I agree with your initial reaction, Cheryl. Creative's post came across as a bit judgmental rather than appreciative,and her second post confirmed that.

Joey's lunch pictures are cute and fun. I don't think he's trying to impress anyone.

Creative, perhaps you could use some artistic inspiration for your own food fun. This very long thread from a long time ago should keep you busy........

Question

I'm all for the fun thread and said so - obviously overlooked. Oh dear, never mind!

(Perhaps it would take an artist to understand what I was asking).

Thanks for the link, KL! I've been wanting to find it for a long time.

These are amazing and funny.

There is no need to be patronising. I could list all my artistic pursuits but I do not feel you would be receptive to them. Suffice to say I am also creative in the kitchen.

OK, so I did play with food when I was young. Some of my food is my own and some is not. I just like food! If it looks good, it taste's good.

Not overlooked - it wasn't in your initial post. You might consider that there's something off-putting about the way you questioned him rather than concluding that non-artists couldn't POSSIBLY understand you. It's also a little off-putting that you assume the rest of us aren't artistic.

It was just a question of curiosity (the reason for it evidently still escapes you, from the content of this post - which is why I surmised maybe you needed to be an artist to get my point). The one, single question was not loaded or sinister in any shape or form.

I am sorry you misunderstood me so badly.

Thanks!

I am sorry that this thread has taken on an unexpected, somewhat personal attack on myself but I am used to it from certain members here (as are others). It would be nice to keep this thread light/well intended so if mods are reading this, perhaps some deleting of posts would be in order?

Yes I love food too...a bit too much...er, it shows!


Thank you for posting the fun photo!
