American Cheese Board - Ep. 140

Morgan turns the Roquefort over a few times eying it. He weighs it with a little bounce in his hand, and sets it back. He picks up a dill Havarti, and tries to smell it through the plastic. Not getting anything, he quickly moves to mime a close visual inspection. Looking over his shoulder, Morgan returns it to the cooler.

Under a fast worsening knit brow, Morgan's eyes scan the refrigerated display looking for anything familiar to guide their ship back out of the deep waters. Gruyere, Camembert, Jarlsberg, Butterkase, Stinking Bishop, Gloucester, Gouda, Goudam ("are those the same thing?"), Mascarpone, Oscypek, BellaVitano, Aged Cheddar, Brie.

"Wait! Go back! Cheddar. I think I had that on a burger once. Why is it aged, though? It doesn't look right. Isn't cheddar supposed to be traffic cone orange?"

Having regained some measure of bearing, Morgan sets the fifteen dollar cheese in his basket. He sighs a relieved sigh, full of the embryonic groans of myriad proto-curses. He blinks several times trying to tune out the sick green noise of the fluorescent lights. He sniffs sharply, swallows, and keeps shopping.

At the register, Morgan rings up his Dr. Pepper Ten, his Too Much Goddamn Stuf Oreos, a loaf of white bread, the sanitary napkins he was there for in the first place, and the Store-brand American Singles he talked himself into getting immediately after leaving the cheese display. He had come so close to good taste, but today wouldn't be the day.

Morgan carefully lays the bread in the bottom of the bag, sets the remaining groceries on top of it, pays, and leaves. On the drive home, Morgan thinks to himself "Did I forget condoms?" He laughs out loud at the joke in his mind, and turns up the radio.

This week we talk about cheesy games with guest Rich Meister.

Enjoy the show.
