Palinode: I made a fine pot of tea last night.
Schmutzie: Did you?
Palinode: I’m clearly going to make some more tea right now.
Schmutzie: Oh, clearly.
Palinode: It’s pretty obvious that’s the way things are going.
Schmutzie: I really like the green tea with the toasted rice flavour.
Palinode: (slight pause) That’s not the tea I’m referring to, with regard to making some more.
Schmutzie: I know, but I really like that toasted rice flavour. I think I just like that flavour of toast with anything… tea…
Schmutzie: Ice cream…*
Palinode: That’s good ice cream, with the toast flavour.
Schmutzie: And toast.
Palinode: Toast flavour pairs well with toast.
Schmutzie: We should sell bread with that flavour!
Palinode: Bread that tastes like toast?
Schmutzie: You wouldn’t need to put it in the toaster for that toast taste!
Palinode: I don’t think that would sell.
Schmutzie: I think people would eat it, like, at least twice.
Palinode: I think people would throw up, like, a lot.
*Toasted sesame ice cream. Available at Japanese restaurants.
