we had The Conversation yesterday - you know, the one where you determine how it would go down if you were trapped together without food. joe hopes that i would eat him if he died; under no circumstances would i do so. i'd be consumed, though; i'd even get sneaky and perish so that he'd feel obligated. okay, but it would be very difficult. he pauses. what if i could make you into jerky?

1: mom, i have a question of dire importance for you.
2: yes, i'll play scrabble.
1: no - if you were stuck somewhere and starving and you -
2: no, i'd never eat a baby.

so there's that.
