Marriage 101, Lecture 390: My grandparents went through the Depression

SH: What are you doing?

Me: Opening the soy sauce.

SH: Why are you using that soy sauce? [the little packets that came with the bad sushi]

Me: Because it's right here?

If there is a national soy sauce emergency, we are prepared. We are doubly prepared because we have a bottle of soy sauce in the fridge. Maybe we should keep these in the car. Just in case.

SH: But we should save it!

Me: Why?

SH: You know - in case we're out and we need soy sauce.

Me: You mean -- a soy sauce emergency? Like if we buy more sushi and they don't give us soy sauce in the takeout pack? Where they give us ginger, wasabi and napkins but they don't give us soy sauce? We need to save it for something like that?

SH: Yeah.

I have always thought a martini and sushi bar would make a fortune in Wauwatosa. Put it near Jupiter 61 and Il Mito and I would never use my kitchen again.

Thanks for the read of and comment to my blog.

TG, such an establishment would make a fortune, especially from my husband the sushi lover. Maybe it's a good thing there isn't one there or we would never get this mortgage paid off!
