One way you know your job is good

So, this was an approximate conversation I had while bagging up some potatoes at a local potato farm a couple weeks back--

Joe: I like the yellow-fleshed potatoes. Mmm. They're so yum.
Jenna: Yeah, me too.
Paul: Yeah, but russets are good for baked potatoes. You gotta give 'em that. They're nice and meaty.

(Quiet. Chuckles.)

Joe: Ummm... (looks at Paul suspiciously).
Paul: (Shifts eyes. Cracks a slight smile.)
Joe: Well, I don't know about meaty. I'll just have to take your word for that one, Paul.
Jenna: Ha. Paul the meatman.

Sparked by that exchange, hilarity ensued during the next two days of work. Unfortunately that was pretty much the end of the winter potato season.
