I was grocery shopping today and they had quinoa salad. I said to myself, “quinoa is not a food,” and then cocked my head and wondered where I’d heard it.
I said to myself, “That looks good. They don’t sell their tabouleh salad here anymore, just quinoa. Maybe I should try it.”
A ghost of a voice whispered, “Quinoa is not food.”
I paused again, and then I remembered: Sam/ copperbadge. I then figured that I’m not nearly as food-sensitive as he seems to be, and I like most foods, so I’ll try the salad, and I purchased it and took it home to eat.
As it turns out, quinoa is not food.
