ben: you think enids is open at 6ish?
me: enids is open all day
Benjamin: oh right cool
me: well that's not totally accurate
it's open at 5pm
plus brunch on the weekend
me: it was i think the first place i ever went to brunch in new york
and luncheonette was the first place i ever got an egg cream
Benjamin: a good hispter start. oh man i love egg crems
me: i thought it was grooooosss
Benjamin: and i love introducing them to people from other lands
it's not what i thought it was going to be
i wanted it to taste like a frozen custard milkshake
not at all
Benjamin: ewwwww that sounds like bull semen!
so you havent explored egg creams further?
me: not really
i don't think i ever tried another one
that was back in 2003
Benjamin: well atleast you gave it a shot
me: i have not tried to make a shake from frozen custard, however
which is next on my list
Benjamin: yuck! what is custard?
like what IS it?
it's sooooo delicious
i think they might sell frozen custard at the shake shack
it's really creamy
and not as sweet as ice cream
i want one right now
Benjamin: sounds intriguing
how do you feel about rice pudding?
me: LOVE IT
rice to riches is one of my favorite places ON EARTH
i also love bread pudding
just had some at maggie brown's on sunday night
Benjamin: hate rice pudding. nearly vomitted from the mention of bread pudding
its all like leftovers from a gore movie
i support your love of these items
me: you know what i don't love?
which is weird because i DO love bubble tea
Benjamin: yeah bubble tea i have enjoyed
the word tapioca sends chills up my spine
me: why do you have such a prejudice against chewy gooey goodness?
were you molested with it?
Benjamin: hahaha nooooo. though im not hugely into chocolate either
cheesecake might be my paradise
me: mmhmm i'm somewhat ambivalent about cheesecake
Benjamin: god its so good
me: rice to riches has a cheesecake flavored pudding
Benjamin: could this be the compromise that ushers in a new golden age?
me: it's very good pudding
