Hmm, well-cooked and consistently spotted, but where are the meaty balls?

Spotted Dick is a steamed suet pudding containing dried fruit, usually currants. The dessert is especially popular in the United Kingdom, usually served either with custard or with butter and brown sugar. Spotted refers to the currants (which resemble spots), and Dick is a corruption of the word dough.
Eating nasi lemak with Ms Nut and J at Ms Nut’s home. On the table was also served some Malay kuih with bits of prunes in it, not unlike fruit cake.
S: What’s that? *pointing at cake* Spotted dick? *in jest*
Ms Nut & J: Gasp! *scandalised, eye-bulging stunned looks*
S: What? Haven’t you heard of a dish called spotted dick?
Ms Nut & J: *vigorously shake heads with bug eyes*
S: Well, … haven’t seen the dish before, but … know it’s an English dish, it’s like jelly or pudding or something, and maybe it’s spotted and all, that’s why it’s call spotted…
Ms Nut & J: OK!!! You can stop!
S: Hmm, if in Malay, what would it be called? … Spots is… bintik… so… bintik-bintik …
Ms Nut & J: STOP!!!
Feel quite sad that am not on the same wavelength with a teacher whom was so close to that we were more like good friends at the height of the relationship.
Now, the silent spells grow larger in conversation. The stomach-grabbing, cheeks-hurting laughter is getting less and less. Sometimes just cannot think of what to say to her.
That’s why brought J along to visit Ms Nut, even though am not so fond of her. At least she can fill in the silent gaps while hoping the current conversation would naturally steer itself into more exciting, scandalous topics.
Really miss tuition with this teacher.
Every Thursday, look forward to class.
Never missed a single class before.
Now, only go there twice a year. Three if lucky.
