Yesterday, as Mr. B and I are taking a walk:
Me: So, a Pinkberry just opened in Denver and there are ridiculous lines.
Mr. B: Pinkberry’s going to be a mainstay in the future.
Me: I think this whole frozen yogurt thing is a huge fad and the market is oversaturated, just like it got in the 1980s.
Mr. B: (defensively) No it’s not. Frozen yogurt is here to stay and so is the healthy food movement.
**20-minute argument about whether frozen yogurt is a fad or will stay and how it relates to the healthy food movement**
Mr. B: It’s not a fad. I’m going to make sure of that. I’m going to e-mail everyone I know to eat frozen yogurt. I am going to spam the hell out of my whole mailing list.
Me: Ah! The truth comes out. It’s not a fad because you don’t want it to be a fad because you love frozen yogurt. Who are you going to spam, your grandparents? And then they’ll go to Pinkberry with their Macs and their hipster glasses?
Mr. B: Yes. And I’m going to make sure everyone else loves it, too. I’ll e-mail our family and tell them frozen yogurt supports Israel. They’ll eat it.
Me: What are you, the kingmaker of desserts?
Mr. B: Correct.
