The Eatsdropper likes boobies

Hope everyone’s enjoying the gorg weather as much as we’ve been. All the more reason to get out there and horn in on other people’s conversations. Keep sending those nosy notes to eatsdropper-at-seantimberlake-dot-com.



At an office party featuring a buffet of Indian food:


Coworker 1:
"Oh, that looks good. Where’s the food from?"

Coworker 2:
"India."

– Eatsdropped by Anita at work

Customer: "What’s the difference between black raspberries and blackberries?"
Farmer: "Well, it’s like the difference between apples and oranges: they are two distinctly different fruits."

– Eatsdropped by Shuna at NYC Saturday Greenmarket in Union Square

Man waiting for his Blue Bottle coffee, looking over a flat of Miette cupcakes and brownies, wondering if they’re free:
    "Do you think they’re a social experiment?" 

– Eatsdropped by Stephanie and her husband the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market
(Turns out,
the Blue Bottle folks were encouraging coffee drinkers to enjoy the
delicacies while dealing with the long wait for their coffee.)


Chris Cosentino
, to market goer who was eating cherries voraciously off
of his market cart: 

    "Dude, those are cherries I bought for my restaurant.  It’s not a tasting cart."

– Eatsdropped by Jen at Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

Catherine: "Man or woman, gay or straight, everyone likes boobies."

– Eatsdropped by yours truly (and a dozen others) at R&G Lounge


One year ago today … I made a lovely chilled melon soup with mint and prosciutto. Might just have to make that again.

  1. Really? I distinctly heard boobies. Maybe the gay boys like boobies, and straight girls like boobs.

  2. I think I’m in love with the CC comment. I have myself been in that very situation…
    as for the above discussion, I prefer the boobies because it reminds me of being a child, but in SF the preferred word is chest. it covers many of the trans bases too…

  3. I have to respectfully disagree with Shuna. This post alone proves that although we might not quite see eye to eye on the issue, ‘chest’ is definitely not the preferred word in san francisco.

  4. OK, two things.
    1 – I’m “Fa” up there. For some reason, the “temeh” didn’t come across.
    2 – “Boobs” and “Boobies” are both acceptable. “Bazoombas” is best kept for the sexually inhibited and fraternity boys. “Titties” is fun, but only after a few drinks. “Chest” is really far too sterile. My personal favorite, however, captures the magnitude {snort} and radness of said orbs: “Bodacious ta-tas”
