So earlier this week I was sitting in a local Nashville cafe/market with wtdaTerry, wtdaTim, and our pal Steve from Ohio. I decided to act like I was focused and working intently on my computer as they carried on with boyish banter. I’ll now let the world in on my secret, I was not working intently on anything at all…except entertaining myself (and now you) by listening to and typing the dialogue of my friends. I’ve copied the best of the best below!
Tim: Mmm, this is better than I remember it. [eating ice cream]
Terry: That’s what she said.
[thinking up ideas for wtdaNate (me) to write about.]
Terry: What To Do About THE WORLD CUP.
Terry: Who watches soccor??
Terry: Any help at all?
Nate: [shakes head]
Terry: He’s writing about crocheting.
Terry: You don’t know me at all Terry [high pitched voice…talking about himself].
[lame music playing in the background]
Me: How’s that ice cream guys
Steve: Super good
Tim: I am very well convinced that most Americans do not eat enough saturated fats.
Steve: I don’t have a whole lot of taste for art, I just think artists should be underpaid. [there just happens to be lots of bad art pieces hanging on the walls around us]
Steve: I think I should try and be an artist.
Tim: Maybe we should all try together.
Tim: Maybe we can make a masterpiece and sell it in a coffee shop for $400.
Tim: Drinks on me!
[back to ice cream]
Terry: It’s not about the sweetness or how delectable it is, it’s about how I can’t stand to have something that’s not finished [talking about his pint of ice cream]
Tim: Scrape the top layer of freezer burn off and it’s fine.
Tim: I’m going to have about 250% of my daily recommended saturated fat intake.
Tim: What about you Steve.
Steve: I just had 120%
Steve: Now why would you use fair trade sugar AND regular sugar.
Tim: We want to help the fair trade people.
Steve: But not too much.
Tim: I really feel like I could make good ice cream. Like this quality but better ingredients. I really feel like I have it in me.
Steve: You wanna go global with this?
Tim: We are starting a raw milk ice cream business in California. Instead of Ben & Jerrys it’s going to be called Tim & Terrys.
Terry: I just don’t wanna be the one with the beard.
That’s all I got kids. At least until the next time I act like I’m doing something but really writing down the conversation of my friends.
