Most nights I eat dinner like a proper young woman. I have a table set with the proper silver ware, on a place mat, with a glass of water and condiments. If I am alone, I serve from the stove top. If I have company, I serve from the table. And if I have company, I use candles and dim the overhead light. Sometimes I turn on the stereo and play soft rock or smooth jazz to add to the mood.
But once in a while it is fun to mix it up. I like to eat on the couch in front of the TV. If I’m doing that, I fix a variety of finger foods in stead of a formal plating. The finger foods can be anything from steamed dumplings to hot wings. Tonight I’m thinking it will be a finger food night with a cold beer and a movie from Redbox.
What sounds good to you?
There was an episode on the TV series called, “Harry’s Law,” based on a true life story of a kid who was punched in a college hazing ritual and ended up dying. So the local prosecuting attorneys decided to charge the entire team with murder. The TV show is loosely based on what had happened to a young man in Georgia last year. I don’t recall if they all got charged in real life or what happened to them. But you have to admit it is a good premise for a story.
Once of the defending lawyers on the TV show called out that hazing is part of American culture. He said that we are “raised to haze.” with all the club initiations and secret societies with their rituals that are all a big part of American life. I think he has a good point. Not that it is right, but it surely does have a solid basis in our culture.
Surely you have seen the Dos Equis TV commercial with “The World’s Most Interesting Man?” His real name is Jonathan Goldsmith, and yes, Ladies, he IS single. AND he lives on a sailboat in Southern California. OMFG!
Jonathan was born in New York on September 26, 1938 – he is fucking gorgeous for being 73 years old! He got his good looks from his mother, who was a Conover model and his athletic build is surely doe to the fact hat his father was a high school track coach.
Even though he is way too old for me to ever consider dating, he is a great fantasy for those restless or sleepless nights when a vibrator is a girl’s best friend. Right, ladies?
Finsih this phrase: Pork chops and _________________
For me I would say pork chops and applesauce. That is because of a line from a TV show back in the 70’s called “The Brady Bunch.” They had an episode where the boys were kdding around saying “pork chops and applesauce” in a funny way. And it has stuck with me all these years.
This was something I saw on a TV show as a kid and it sticks with me even today. Amazing.
