of an Old Country Woman
The real-life conversations between Dee (a 71-year-old
country woman) and her 44-year-old neighbor, Vicki
February 20, 2013
Vicki: No, how?
Dee: Government cheese! That makes the best macaroni and cheese in the world.
Vicki: I don’t even think they make government cheese anymore, do they? That’s what they use to serve us at school and I agree, it was great cheese.
Dee: I don’t know if they still make it or not, but it’s been a long time since I had any of it! Back when they used to give it away to poor folks, Mother used to get it every now and then. But they gave ya a whole lot of it and Mother couldn’t eat that much cheese ’cause it constipated her, so she’d give it to us. That’s why the boys and I used to eat so much macaroni and cheese … ’cause the cheese was free!
Dee: What’s so funny?
Vicki: I don’t know. I guess it just tickled me how you so matter-of-factly brought up your mother’s constipation.
Dee: Well, don’t go puttin’ that up on FaceFoot. Nobody wants to hear about Mother’s bowels.
Vicki: FaceFoot? What happened to SpaceBook?
Dee: I don’t know. I guess it grew some feet.
