Cassandra said her drink was perfect. In fact, the foam made from the beta-lactoglobulin lasted longer than shaken egg white. I also pointed out to Cassandra that our bourbon has fewer carbon emissions. She didn’t find that interesting.
I needed her to like her drink so she could have another. Cassandra, a former vegetarian, wasn’t looking forward to our evening. “Wrong meat has a lot of crap. I don’t like highly processed foods, ”she said. “I know a lot of unhealthy vegetarians.”
To change her mood, I gave her a few pieces of diamond jewelry from the lab. Diamond mining is a brutal industry for all I’ve ever learned from a Leonardo DiCaprio movie. Mr DiCaprio is indeed an investor in Diamond Foundry, a Silicon Valley company that slowly grows diamonds in a reactor that heats the plasma to 10,000 degrees, the warmth of the outer layers of the sun.
Its diamonds sell for a little less than mined. This meant I had to gently tell Cassandra that the $ 6,400 tennis bracelet, $ 3,300 worth of earrings, $ 5,400 ring, and $ 4,500 necklace looked great to her, but the closest ones Day how celebrities had to be returned on the red carpet. Her mood wasn’t fixed.
However, she said – completely unsolicited – that my skin was glowing. I had no idea if it was due to the cobwebs, human collagen, two cocktails, or my concern about the return of the diamonds.
My son Laszlo was harder to argue with. “I wanted to heat up some chicken nuggets,” he said. But when he saw the food and thought about the hassle of microwave nuggets, he decided to give it a try. “It doesn’t look gross.”
