After a potluck event recently, a friend was offering leftover macaroni and cheese for others to take home. I didn't take any home with me. Later, another friend asked me, "Why is that macaroni and cheese so hard when it's warmed up?" I answered, "She bakes it too long and she probably doesn't make a white sauce and then melt the cheeses in the white sauce." She asked, "Did you say cheeses?" I said, "Yes, but I shouldn't have assumed she used more than one cheese."

In relating the incident to Les, I said, in a hoity-toity voice, "After all, I AM a connoisseur of macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes."

Les said, "There's something intrinsically wrong about using the word connoisseur along with mashed potatoes."

I answered, "And there's something INTRINSICALLY wrong with your using the word intrinsically when there's no damned audience!"
