Marriage 201, Lecture 39: Our hobbies - food and moral equivalency

SH: I feel fat. My pants are tight. We eat too much.

SH: For supper, I'm going to have the orange in my briefcase and then get some Ben & Jerry's ice cream when I get to Minneapolis [airport].

Me: I thought you just said you feel fat.

SH: Ben & Jerry's trumps feeling fat. There is the fact that I feel fat and the facts that I am tired and overworked and deserve ice cream. Plus it's free. Or the equivalent of being free, because I can expense it as my supper.
