Another great story from a follower who reads the blog in regards to the silliness he’s overheard on his commuter train from Teen Barbies or Barbies-in-Training.
It seems this young ladies, 3 in total, were riding the GO train into Toronto and discussing food options they enjoy. Based on the story told to me it went something like this:
“I really enjoy certain seafood, like crab and stuff. And I absolutely love shrimp”, says teen #1.
“No, I’m not a fan of that stuff”, retorts teen #2. “I’m more a beef girl.”
“Yeah, I don’t really like beef”, replies teen #1.
“Well, growing up my dad and grandad used to go splits on half a cow”, explains teen #2. “So we wound up with a lot of beef and all the different cuts of beef in our freezer.”
“Oh wow, that would be nice. The different steaks and hamburgers and stuff”, chipped in teen #3.
At this moment it all went downhill as teen #1 added, “Oh that is cool. Did you get bacon with that too?”
Teen #2 replies “Yeah I think we did. I always had bacon in the house so I guess bacon does come with it”
Apparently a few moments passed when all of a sudden one of thos scientific miracles, like the Big Bang, occured on the train and teen #3 had a great moment of clarity (or at least the connection of another synapse) and she piped up “Um, I don’t think bacon comes from a cow…I think bacon comes from pigs”
The three girls dropped the conversation at that point, probably due to the confusion they were all feeling at such a monumental step in intellect.
