Silv and I were cruising through some recipe's and found one we would really like to try. Unfortunately I can't find it at the moment! Doesn't really matter for the purpose of this post considering that I am not writing about the recipe but rather about the ensuing conversation.
You see the main ingredients were Brie cheese (one of my fav's) and the ever so lovely fruit, the Pear!
Now Silv seems to have a problem with the name of this fruit as it's not a pair of anything. When you have just the one it's a 'single' (or so he claims). He also asked me, "Skye, if you have 2 Pears does that really mean you have 4? Really, "says he,"everyone knows that when you have 2 pairs of anything you have 4 of any 1 thing! And therefore 2 Pears should be 4 singles!"
And on he went about how Pears were so thoroughly mis-named. You truly haven't heard someone talk about a topic of any sort until you've heard Silv or someone much like him, go into a long disertation on the topic. That is exactly what he did here. I really wish that I had recorded him so that I could transcribe it for you now, but as it is, I've forgotten 90% of what he had said.
Or is that 2 Pears?
