@coolallison Don't let it come out of your nose?
Um...Dodai Stewart's name is not Dodai Smith.
I love Dorothy Parker so much. I don't think I could pick a favorite poem of hers, but when I was a teenager I wrote "Observation" on my bedroom wall. It goes thus:
If I don't drive around the park,
I'm pretty sure to make my mark.
If I'm in bed each night by ten,
I may get back my looks again,
If I abstain from fun and such,
I'll probably amount to much,
But I shall stay the way I am,
Because I do not give a damn.
@frenz.lo I'm sure it is. I just meant that the upper middle class people I've met (with a couple of exceptions) are the kind of conservative Republicans who would list veganism among other traits they'd attribute to liberals and who use the word "liberal" disparagingly. So, I doubt they've heard of vegenaise and would scorn it if they did.
What I was getting at is that no one I know, friend or not (the people I just described decidedly not), fits the profile.
@adorable-eggplant And I should have responded with this...apparently I can't gif today? At the link: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mb8hjxN0bJ1rqe7e5o1_500.gif
@Olivia2.0 The cinnamon twists also pair well with the nacho cheese (no, really), but I haven't ordered twists since they started selling churros. Hot, cinnamon, legal crack are those.
@adorable-eggplant High 5 indeed! http://1.media.collegehumor.cvcdn.com/64/33/39bee4f33728e1f54402d858540d373c-weekend-update-high-five.gif
@frenz.lo I don't know anybody like that. Even the few upper-middle class people with whom I'm acquainted would tilt their heads to the side like confused puppies at the word "vegenaise."
On one hand, I'm tempted to join you on your mission. On the other, I really want to pretend those people don't actually exist.
"Well, do you eat cheese from a tin? Would you?" Um...duh? Not cheese whiz (which comes in a jar, anyway), but concession stand nacho cheese for damn sure. Knowing that bright, processed slurm comes from a can doesn't even give me a moment's pause.
Processed cheese product is the driving force behind my Taco Bell addiction.
I've definitely responded to a friend's engagement announcement with "Wow! You must be so excited!" in the past instead of the "Fuck no. Don't do this." I really felt. Focusing on the ring doesn't always work, though, because sometimes you can see your friend's finger turning green as you make your excited noises and gestures.
