DR Contortrix Goes to Dinner

After a long night of metaphor mixing and syllable stirring in graduated cylinders of grammar, I took brunch with the love of my life. I mean the other one, not word science, the human.


     Zipping down the old gravel road in the Paradox Mobile, complete with a retort fuel reservoir, watch glass headlamp lenses, and Bunsen Burner combustion engine, we bumped our way past the antiquated plantation farms.


After a short discussion, we settled on a local eatery. The menu items include any variation of the following and a bit more: Virginia ham, Idaho potatoes, Brussels sprouts, Italian-style green beans, Polish sausage, Spanish rice, and too many cheeses and wines from around the world to count. Oh, yeah, we went “Dutch” It was a real international affair!


     Having experienced a world of foods, it seems that the ones with the most exotic sounding names are often grown locally. Local food is fine but don’t call it my fried chicken ‘Coq au Têtard’ and charge me three times the money for good old Roberto, the rooster that has woken me up at dawn for the last month. The meal was nice. I can’t complain too much.


     But what school did these people attend? Not one person could understand what I was asking for when I requested a graduated cylinder of dihydrogen monoxide. The nerve!


What made my day, was the companionship of a down-to-earth honey with a world-class heart.

    It is both the universal solvent and we are required to drink it to survive. Kind of ironic huh?
