A poetic journey through my mind

Funny funny excerpt

I don’t usually read Freshly Pressed blogs…more of that contrariness that so informs my personality quirks…but I got hooked, and clicked.  Most of the post is funny, but the last two paragraphs surprised a full belly-laugh from me, and I wanted to share.  Mind, I’m a big fan of the Travel Channel‘s food programming,  like Bizarre Foods and No Reservations, but I cook like the second paragraph, so it was especially funny to me…but I think it’ll hit home with most.  ;)

“I, admittedly, enjoy reading up about consumables but food culture sort of misses me.  I think a part of me wants to understand because I really do love a variety of foods but I always seem to fall short once it starts to sound like an erotic novel about rare ingredients.  Then again, I suppose the alternative isn’t much better:

“I cooked some beef today because it was on sale and I hadn’t had any in a while.  I was going to cook a nice chicken curry with rice but then realized that it was going to be just me and I needed to eat that beef because it was starting to stink.  It needed some salt, so I salted it.  I’d say it was pretty okay because I didn’t get all that sick.””

    Ah, you are too funny, KC, to be such a wicked poet.

      Or am I too wicked to be such a funny poet? *raises an eyebrow*

      I love you too, my George. For one, because you were one of the first to truly inspire me, and for another because you have the insight and people skills that I can only dream of, and for third…because your name is the same as Nancy Drew’s sidekick in the book series. *grins, hugs*

        Lord, Girl, you won’t do. I never read a word of Nancy Drew in my entire life. Can you believe it? Arrested development. That’s how it happened. No Nancy Drew. Geeze … you’d a thought somebody woulda’ tol’ me. Seriously, you are some kind of good. You know that, I assume. If you don’t, take my word for it.

    KC,
    Freshly Pressed is so overrated. Who would ever want to be Fp’d anyway, right?
    Pfft. Pfft.

    there’s a formula it seems to what gets pressed. certain number of photo blogs. trips to europe. cute animal pics. attempts at humor.
