What did we say before we said 'its like watching a train wreck'? This 'watching a train wreck' phrase is so over used now but I am struggling to remember or even think of what we said before this. Its the same as 'thinking outside the box' what did we do before we 'thought outside of the box'? Pablo Picasso, obviously, was thinking outside the box when he was doing cubisim and what was 'thinking outside the box' called back then, because he was thinking inside the box while thinking outside the box so his box thinking went full circle, and was watching any of his antics like watching a train wreck?
This chicken soup is a train wreck, it has potatoes, yucca, chicken and ginger and you just cant take your eyes off of it let alone leave it alone. You want to watch and, in this case, taste every last drop of it.
I totally was thinking outside of the box when I decided to toss in some ginger. Tossing in the ginger, alone, is what made this soup what it is. The ginger took what would have been a simple chicken soup with potato up to new heights, it made it taste exotic, it turned it into the train wreck that it is.
