Scene opens with Beloved in the kitchen making scrambled eggs when he hears incoherent yelling coming from the living room.
Me (entering kitchen): Oh, I’m just yelling at that stupid Botox commercial.
Beloved: Why are you yelling at a Botox commercial?
Me: Because all of the side effects are symptoms of botulism!
Me: Because that’s pretty much what Botox is – botulism bacteria.
Beloved: What are the symptoms?
Me: Basically it slowly paralyzes you until you can’t breathe and then you die.
Beloved: Oh, that sounds fun. Why would anyone willingly be injected with botulism?
Me: Beats the hell out of me.
Beloved (going into sarcastic mode): Gee, you think the FDA would make laws against something like that!
Me (joining him in sarcastic mode): But dear, the FDA will never outlaw silly little Botox – if botulism becomes a problem, they’ll just make it illegal for us to can our own food.
Someone tell me I’m wrong.
