My wife pointed to a dish with cheeseburger remnants.
“Why did you eat that when you knew we were going out for lunch?”
I riposted, “I wasn’t thinking.”
“How come you weren’t thinking?”
“I wasn’t thinking.”
“You should have been thinking you weren’t thinking so you could have been thinking,” she said.
“”I,” said I, “couldn’t have thinking I wasn’t thinking so I could have been thinking because I wasn’t thinking to think I could have been thinking I should have been thinking I wasn’t thinking.”
“Okay,” she said.
“Okay,” I said.
I wonder what sort of conversations did Mr. and Mrs. Rene Descartes have. Oh, for the record I only ate a half a cheeseburger as I had begun to think.
“I think I should be thinking about this cheeseburger, therefore I am.”
– Rene Descartes in his first attempt at proving his existence
– Paul R. De Lancey – culinary thinker
