Chicken-fried steak and a vocab lesson

Since my daughter is out of town and our Friday-night hang out friends' kids are out of town with my daughter, the hubby and I went to our friends' house for dinner last night. The wife half of the couple and I were thinking that we’d make dinner for our boys while they sit out by the pool and talk about boobs, and decided that we were going to make chicken-fried steak. Now, I grew up never having had it, but the hubby’s mom made it all the time when he was younger, so she taught me how to do it, and even though I hardly ever make it (I think it’s gross), it’s an easy recipe, and gravy is even easier, and both my husband and hers absolutely love it, so that’s what we made. She baked potatoes and made us gals a bomb salad, and her husband made me a killer vodka martini, and I’ll tell you what: it was a great evening. After dinner she and I chatted on the couch about everything, I even told her I had been blogging (not even my husband knows about that, he tends to be VERY protective of the funeral related info I have shared, and would be hard to convince that I NEED an outlet to talk about my job), and we had an awesome time.

Conversation I just heard coming from the two desks behind me:
Buffy: I’m so tired of your anti-Semitism, Buck. I mean, this is just not allowed.
Buck: Buf, I swear, if you don’t let me work…I don’t even know what you're talking about, anti-Semitism. Aren’t you supposed to go to lunch?
Buffy: Hey, Doll, what do you call that spot between the balls and ass?...Buck, that’s what you call it.
Me: (answering at the same time Buffy did) It’s a perineum, Buf, or were you looking for taint?
Buck: What?? What did you say, Doll? That’s disgusting. How do you know that?
Me: It’s not disgusting, it’s a word. You need to lighten up.
Buffy: What about a Cloaca, Doll? Do you know what that is?
Me: Nope.
Buffy: Buck, you're a cloaca.

Your husband doesn't know you're blogging? That's awesome. My wife knows I blog, but doesn't read it. She just hears about it second-hand from our friends. Then she's all, "I would appreciate it if you leave me out of your stupid blogs!" She's also has never made me chicken-fried steak, so... Where was I going with this? Oh, yeah: How does a conversation about anti-Semitism turn into one about taints?

Perineum: See also: Choad and Nacho

"How does a conversation about anti-Semitism turn into one about taints?"

Um, the same way yesterday's conversation between them went from hemorrhoids to killing the Vietnamese in the war... Very strange.

And yeah, my hubby knows nothing about it, nor do any of my blogging friends, which is strange, but I'm sure I could get seriously reprimanded if my boss found out about this site, so I'll just keep them all in the dark.

"you're a cloaca" is my new favorite insult.
