A CONVERSATION I HAD TONIGHT, OR: MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH BAKED BEANS

  1. Context: @DanM and I had just purchased some cans of Heinz vegetarian baked beans at Vons.
  2. Context: I love these baked beans. Intensely.
  3. Me: "Should we drop the baked beans off at home first? Or leave them in the car while we're at the movie?"
    (We were heading out to a movie)
  4. Dan: "Hmmm. I don't know."
  5. Me: "Leaving them in the car makes it much more of a target for thieves trying to break in."
  6. Dan: "If we keep them in the car, you'll feel comforted knowing there are baked beans right nearby."
  7. The result.
  8. No one broke into my car while we were at the movie.
  9. Their loss.
