Dinner Conversation

The tone of the conversation is not atypical for our home. As always, names have been changed to protect the innocent.

Me: I had lunch at Christopher Robin's house today. Would you like to know what she fixed me? (It really isn't a yes/no question, so I just continue talking.) It was delicious. She made paninis on calipso bread with asiago cheese, roast turkey, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and red peppers.

Toa of Boy: Ewww!

The Jedi: Ba-BUM, Ba-BUM, Ba-BUM.

Toa of Boy: It sounded good until you said artichoke hearts. That's just gross.

Me: You've never even tried artichoke hearts. They are delicious.

The Jedi: Ba-BUM, Ba-BUM, Ba-BUM

Toa of Boy: I didn't even know fish had hearts.

The Jedi: Ba-BUM...The artichoke heart is coming down your street.!...Ba-BUM....

Sweetling: You're thinking of anchovies.

Me: Artichokes are a vegetable.

The Jedi: Ba-BUM...The artichoke heart is outside your door!....Ba-BUM, Ba-BUM...

Me: And yes, fish have hearts.

Toa of Boy: Oh. Maybe that's not so bad then. I thought it would be slimey.

The Jedi: The artichoke heart is coming to eat you up!...Ba-BUM, Ba-BUM
