On Thursdays, I Only Eat Foods That Start with the Letter E

Hello internet! I missed you that one day without access for no apparent reason!

Here's a phone conversation I had with The-Guy last week:
Me: I got chicken sausage for dinner. You know? Those long kind?
Him: Yeah?
Me: You know, the long kind that look like...
(Pause as I attempt to find a way to distinguish between sausage varieties without referring to male anatomy)
Me: that look like...
(pause)
Me: that look like cucumbers?
Him: I just took you off speaker phone.
I've been deemed unfit for broadcast amongst his coworkers. Again.

I wasn't going to say it looks like a penis though. Because we were just talking about spring rolls the other day. And who wants to be known as a gal with only one simile to her name? Or was that metaphor? I can't remember my exact words actually.

In any case, in addition to eating a bunch of different foods that look like male body parts, we also got (pre)wedding pictures taken. I can't remember exactly why Jeff (friend/wedding photographer) said it would be good to get some pictures beforehand, but it was fun.
I mean it was like, actual fun and not that kind of "fun" that I'm supposed to be having trying to deciding what kind of tacos we'll be serving. Except for trying to find a decoy wedding dress to get the pictures taken in. That part was a little stressful.

I'm not wearing the decoy wedding dress in these pictures though. These are some of the casual pictures.

And also, I don't only eat foods that start with the letter E on Thursday. I just asked The-Guy what he thought was a nice wholesome letter of the alphabet. That way I figured I could balance out the whole body parts thing.

Beth said...

Honey's mom said she ONLY WANTS ONE THING, which was a family photo of us. So we had a friend of ours, who's a photographer, come to the house and take photos, and we all got dressed up, and I wouldn't admit it to anyone, because DOWN WITH THE BOURGEOISIE, but it was really kind of fun.

Reel Girl said...

Love that he had to take you off speaker phone!

Christine said...

Spring rolls look like the kind of penises that would make a woman very, very sad.

Ring kielbasa? That stuff just makes me blush.

Arizaphale said...

Enchiladas, eggplant, eels(pickled), elderberries, epsom salts, Ezi-mac....I dunno....quite a varied palette really....
Nice pics btw!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Funny Disa! And no kidding on that clock thing. Can't wait until this time one week from now! All done!

Tracy and Reel Girl - Yeah, I don't know, every now and then he has to take me off speakerphone.

Beth - Yeah, he wasn't really thinking variety, just wholesomeness. :-)

Thanks Hilde!

Funny People! And also kind of funny because I don't really think "bourgeoisie" when I think of family portraits.

Christine - Why sad? Do you mean those fried kind of icky spring rolls? I was talking about the white, see through kind. :-) I had to look up ring kielbasa. They actually look a lot like chicken sausage...

Good thinking Arizaphale! Just the enchiladas alone would be good for me for Thursdays!

Liz said...

Cucumbers are perfectly fine conversation for mixed company. LOL
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, lovely pre-wedding photos!

TMTCO said...

Your pictures are beautiful! I think that he should have left you on speakerphone! However, I have *that* type of sense of humor, so take my suggestion with a grain of salt! :)

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Liz - Thank you! And he took me off speaker phone because he didn't really think "cucumber" was the word I was about to come up with. ;-)

Thanks TMTCO! And yeah me too I guess...that's why I get taken off speakerphone every now and again. :-)

Heidi said...

Love that last picture. And I hate being on speaker phone. I might have to try your way of getting my dh to pick up the phone. ;OP

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Oh! Heidi! If you want to be taken off speakerphone, then you've come to the right place for ideas! For example, describing what you are or aren't wearing works really well. Spontaneous interjections into the conversation along the lines of BAD CAT!!!! DON'T EAT JESUS!!! also work very nicely.

Jeff said...

I had a BLAST taking those pics, Jill. FYI, if anyone wants to see the rest, they can see them here:

DJ Kirkby said...

*snerk* you are hilarious!!!!!!!! Nice photos, very impressed and yes it was a good idea.

DJ Kirkby said...

p.s. foods that start with E...eggs, eggplant, eel, easter eggs (!!), enchiladas, eclairs, edamame beans...my work here is done. xo

Christine said...

I just mean they are tiny. Not like an egg roll. And not in the same league as ring kielbasa at ALL.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Jeff - It was fun, right?

Thanks DJ Kirkby!

Christine - Yeah, I think those ring kielbasa things might be in a league all their own. :-)
