"Every culture around the world has their own version of a doughnut," she said. "That doesn't change the fact that they're all just fried dough covered in sugar. Having a different name for something makes it cultural, and most people like cultural."
"You don't like cultural?" I asked.
"No," she said. "I like doughnuts."
Also-
"I want to push her underwater and keep her there until the bubbles stop," she said. "But I'm not going to. That's why it's called love. Because I'm not going to."

I've been wanting to use that in writing for a while now, but I never found the excuse, so I'll just put that here.

And for your own enjoyment, here's the foreign equivalent of a doughnut in 20 other languages. I didn't just copy and paste these from some site, so my research may be a little inaccurate.

"What did she say?"
"She said that I have my 6 month teacher review tomorrow, and that if I fail, I can get a job at a donut shop...Do I like donuts?"

Fun as always. ;D Although, I really must say, I'm more interested in discussing the snippet/line
you jotted down in your artist's comments. I found it really humorous, and there just seem to be
so many POSSIBILITIES for it! I'd almost run off and "borrow" it as a prompt, if I could only get
away with it. :lmao: But seriously--Like, the immediate thing I thought of would be one female friend
talking about another, while at a pool or lake or something. The second thing I thought of, was a
frazzled mother talking about her child.

Or exchange the "her" for "him" and it could be a girlfriend talking about her boyfriend or something.
Either way, I just get this image of this horribly depressive/macabre character. (And worse yet, I want
her as a Baker. fjdsifaw.)

I knooow, I know. I critiqued the wrong thing. But it caught more of my interest. As for the piece itself--I
think it's something about the characters' interaction through dialogue that makes it feel a little passive.
Like, I'm wanting the narrator to just, be really upset about the other character not caring about
cultural nuances. (Maybe even some sort of almost horrified, "You lied in Sociology/Cultural Geography/Whatever
class!") Something a little over-the-top to add some ironic humor to the mundane/calm state of their conversation?

I think something like that might help spice it up some. :]

Sorry for the late reply. ;-; I've been sick beyond beliefe.

You know, my first instinct was that the line was a mother talking about her child but that is just way too morbidly not-MK for me to make a reality.

(I do love the idea of a deperessive/macabre Baker though. Or an Baker in need of anger management.)
