let’s talk about food.

pickle

 

Time for some random thoughts.

So, maybe this is just us but there are some foods that when we have them at our house, it’s like Christmas.  And it’s not even like they’re crazy types of food.  Like pickles.  We get so excited when we have pickles at home.  You’d think that excitement would make us want to buy them all the time but we don’t because, what.. they’re a whole $4 a jar?  They always seem like such a splurge, but in reality we spend just as much on spur of the moment purchases – like tofurkey corndogs or our eighth jar of teriyaki sauce.   It’s just not fair to the pickles.

Another one is orange juice.  I ALWAYS want to buy orange juice when we’re grocery shopping but whenever I reach for it Casey is all like, B*tch are you for real? That “not from concentrate” kind is $4.29 for a half gallon!  You must be trippin – Put that down and meet me over by the beets.  (This may or may not be an exaggeration of how Casey thinks/talks but we all know he has a not-so-secret desire to be Usher, so let’s just pretend for now, ok?)  But man, I just love me some oj.

There are more.  Oh yes.  Salsa, pineapple, avocados, ALL THE CHIPS, chocolate milk…  All affordable but we rarely buy any of it.  But when we do, it’s magical.

Anyways, the point is…. that we are pretty sad.  Or maybe it’s just me.  I probably should lump Casey in with me on this nonsense.  He hasn’t done anything to deserve it – except make me listen to Usher.

I’m embarrassed by this post.  Anyone else feel this way about certain foods?  No, just me?  Cool.
