Taking de-bate

There are certain observations Antonio or I will make in the other’s presence that never fail to trigger a lightly combative response, which usually takes the form of a parting shot as one of us exits the room. These little skirmishes often go to cultural ideas about everyday well-being. We’ve been having the same arguments for almost two decades now.

The below might be considered a kind of prologue to a post that’ll follow later this week.


4 arguments I will never win

  • It’s not “the influenza”; it’s allergies.

  • Sleeping with the window open is not responsible for my root canal.

  • A little yogurt, some lentils, and a brisk stroll will not stop my violent vomiting.

  • A wet bathing suit on a scorching beach will not hasten your demise or give you the influenza.
