I hope enough time has passed that I can tell this story and totally razz my roommate about this funny thing he's done. At any rate, it makes me laugh, and I want to share it.
So Toasteroven decided to apply for a job at the Mexican restaurant where I work. I wasn't able to be there for the interview, but from what I can gather from both sides, the discussion included the following:
"Describe for me your favorite food."
"Oh, Gushers. They're made from dried fruit and they have juice inside. I sometimes eat like two boxes of them in one day."
"Okay, do you like Mexican food?"
"Actually, not really, but I can fake it."
When he recounted this to me, I couldn't help but laugh.
"Why did you tell them you don't like Mexican food?"
"Well, I thought they would value my integrity."
"Well, Toasteroven, you sure killed that the moment you said you could fake it. Why didn't you just fake it right then?"
"Oh. I didn't think of that."
Poor little Toasty. You just kill me sometimes, bro.
Note: think of this more as a historical fiction, since, as I said, I've had to recreate these conversations for which I wasn't present. You can still see why it's so funny to me, though, right? Maybe I should have waited until after he got that job before I shared this. Oh, well. You know I love you.
