wild rice is code for...

M: grocery store
M: I think a gay guy was hitting on me
M: in the dried spuds section

J: damn
J: did you flirt back
M: I was confused

M: "why is he buying dried spuds..."
M: I was more focused on the difference between scalloped and au gratin

J: haha
M: and I asked what he was looking for and he said wild rice
M:I said it was down there (points to right)

J: is "wild rice" a code
M: not when it's one section over I guess
M: it's hard to meet someone over dried spuds I'm thinking

J: yes
M: the odds are against meaningful dialogue
M: I was trying to read the boxes

J: what was the difference?
M: I couldn't get past all the mumbo

J: thats a funny mental image

"au gratin" is French for "with cheese." Scalloped potatoes do not have cheese. If they do, they are misnamed and should be called Au Gratin. You can mix them, no problem

J: mystery solved
M: this is funny- I bought "Cheesy Scalloped"
M: so- more mystery
M: So, this guy goes- "there sure are a lot of potato varieties"

J: haha
J: that is funny
M: especially when you need rice

M: I didn't mention- I was wearing jean on jeans
M: jean jacket with jean pants
M: that was just inviting it

J: inviting trouble yes
M: Nick disapproves
M: But, see proof here- http://justjared.buzznet.com/2010/10/05/ryan-gosling-carey-mulligan-go-for-a-rainy-drive/
M: it's not insane
M: Not Tom Selleck territory.
M: 1-- Dork Dad --6--Tom Selleck --7-- Sort of gay --9 -- Steve McQueen --10
M: That's the jean on jean scale

apple salad

My mom's apple salad. Just mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, sugar, lemon, nuts and milk. I have no idea why anyone would want to crap this out with grapes and celery. In this one above I made the mayonnaise myself so, extra tart and lemony.
