Some people talk about the addictiveness of sugary drinks, or spicy Cheetos, but he couldn’t get enough olives. Delightfully salty, the olive was what he turned to after a hard day. He ate them one by one, chewing slowly and savoring the way it made his taste buds fire. The experience went beyond taste; it was like having his brain massaged.
They caused a slight puckering of his lips and curling in his tongue, like a lemon, but better. It was a sensation that nothing else replicated exactly, or made pleasurably. He found olives addictive, but society did not care.
