Tricked by the pictures…Posted: December 19, 2008
It’s nice to realize that your words aren’t always falling on deaf ears. Take yesterday for example: for lunch I was in a rush so I served Erik one of Amy’s Pot Pies. I thought it was a chicken pot pie and he’s recently talked of craving meat so i was lovingly feeding him meat without going through the hassle of cooking it myself. last night while working on dishes (what a man!) Erik was breaking down the box for the recycling can and read off the label “Amy’s Vegetable Pot Pie”.
“No”, I said, “it was a chicken pot pie.”
This made no sense. I’d seen the pie and what looked like little bits of chicken floating around in the gravy. Even in the cover picture it looked like chicken bits! A quick read through the ingredients list brought the answer: tofu.
“Man!” I growled under my breath, “I won’t be buying this anymore.” I quickly collapsed in laughter as I hear from the kitchen the tune “Man, I feel like a woman*!” being sung. Haha! What a man indeed!
