texan grilled corn with garlic herb butter

Everyone needs a true friend they can count on not to fuck up their corn.

Mine comes in the form of the girl in this photo, eating said corn, which might've been the best thing we ate during this feast, who lovingly slathered on the garlic butter and went to town with the Reynolds Wrap while I stirred macaroni and scraped foreign crusts off the grill grates.

She and I only have a couple of topics of conversation we cycle through on a regular basis. They are:

  • the lack of appropriate singles in our area
  • where to drink margaritas
  • quotes from the classic youtube manifesto Unforgivable 
  • getting away with not showering
  • tips and tricks for how to not be murdered in juarez mexico*
  • burrito fillings we want
  • humiliating our enemies
  • hair dye
  • whether other people qualify for Basic Bitch status according to the official quiz

Now, as of yesterday, we have 'uses for tinfoil' in the portfolio.

*Note: the ONLY thing that makes this Texan is that she is from El Paso, about ten minutes from the border where a ton of people get murdered. it is also the only reason Juarez Mexico survival comes up so much. soon we will go there on vacation!
