|Do you have any idea how hard it is|
to find a compelling picture of cheese?
Me: Tell me a story.
Him: Once upon a time, there was a Jen and she went down to MacLaren's Pub to hang out with 5 people in their 20s who were learning life lessons. Ted was saying that "Barney Stinson" sounded like "Stilton" and that they all had a spirit cheese. [like a spirit animal, but cheese]
Me: Was Ted Mosby's spirit cheese Colby?
Him: No, Colby is Robin's spirit cheese because she looks so much like that actress Cobie Smulders. Ted's was blue cheese.
Me: Because he's an acquired taste?
Him: Yes. (Also, according to a post on Bustle about what your fave cheese says about your love life, liking blue cheese means you're marriage crazy.) Marshalls' was Wisconsin Cheddar, of course, and Lily's was cream cheese.
Me: Not New York Cheddar?
Him: No. She's the schmear that holds the group's bagel together.
For the record, HA says that my spirit cheese is brie because I like it so much and his is Wensleydale (which he's maybe eaten once because he heard about it in Wallace and Gromit).
My nap lasted 2 whole hours, which proves the power of cheese-based bedtime stories.
What's your spirit cheese?
