After eating anywhere between two and ten pounds of Buenos Aires steak plus bread, antipasto, flan, and two liters of Quilmes beer, we decided to WALK THE MEAT OFF back to the hotel. We hadn't yet realized that the meat would develop a personality of its own, complete with likes and dislikes, and that the meat did not like to be walked. Moreover, we would exhibit symptoms of those who are, if not possessed, at the very least INHABITED by something out of the ordinary.
"I'm high on meat," I said in the restaurant. "I haven't felt like this since that Seattle brunch with Jane's family made me weep."
Frank announced that his feet felt funny.
"Do you think it's the meat?" I asked.
"I have meat feet," he replied.
"Like it's sunk all the way down into your heels?"
"I think that would be meat spurs."
Outside a disco:
"Do you think the meat wants to dance?"
"The meat definitely wants to feel the rhythm."
When I tried drinking a glass of water:
"Okay, don't do that. The meat doesn't like the water."
