Since I’m not much of a vegetable fan (that’s a bit of an understatement), I cautiously sampled a small piece of the green stuff. I was keeping a close eye on Jeff too. I wanted to make sure that he was concentrating on his own plate just in case I needed to discreetly discard the green stuff into my napkin.
To my surprise, I kind of liked it. So I just had to ask, “What is this green stuff? I actually like it.”
Jeff looked at me with an expression I couldn’t discern. Then, with a straight face, he replied, “Green beans.”
