Baby Fetus and other conversations

While eating dim sum:
Me: [hands to M a small circular tin filled with shrimp dumplings] Here, you’ll like this. Disregard the fact that it looks like baby fetuses.
M: [calmly picks up a shrimp dumpling and places it on her plate] …Baby fetus! [stabs with chopsticks]
After spotting my roommate Michelle basking in the sun from far away at the Huntington gardens:
My friends and I: Mo mo! (her nickname)
Michelle: [ sits up, spots the group, and slowly falls back down while making a dying face]…Aaaaaaahhhhhhrrrgh…..
On late-night eating:
Me: I try not to eat past a certain time, like 9 PM.
Michelle: Hmm maybe something healthy.
Me: If I do eat past 9, it’ll be fruits or nuts.
Michelle: [oddly-timed creepy laugh] He he he…
Me: SHELLED NUTS.
