Mejack: I am with you on the pilaf.
Yours Truly: Awesome
Mejack: "Au jus" freaks me out.
YT: Ew, that's nasty.
Mejack: I know. When I worked in a restaurant I used to say AW CHEW… Chefs don't like that.
YT: I bet it goes well with, ew, brisket.
Mejack: I am also equally appalled by flank steak
YT: Ew, yes!
Mejack: Skirt steak
YT: Ew, yes!
YT: Sweetbreads! Ew ew ew ew!
Mejack: Sweetbread is a nice way of saying COW PANCREAS.
YT: I don't care for the word morsels.
Mejack: EW. That one is just BAD.
Mejack: You know what I hate, and this is stupid, but any kind of cut of meat that is a "chop." I know that is strange but I hate it.
Mejack: Chops. EW
YT: Oh I know! I don't like when I pass a diner and see the sign: "Steaks and Chops."
Mejack: Like pork chop, fine. Veal chop, even. But just chop? NO.
YT: Oh man. I just threw up in my mouth a little.
Mejack: My friend who lives in Colorado emailed me this morning and told me how cold it is out there and how she and her boyfriend and his dog get into their bed and have SNUGGLE BUGGLE TIME.
Mejack: I know. I wrote back and told her if she ever did that again I will FedEx her a box of vomit.
YT: Like, when I'm in a relationship, schmoopie things are said from time to time... but when we're alone. I would NEVER EVER EVER tell anyone what I've said to people or what they've said in return.
YT: Oh, except that one time I told Jess some chick called me her "lover." That was troublesome to me and I had to share.
Mejack: I hate lover. Hate hate hate
YT: Ew and in the same sentence she also said "making love."
YT: Dude, I had sex with her on the 2nd date. We weren't making shit.
Mejack: If she worked in "caress," I would have kicked her teeth out.
YT: After I got that email I thought to myself, "Oh dear god, what have I gotten myself into?!?!"
Mejack: Ew, she said it in AN EMAIL?????
Mejack: That's even worse.
YT: Well, she, um, wrote to thank me for, uh, you know, doing her and stuff.
Mejack: DEAR LOVER: I LOVED MAKING LOVE WITH YOU, LOVER. LET'S HAVE LOVEMAKING LATER, LOVER.
YT: I'm blushing.
YT: I told Jess what she wrote only because it bugged me and I didn't know if I was just being shallow and ridiculous. Jess said in reply, "Um, if things work out with this chick and I ever meet her, I'm going to have to pretend you never told me this."
Mejack: Understandable. Did I tell you about the New Light Syndrome?
Mejack: Anything can make it happen. In fact, it originated with a Velcro wallet.
YT: That is brilliant.
Mejack: I went out with one guy who during the regular get-to-know-you chit-chat thought it might be a good time to go ahead and inform me that he was into fisting.
Mejack: That is a new light but it's an obvious one. But it can be anything and you shouldn't question it if someone bums you out that quickly.
YT: That's profound. Thank you.
