Sometimes conversations drift to not so relevant subjects, after all one of the most popular television shows of all time, Seinfeld, was based on “nothing” as one of the lead characters, George, defined it. Such was the case last weekend when several of my teenage friends and I were “hanging-out” shooting the breeze. Joey randomly asked, “So, what do you guys think is fall’s best comfort food?”
Janice immediately replied, “Sweet-potato fries.”
“Yeah, weren’t they great,” Kelly injected, referring to the fact that she and Janice shared a basket of sweet potato friends at the Big-E fall festival last weekend.
“My vote is for some nice, spicy hot wings,” Paul suggested.
“But you can eat spicy hot wings all year long, therefore there not necessarily falls best comfort food,” Billy stated.
“My favorite is this right here,” Terry stated as he dipped a french fry into the portion of ketchup inside the basket of french fries he was holding and then ate it.
“That could be it,” Eddie added as he reached into Terry’s basket of french fries and pulled out two french fries.
“Again, guys,” Billy began. “You can eat french fries all year long.”
“I think fall’s best comfort food is Sippity pumpkin spice flavored hot chocolate,” Colleen suggested.
“I think you’re onto something their Colleen,” Billy stated. “While people drink hot chocolate all year long, usually over ice in the summer, they tend to only drink pumpkin spice flavored hot chocolate in the fall.”
“So why do you think that is?” Kelly asked Billy.
“Probably because it tastes great and is associated with fall activities such as pumpkin picking, going to football games, walking through the woods with your girlfriend looking at the changing color of the leaves, etc.”
“I think you “nailed” it Colleen, and Billy is right in his analysis,” I stated. From my prospective pumpkin spice flavored hot chocolate is fall’s best comfort food. Can I get a vote on it?”
A few seconds later as I was counting hands I announced, “By unanimous consent, it’s agreed. Sippity pumpkin spice flavored hot chocolate is fall’s best comfort food.”
No sooner had I declared Sippity pumpkin spice flavored hot chocolate fall’s best comfort food than Jessie asked, “Who’s the greatest cartoon character of all time?”
“Stewie Griffin,” I loudly replied, amidst the calls of, ‘Homer Simpson’, ‘Bugs Bunny’, ‘Popeye’, Fred Flintstone’ and ‘Winnie the Pooh’”.
