Cheese by Jesse Printer Friendly

This started as just a comment on Ray's post about his trip to the supermarket. But, since I haven't written anything in forever, I figured I'd just claim it as inspired and worthy of indexing in it's own right.

'Cheese' is another one of those words, chosen for it's inherent humor. Like, if you were making this story up, cheese would be the obvious choice. Easily overlooked, but maybe secretly rooted for, like that kid in kickball.

Something in the constuction of the thing and the word and their joining has created a unique sense of conceivable absurdity.

For instance.

Let's say my refrigerator contained seven bottles of water and nothing else, and for six days in a row I opened the fridge and took out a bottle of water, but on the seventh day I opened the fridge and it was completely full, top to bottom, side to side, and front to back, with a hundred different types of cheese.

As crazy as that is, you wouldn't question it. You wouldn't be like "What the Eff??? Where'd all this cheese come from??"

You wouldn't even wonder, at least not until later, what happened to that seventh bottle of water.

You'd just stand there for awhile. You'd blink and say "huh" in the way that means, Well, fancy that.

Cheese.

Of course it is.

There's got to be a reason "cheese" is the word we say before pictures. After reading this post, I think it's probably because it kept showing up. "Okay, everybody line up...I'm'a take it on the count of three. One...two...three!" Everybody goes, "Cheese!" Either because it's a funny word, or because some cheese appeared out of nowhere. And they were all very excited about it.

Also, you should probably get your refrigerator looked at. By The Ghostbusters.

It\\\'d be nice if you got online once in awhile Mr Lewis, it is hard to keep in touch with you otherwise, at least from my end. Take it easy, and personally, I probably wouldn\\\'t even be like \\
