why i cohabitate

November 14th, 2007 · 6 Comments


sometimes on the weekend caryand imight hit the grocery storeandhe’ll faithfully stand bywhile i agonize over package labels and ingredients. one particular saturday we wereat our neighborhoodsupermarket and as i was pouting in the pasta aisle,lamenting the very sad fact that there was no orecchiette to be had,he reached for the ‘alphabets’ and said”hey, i want these so i can spell out ‘i wanna kiss my girlfriend'” (which actually is close to, but not quitewhat he said – but for our purposes will do nicely). naturally, i found that rather endearing and grabbed the bag and threw it into our cart.

so on a night whenmy guyis working late, i’m fighting a cold and it poured down rain for most of the day this was my ambitious kitchen project:


obviously ‘world finer foods‘ who manufacture davinci pastais struggling with the precarious balancing act of the letter I and hasn’t quite ironed out the kinks in this particular mold. i felt like a contestant on ‘the wheel of fortune’ desperately needing to buy a vowel. or perhaps it’s a morefreudian explanation, removing the “I” from the conscious mind, disabling the ego which would in turn enable me to even buy davinci pasta as opposed toits shelf-matebarillapasta, a far superior product- but alas not a maker of the ‘alphabets’.

and now,i just keep looking atthe innocence of the simple statement’i wanna kiss my girlfriend’thinking it reads more like the question “u wanna kuss my gurlfruend?”

i suppose if i’dstuck to the actual words that cary had uttered that day perhaps a tad too loud amidst the aisles of publix, this whole linguistic exercise would have taken a much different path.

    How cute! Mabye you should cook those alphabet pasta up and spell something back to him. Make sure it’s against all FCC regulations. 🙂 And hey, those alphabets are an official excuse to make a really good, ooey gooey macaroni and cheese, are they not? That’s how my brain works, doesn’t yours? haha…

    Hello, I tried calling you several times today, and I’m not getting through for some reason. If your website does not have many Facebook Likes, why would someone visit your Facebook Fanpage? People Like you when other people like you. The more people that LIKE your website and fanpage on Facebook, the more credibility you will have with new visitors. It works the same for Twitter, Instagram and Youtube. When people visit your page and see that you have a lot of followers, they now want to follow you too. They too want to know what all the hype is and why all those people are following you. Get some free likes, followers, and views just for trying this service I found: http://yxbp.com/87dm
