious conversations about where to go eat, along the lines of: “Are you hungry?” “I guess so.” “Let’s go out.” “OK.” “Any ideas?” “Umm… don’t mind, really.” “What kind of food do you feel like?” “I don’t really have any strong preference.” I used to have similar problems with Richard in Cambridge, and came up with an idea I called Oblique Restaurants.
