Over pancakes I discussed the full swap with an acquaintance and his ex. The full swap is when both couples swap partners.
The acquaintance said: “A friend suggested, let’s do the full swap, but first let’s eat pancakes. Pancakes is so petty bourgeois, according to him, and the full swap is, well not so petty bourgeois. So, the pancakes would make the swap even more titillating.”
I said, “well, pancakes first and then the full swap is petty bourgeois as well, but I’ve never done the full swap. I’m waiting for the right occasion.”
After the pancakes, they were delicious, and some informal talks about a lecture for a university the woman at the table had invited me to give, I left the house.
