All seriousness aside, though, I do have to share this recent coversation.
We recently ate out at a restaurant with another couple from the church and they offered Steve something new to try - they said it was acorn (but it was like jello acorn or something square and jiggly and cold). Anyway he politely tried it. Later I was curious and asked him about it.
Me: "Hey what was that acorn thing like? Did you like it?"
Steve: "It was okay. I don't really like acorns. They kinda reminded me of dirt."
Me: "Have you had acrons before? And why do they remind you of dirt?"
Steve (nonchalantly, as if it is totally normal): "I used to eat acorns all the time. They were under the trees and always had dirt on them because they were sitting on the ground. I figured the squirrels ate them so I would try them too. It's not like I was going to go inside and wash them so they always had some dirt on them."
Learning something new every day. Wow.
