Marriage 401, Lecture 628: Cutting off his nose to spite his face

SH: Do we have more ketchup?

Me: No. You threw out what we had, remember?

SH: Yes. It had high fructose corn syrup. I am morally opposed to HFCS.

Me: Yeah. You showed them. You threw away something we already owned.

SH: I'm opposed to it. It was hurting me.

Me: Right. Because we eat so much ketchup.

SH: Almost a bottle a year, probably.

Morally opposed to HFCS? Is it committing genocide or racist or republican or something?

webb said...

Well, HFCS may well be largely responsible for our obesity crisis, so it may well eventually be responsible for genocide ... of us!

I applaud his disdain for HFCS, but there are better things to get rid of ... like soft drinks!

Ketchup is highly over rated in any form. I believe it was classed as a vegetable in the Florida schools at one time so they could pretend that their lunches were swell and government approved.
But then, government approval is highly overrated as well. I'm morally opposed to it.

Becky, the way he acts, you would think.

Webb, we already don't have soda in this house. We do, however, have a gallon of Midnight Chocolate Cake frozen custard, lemon bars, Nutella cookies, pizelle, and Pringles. Yet he maintains his weight just find. There's some kind of conspiracy there.

John, I, too, am opposed to government approval.
