If you haven’t heard, my wife and I will be celebrating our sixth anniversary on Friday. I’m not sure why you would already know this unless you’re one of those people who actually reads other people’s comments on blogs. Anyways Monkey Boy, stay focussed. We’re only working a four day week and heading a couple hours north of town for a couple nights. We unfortunately weren’t able to swing the Hawaii thing since accomodations were nearly impossible to find in our price range.
Instead we’ll hang in the San Juan islands, a stone’s throw from Canada. It will be a nice relaxing time and our last official trip out of town before things get insane pregnancy-wise. You know the whole third trimester is on the way, 14 more weekends.
Since it’s the week of our anniversary I’m required by law to share stories about my wife. Without further ado, here’s one we joke about often. Let’s call them nerdy food puns. The most common word is falafel. Think of all the words which happen to rhyme with falafel and you have yourself a rather falafel-ly amusing time. The falafel jokes rarely get old, if you ask me.
On Sunday we made falafel patties and ate them for lunch on our back deck under mixed skies. I’m not sure which brand they were though, but that’s not what’s important here. What’s wicked important is how we had leftovers and are both eating them for lunch here on Tuesday. My wife called me during lunch and I made a falafel joke about her hunger. It went some like this:
Mrs. Lessinges: you make me so hot Egan, so hot.
Me: That’s a falafel shame since you’re preggers and all.
Mrs. Lessinges: You don’t know hummus that makes me laugh.
Me: blah blah blah… [pauses for a couple seconds] …did you say what I thought you said?
Mrs. Lessinges: yes
Me: I need to write this …. [insert childish laughter for roughly 30 seconds] …this down Nice use of hummus.
I tell you, food puns rarely pass their expirary date. *Note, some of the above dialogue has been fabricated which explains why this post isn’t categorized as "Mrs. Lessinges Approved". I’m willing to make up a story like this to protect the innocent. As I’m rereading this, it’s clearly something you had to overhear, it’s pita that way.
