Hum 'n' Shred


  1. Two co-workers today proclaimed their categorical hatred of hummus, which, yes, sounds impossible. But I suppose that no single foodstuff can be universally adored, plus their hatred means more hummus for the hummus-loving among us—a policy view I can only too happily get behind.

    However, their reason for not liking hummus—texture resembling maggots—well that's just batshit crazy.

  2. This huge paper-shredder truck came to work today. It was sort of like a dump truck, except with a giant, menacing-looking shredder on it. So rad.

    I confess that I get irrationally excited about paper shredding, and I absolutely love using the small office shredder we have at work. Such a big shredder? Would have been ecstasy.

  3. Plus: Tonight at band practice, I pointed out to a visiting friend that his fly was down. Not thirty seconds later, my own XYZ-ness was pointed out to me. Whoops!

People say weird shit about food they don't like. I don't think they actually believe hummus has the texture of maggots; that would be, as you say, crazy. Just like I didn't actually, as a lad, think eggplant tasted "like shit" even though I said that. It's just a game of finding insulting-sounding things to say about the food you don't like. (I like eggplant nowadays.)

Actually, they were both insistent in their description of it as maggots. old, slimy maggots, I think. Even after much insistence that it's like guacamole! not maggots!

(Also: in a cruel twist of fate, I don't really like eggplant for texture reasons.)
