The Lettuce Collector

She explained to me that produce was essential to progress. “Science?” she would say. “Show me science on an empty stomach!”

“Everything sure is great, isn’t it?”

“Yeah, absolutely. I can’t think of a single possible thing that could make my life better.”

“More steak?”

“Nah; I’ve got plenty.”

“More bacon?”

“I already eat it four times a day…”

“More steak wrapped in bacon?”

“…I think you may have something there.”
