Allow me to introduce you to Andy and Allison, two particularly affable Seattleites at the music festival on Saturday afternoon. We had a short chat about festival foods and prices.
- "It's a luxury to have corn."
How is the corn?
Andy: It's delicious.
How is the price of the corn?
Andy: It was reasonable, considering the drought.
There's a corn drought?
Andy: Why yes, there is a corn drought.
Because of the lack of rain.
Andy: Why yes, it's a luxury to have corn.
What else do you anticipate eating this weekend?
Andy: More corn.
How about yourself?
Allison: I don't know, something else probably.
Have you eaten anything yet so far?
Allison: Um, some lamb gyros.
How was that?
Allison: That was good.
How was the price of that?
Allison: It was kind of expensive.
Overall though, you'd say that things are fairly priced?
Allison: Yes, I would say that.
And with that, we arrived at the heart of the matter. I should also note, during my conversation with Andy and Allison, I was all ears. Sorry about that.
