“I heard you the first time. But is it really your favorite food? It’s so plain.” Rachel asked.

Marcy put her hands on her hips. “What do you mean? Rice is DELICIOUS!”

Rachel covered her ears. “Tone it down, Banshee.”

“Look, good rice has a nice clean flavor, and it works better than pasta for sauce absorption. Plus many cultures use it in their desserts. Can you think of anything else like that?”

“Breadpudding.” Rachel countered.

“Bleh.” Marcy made a face. “That stuff has rabbit poop, I mean raisins.” Ticking off on her fingers as she went, she listed the different ways rice could be used.

Rachel put her hands up. “Woah, heavy rice balls?”

“Yeah, I discovered it by accident. I used too much water in the rice cooker so the rice got supersaturated, then I cooked the rice on the stove trying to get rid of the excess water. The whole thing turned into glue, delicious, delicious, rice flavored glue. Which me and Angie rolled into balls and let cool. It. Was. So. Good. Hey, we should totally make some!”

    Plain white rice is one of my favorite foods, just behind plain noodles. Bravo~*`

    “Rice has a nice clean flavor for good rice”? I don’t grok the meaning. Lop off the last three words and I do.

    Thank you, e’rebody.

    @August- Last minute edits changed that sentence a couple of times but I see the problem AND what I originally meant. So that change is complete.

    This was just a silly one-off story from the phrase “I love rice”. It is interesting that this got more love than some of the stories that I feel were, um, better.

    Just goes to show how people are affected by our stories differently than we would expect.
