Jack and I are currently on a train heading into NYC for a concert (D Smoke, winner of the 2019 show Rhythm & Flow) If you haven’t seen it go watch it! I didn’t spoil it for you. Everyone knows D Smoke will win. He’s that good!
Because I knew we’d probably be skipping lunch I wanted to make a pretty good breakfast. We had scrambled eggs, potatoes, lox and cream cheese (mine in half of a red pepper, Jack’s on an everything bagel.) So good and so filling!
Jack was inhaling his bagel and a piece fell on his plate. I saw him pick it up and look at it strangely.
Jack: Hey what’s this, chicken?
me: What are you talking about? It’s a piece of the bagel.
Jack: No, look at it. I think it’s chicken.
So I took the piece of food from him, as I have been doing for 16 years lol, and saw it was a piece of bagel.
me: Jack, it’s a piece of your bagel with cream cheese on it.
Jack: Oh it looked like the dry chicken that you…
He saw my expression…
Jack: … you know… when chicken gets real dry, it looks like that.
me: Yeah good save. What I’m wondering is why your first thought is not that it’s a piece of chewed bagel but that it somehow became chicken…
Jack: How would I know, you made it.
