Food, glorious food

During today’s trip to Rock Harbour with Mr Osgood (legend), we realised that we have a slight obsession with food here at the iguana station. If we’re not eating it, we’re talking about it. If we’re not talking about it, we’re thinking about it. We are all pretty sure that we did not behave this way back in our respective home countries. I cannot think of an explanation.

Good food seems to make us extremely happy. Tonight we say farewell to Jamie and he has chosen El Picante, the Mexican restaurant, as the place to go. I confess I have been thinking about cheese quesadillas ALL DAY. Why?!

And it isn’t just nice eating-out food that excites us. We become excited even at the food WE cook. Which is the same. Every day. For example:

Four iguana station volunteers sit around the balcony table eating their lunches which they have themselves just prepared. Furtive glances are being made at each others plates of food.

Volunteer 1: What have you got there?

Volunteer 2: Pasta. What have you got?

Volunteer 1: I’ve got spaghetti. Yours looks really nice though.

Volunteer 2: Yeah, I just added a few bits of pepper and someĀ onion.

Volunteer 1: Mm, looks really nice. What have you got?

Volunteer 3: I’ve just got pasta.

Volunteer 1: Looks nice.

Volunteer 3: Yeah it’s not bad. Yours looks nice too.

Volunteer 1: What have you got?

Volunteer 4: Macaroni from a box.

Volunteer 1, 2 and 3: That looks really nice.

If anybody deviates from this pattern and cooks up, heaven forbid, a RICE dish, then we will all explode with curiosity and jealousy. Riveting stuff, I tell you.
