My husband loves junk food. But he hates to spend money on junk food. So he buys the cheapest candy and cookies he can find.
It’s my opinion (and therefore superior) that, if you are going to eat chocolate (or a cookie, or whatever) – if you are going to have all those empty calories, they should be the most delicious calories you can find. Nothing but Belgian truffles for me.
But my husband continues to bring home stuff he picked up at the dollar store – cookies that are made of who knows what. The ingredient list includes stuff that no one has ever heard of, and which I suspect are just made-up synonyms for plastic. And he eats it.
So the other day we stopped at the store for a couple of things, and I picked up a container of salt. It was just generic salt.
My husband asked me to put it back.
He said, “I’m uncomfortable with no-name salt. Let’s buy the name brand.”‘
So here is my question. What did he think was in the SALT?
Did he suspect that they scraped it up from the side of the road at the end of winter?
