SH gets beer and a pretzel in a Munich beer garden.
SH: Did you get pine nuts [for the pesto from the basil in my garden, which, along with the cherry tomatoes, are the Germany to the rest of the garden, which is Belgium].
Me: Nope. They were $20 a pound.
SH: You freaked out over pine nuts.*
Me: Yeah. The one freakout I've had since we met five years ago.
SH: There have been more.
Me: A few. But you freak out every day.
SH: That's not true.
Me: Oh yes it is.
SH: Maybe once a week.
Me: Uh-huh. Orders and orders of magnitude more than I freak out.
* Four years ago, at my old house, when I accidentally burned a cup of pine nuts I was toasting. You would freak out, too, if it was your own stupid fault that you ruined something so expensive, especially if you were unemployed at the time.
