My boyfriend David says that I have odd tastes in food. He often thinks that flavor combinations I think sound good, sound awful. He says that my tastes in food are "bougie". According to Urban Dictionary, bougie means "anything that is perceived as "upscale" from a blue collar point of view. 'Bougie' (pronounced boo'-she) is a hacked truncation of the word Bourgeoisie, which refers to the middle-class in Europe, but refers to a more affluent class level in the United States."
So I have to ask, does the combination of Mountain Dew and Doritos...in a cake....sound bougie to you?
