Me: It's flippin' hot in here.

Frank: It's not hot in here. (swirling his hips a la Elvis) You're just hot for me, baby.

Me: You are so cheesy.

Frank: (arching an eyebrow) Am I like, government* cheesy, (now dropping his voice an octave into a deep, Rico Suave tone) or Velveeta cheesy?

Me: (gripping my stomach and writhing around on the bed while making horrid retching noises)  OH! THE AGONY! I NEED PEPTO! GIMME THE PINK STUFF! IMMODIUM-AD! TUMS!!!! GAS-X!!!

Frank: (flatly) And you're calling me cheesy?

*government cheese (as defined by Urban Dictionary):

to aid needy families by supplementing their food resources. Used for
making Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Macaroni & Cheese but ALSO
CAUSES severe, bowel obstructing constipation, silent but deadly stinky
gas, and / or "the runs" diarrhea in those who are lactose intolerant.  ex: I just got some Government Cheese, but I'm not gonna make a grill cheese sandwich cause it gave me the runs last time I ate it.

    I grew up on government cheese. And powdered milk. With 6 kids and my mom being a stay at home mom, my dad working at a gas station at night to attend school during the day, it’s how I remember childhood.
    But I don’t remember it as causing any issues intenstinally. I remember our family, together, cutting the cheese. (oh god, I couldn’t help it.)
