Good Man Humors Me

“You’re crazy.”

“I’m not crazy. I am wise,” Good Man replied.

“No, you’re not old enough to be wise.”

“What?”

“Wisdom has this implication of age. It’s like being smart, but with the benefit of age.”

Good Man laughed. “So ‘smart’ is like cabbage and ‘wisdom’ is like kimchi?”

“Exactly.”

‎”You are Brazil squirrel. Samba squirrel!”

I don’t know why Good Man calls me a squirrel more often than he calls me any other animal. He has no explanation.

A few nights ago, Good Man made dinner (samgyeopsal).

“I can cook!”

“This is really good,” I agreed, “But there’s a lot. Maybe we should save some for tomorrow.”

“Oh no. Cooked pork in the fridge? It’s not healthy.”

I stared at him.

“Yeah,” he said, “[GoodMan]pedia.org. Look it up.”

    Pork is an iffy meat in general. I don’t know exact details but you do need to be more careful about pork than other meats.

    I loved the kimchi wisdom comment. Maybe all those kimchi haters also can’t handle wisdom…

    Except the pork was entirely cooked through, and we were just talking about keeping it in the fridge for a day. He just wanted to eat all the pork in one sitting. :)
