Now I won't make you do anything you don't want, honey, but I promise you this: start saying that word outloud, over and over again, and you can't help but smile.
dum puh lin
You start to take on a sort of cartoony, elfin voice. (amiright??)
It's a joyful, plump little word, almost as joyful as the act of actually eating dumplings.
Today, some coworkers and I escaped the premises and had a Day O' Dumplings over at Bamboo Garden. And man, did we eat dumplings. I mean, we had soup dumplings. We had seafood dumplings. We ate dumplings until we felt like big dumplings.
Stellar, quick service (free dessert from our pleasantly chatty waitress) and then we dumpling-rolled on back to the office to suffer dumpling-induced comas.
