Art Imitating Life - Sort Of

We had a very weird argument the other day. So weird, I asked Brendan what at artistic representation of the argument would've looked like if it existed. He drew it up and showed me. And it made me laugh for many many minutes.

Subject: Trail mix

Kara: ...and aside from two handfuls of your damn devil trail mix, I've eaten really well today.

Brendan: It's not even my trail mix anymore. You're the one mixing it now.

Kara: I do not mix it, I just empty containers when they're almost gone! You're the one always freaking out about ratios like it would be the worst thing ever to get a handful of raisins.

Brendan: It WOULD be the worst thing ever.

Brendan: I'd vomit.

Brendan: Instantly.

Brendan: Everywhere.

Brendan: The cat would scream.

News flash: One can actually purchase packages which contain exclusively raisins. And I think you would find that the cat would be quite ambivalent regarding raisins.

The Future said...

I agree the cat would scream therefore raisins are to be avoided at all costs just to keep the peace.

Blah raisins... how can they be so wrong when grapes are so good?

Gorilla Bananas said...

I don't know what this stuff is, but Brendan is right in substance. If I'm eating peanuts and raisins, it has to be 3 peanuts for every 2 raisins. I don't grab handfuls, I measure precisely using my fingers.

I just buy a bag of m&m's. Saves me having to dig around for them in the trail mix.

Wow, that was awkward said...

There is nothing worse than a screaming pussy.

Another news flash: Why not mix each of your very own so these horrendous aruguments will cease?

Years ago (oh no, a gasbag story), Martha and I nearly resorted to fisticuffs over toothpaste. I squeeze the tube from the end like a normal person, but she squeezes it from wherever she damn well pleases. The solution? Two tubes of toothpaste, and she can be as weird as she pleases.

Love the artwork—the vomitus is especially appealing.

Very well played. I lol'd. Twice.

I love raisins, but I definitely agree that you have to get the nut-raisin ratio just right in both trail mix and muesli. Nothing drives me crazier than having muesli with too many raisins in it: it's like having to chew your way through sweet rubber.

I hate raisins.

Better than a bowl of nuts (hairy nuts that is)
