So I began to call him Templeton and I'll sing, "Smorgasbord, smorgasbord" when he's 'creating' in the kitchen. Sometimes I think he opens the fridge, sees a bunch of leftovers and he's all...
His latest concoction came about because he made the grave mistake of messing up my taco meat. He thought it would be great to add some Paprika to the meat - however, I apparently made the graver mistake of purchasing SMOKED paprika (so therefore I suppose the fault lies with me). That stuff is potent. I wasn't a fan of the tacos we were eating and I blamed the Target brand seasoning I had bought until he fessed up. For his punishment I consigned him to eat taco leftovers all the days of
his life the week.
So as he was making a grilled cheese sandwich he decided to put taco meat in the middle.
Today at lunch I told him he should name them.
Templeton: What, like Chad?
Me: No, like how grilled cheese sandwiches are named grilled cheese sandwiches, just something more creative for those.
Templeton: The best grilled cheese sandwich - ever
('ever' said like this)
Then Templeton asked me what the best of something was and I said, "Babe Ruth?" Which got us on a discussion of whether or not Babe was still the best and I remembered a baseball player from the 90's, that may have been better. Toby McGuire or something.
Templeton: (Laugh) Spiderman? Do you mean Mark McGuire? The guy all roided up?
Me: I don't remember that part but yeah.
Templeton: It was Mark. (shakes head) Toby McGuire.
Me: Toby McGuire it is.
*Typing it in on my phone as a possible name.
Me: OH! Who's that actor that you made the rap about?* The guy from Fargo.
Templeton: William H. Macy?
Me: That's the one.
Introducing to the world
The William H. Macy
I actually got up the nerve to try some of it today. A tiny bit. I couldn't stop laughing as the little chunk approached my mouth - I laughed out of fear more than anything. But I survived (for now) and survey says, "it's not terrible."
Stay tuned for more meals from Templeton's Trough.
*Templeton has a rap for William H. Macy. When it's done we hope to achieve YouTube fame and enough money to live out retirement comfortably.
