late night conversations...

My husband is always amazed at how quirky I get when I am really, really tired. And I was really, really tired last night. We were laying bed reading. I've found a new favorite fiction author (Marian Keyes) and she is hysterical! There was a bit in the book I am reading about 5 sisters discussing what foods they would be. It prompted me to think what kind of foods Eric and I would be.

Eric would be a piece of celery, I think. Those of you who know him know why. He's really thin, kind of concave, extremely pale, and has a mop of hair on top of his 'ole head. Needless to say, he did not appreciate my spin on things.

So, I gave him a go at describing me using a food item. The best he could come up with was a strawberry. Aside from the obvious way a strawberry is round, I share the physisal characteristics of freckles a strawberry has (the seeds) and I am unpredictable like a strawberry. Eric's words were, "You are either really pleased with a strawberry or sorely dissappointed. Kind of like with you. You're either a lot of fun or you're not." Hmmmm... turn about is fair play, I guess.

So, now it's your turn. I want ALL of you, including you lurkers, to let me know what type of food you would be. Happy playing!

Haha! Hilarious! Um I suppose I'd be an avocado... a ripe one. Smooth and bland, but good for you; made better when blended with other flavors... and a hard heart! hahahaha!!!!!!!!!!
Funny.
