Coversation.

Phone: ring….ring…
Woman I Don’t Know: Hello?
Me: Hi, is Sam there?
WIDK: Yeah. Are you coming over?
Me: Why? Is there a thing?
WIDK: Yeah, you should totally come over. You want to talk to Sam?
Me: Yes, please.
Sam: Hello?
Me: Who was that? Is there a thing?
Sam: We’re painting my apartment.
Me: You don’t have an apartment.
Sam: I bought one.
Me: Wow! You’re officially the richest person I know.
Sam: I’m really not!
Me: How do you know? Anyway, I saw online that we have to RSVP for tonight.
Sam: I did, don’t worry.
Me: Okay. Can I wear jeans?
Sam: I don’t know. I’m wearing a skirt.
Me: (Histrionic Teenager Mode)But I always wear jeans to church.
Sam: It’s an ordination. You should dress up.
Me: But we belong to a lentil-based faith.
Sam: But it’s an important occasion for Laura, and there probably won’t be any lentils there. Wear a dress or something.
Me: (Big Teenage Sigh) Okay.

    Which faith is based on lentils?! I believe the Pythagoreans held them in high regard…

    I’m a Unitarian. It’s pretty legume-heavy all around. Of course, we don’t actually base our faith on lentils, as that would be silly, but there are a lot of vegetarian and vegan Unitarians. So…a lot of lentil-based potluck dishes.

    Among Quakers, there are also lots of vegetarians. But there seem to be an inordinately large number of food allergies and intolerances. Which means trying to avoid gluten and sugar and onions and garlic and… It gets crazy. A bag of apples was a common addition to a pot luck since it was safe for everyone.

    I don’t know what I’d cook to try and get around a myriad of food intolerances. I think I’d go the bag of apples route as well.
