probably american…

hungry…

no…

there’s some cold lasagna in the fridge…

no thanks…

warm it up for ya’…

that’s O.K. ….

it’s the good kind…got it at the store…

really…I’m fine…

just heat-n-eat…

I said no thanks…

alright…but ya’ should eat somethin’…

don’t want to…not in the mood…

you have to be in a mood to eat…it’s not somethin’ you do second nature…like breathin’…i never forget to breath…i guess if i did i’d be dead…that’s funny isn’t it…forgettin’ to breath…i could spend a whole day just worryin’ ’bout it…worried if i remembered to breath…but…i shouldn’t worry ’bout it ’cause like i said it’s second nature…just somethin’ you do over the course of the day and night time too…you don’t stop breathin’ in your sleep…if you did you’d die…that would be a horrible death now wouldn’t it…can you imagine being asleep and then all of the sudden you stopped breathin’ for some reason or other…that’d be a real pickle now wouldn’t it…and what i’m sayin’ is breathin’ is just somethin’ we do…suggestin’ that maybe eatin’ is the same way…we just simply do it…but you’re not in the mood huh…

no…

well O.K. …makes more for me…maybe you don’t like store bought lasagna…maybe you’d prefer if i made it from scratch…noodles…sausage…sauce… the whole shot…well don’t think i can’t mister…i’ll show you a fine lasagna one of these days…you’ll eat it and say that is one fine lasagna…you know they say lasagna is Italian but i think it’s more american than anything…what we did was americanize it…just like that egg foo yung stuff…now that’s a truly american dish…we took it over…just like this land from the Indians…we just took it over…we didn’t ask…we just did it…want some coffee…

I don’t think so…

suit yourself…i’m gonna fix me a cup…i might even have some of that cold lasagna…not even heat it up…just eat it cold right from the pan with a big plastic spoon you’d use for soup…sure you don’t want any coffee…sure…you listenin’…didya hear me…you’re ignorin’ me…are your eyes shut…are ya’ asleep…answer me…are ya’ asleep…well…O.K…but don’t say i didn’t ask…you wanna blanket…some cover…i got a turquoise one i picked up in New Mexico a long time ago…back when i was goin’ ‘cross america on a Greyhound…got cold on that bus so i bought me this Mexican blanket…wonder if it was made by real Mexicans…probably not…probably american…probably american…
