I feel the need to share this conversation simply for its utter silliness . . .
I recently had dinner with a friend who I will name Ms. M. Now Ms. M has always been a picky eater and has sincere reservations about trying new foods. Her husband was eating these lettuce wraps and offered her a taste. After taking a bite, she grimaced.
Me: Didn’t like it?
Ms. M: It has cumin. I hate cumin.
Ms. M: Cumin is one of the worst spices . . . it tastes like the worst body order.
Me: Like BO??
Ms. M: Yes, BO.
Me: So, I take it you’ve tasted BO.
Ms. M: Nooo, but it smells like it and if it smells like . . .
Me: so if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, then . . .
Ms. M: it must taste like BO
Me: so just like e=mc2, cumin=BO
Ms. M: You got it!
Mind you, the conversation didn’t last more that 2 minutes and as were going back and forth we were dead serious. My boyfriend and Ms. M’s husband just stared at us and went back to eating without saying a word. In hindsight, it was one of the most absurd conversations I’ve had, but then again, whenever I’m with Ms. M, we always tend towards talking about insane topics.
Talked about any silly topics lately? Let me know! Sue
