Men don't get cheese the way women do. Men always make joking references (which sometimes get them silently ice picked through their cerebral cortex) about women and chocolate but they don't realize that while chocolate is important it is really about the cheese.
Some time ago I was craving cheese while at my local, very expensive, mini grocery. I splurged on a small (I mean really small for $7.00), block of a cheese called Dubliner. And thus began a serious addiction that has spread the length of my neighbourhood and beyond.
Dubliner is like a cross between Cheddar and Heaven..no really!!!! Dubliner can be a breakfast food, snack, solace on a completely crap day, dinner with a few crackers and a bit of bread or even a way to choke down evidence of crime.
Ok so the last idea stems from the fact that no addiction is quite as much fun if you are the only one. So I started to feed Dubliner to my friends. Women friends. Men don't get it. They eat a piece and say, "Yeah that's good" and then they walk away. I have never seen a woman just walk away from a piece of Dubliner. Nope, we will all fight to the end for the last scrap. Evidence...
a real text conversation between my co-blogger and I
Her: "Omg. I may kill my children, slather them in cheese and eat them."
Me: "Nom nom nom"
The implication was she was putting a slice or 10 of Dubliner on them. Really!!
Of course we can always blame Costco for the seriousness of this addiction. Like any good drug supplier they get you hooked with the volumne discount. One lovely friend discovered that Costco carries it for the same price but for a WAY BIGGER BLOCK OF CHEESE!!! YEAH BABY!! So of course we now have Dubliner runs out to Costco and if any one of us is going a text needs to be sent out that says. Heading to Costco. Dubliner? To which everyone responds with their order.
Ok I can't write anymore about cheese. All this has made me hungry. Its 10:00 and I need some Dubliner.
Those (women) of you who haven't already tried it are going to go and get some today. I just know it.
