Potatoes are Free Balling
This week's Spin Cycle is anything goes. We can choose our own topic. My Spin is my challenge with language.
I have always had a problem expressing myself verbally. You will find a rather lengthy post describing my problem. An example I used in that post was when I wanted Queenmaker to get the milk out of the fridge for me.
"Honey, could you, um, um get, ah, ah grass! COW! um, um, you know, liquid-y WHITE! Cold! in big box?"
Poor guy, he didn't have a clue. He even looked around the room trying to find what I'm talking about. Bless him.
The other day I said,
"I'm going downstairs to stitch, jeans, um, um, Water! Soap! Switch-y machine! ah, ah Clean. Basket. Stuff." Translation: I'm going downstairs to start some laundry.
But my latest, Potatoes are Free Balling. Whew. Wow. I don't even know what to say.
QueenMaker and I decided that in the future we would bake potatoes without wrapping them in foil - Aluminum - Alzheimer connection scare. We now bake potatoes in a casserole dish. They taste better. Or maybe I think they taste better than being foiled because its supposedly a healthier way to go, so of course they taste better.
Anyways, I was trying to express to QueenMaker that the potatoes had a drier texture than those wrapped up in foil, which produced more steam. I said,
"They're drier but still tender. These potatoes were not harnessed, um, they were free from, um, um, they weren't wrapped up, um, um (hitting my head hoping for clarity). The potatoes are free balling it!"
