Marriage 101, Lecture 598: Respecting Diversity

I pull six cans of pork and beans from the shopping bag.

SH: Is that what you got for taking to the festival*?

This is a grocery store in Morocco. Yes, "saucisson sec porcine" means pork sausage.

Me: Yes.

SH: But it has pork.

Me: So what?

SH: This is the Arab festival.

Me: And pork and beans was the most nutritious item I could find for the money.

SH: It's not right.

Me: It's better than tomato paste.



* Three non-perishable food items for admission.

Nope. Nothing in the festival material says, "Food except for PORK."
