[3:21 PM] Me: You don’t eat chickpeas, do you?

[3:24 PM] Bob …well …no…you have me there…but…Super Saver had….ranch and bar-b-que….or dorito lookibg color…thought maybe since you can get anything…honey roasted…

[3:26 PM] Me: Chickpeas come in a sack. A can, maybe …not snack size bags.

[3:28 PM] Bob …so…no ….then…¿?…

[3:28 PM] Me: You, Sir, are a bit of a cad. Aren’t you?

[3:30 PM] Me: Sorry. I meant rube.

[3:31 PM] Bob ….no…I think not…your off about the flavored…peas, eh….

[3:32 PM] Me: What do you call a man who’s never had a chickpea, flavored or otherwise, but a rube?

[3:37 PM] Bob …its just if I were going to jump in ….I would go with honey roasted…thats all…

[3:37 PM] Me: And. For me, it’s just that THAT makes you a rube, Sir. That’s all.

[3:38 PM] Me: Here’s what you do. Get a can, add them to your next salad. Like croutons. Protein. Fiber. Bonzo. Good for you

[3:38 PM] Me: Then…

[3:39 PM] Me: Get a sackful. Soak. Roast on a cookie sheet, with garlic, coriander, whatever. Eat like peanuts.

[3:39 PM] Bob …well…if you say so…

[3:39 PM] Me: Then, Sir, and only then you can hold your head up. And be called not a rube
