Yet(!) another story from the life of Mr. Ken.

Mr. Ken just got back from his daily walk. He yells up the stairs. On an aside here, what is it about spouses that feel compelled to carry on a long conversation when you are not in the same room with them, yet when you are in the same room, it’s silence.

Mr. Ken: “Did you see what I bought for lunch? You’ll be happy because it is from Trader Joe’s.”

Me: “Okay, what is it?”

Mr. Ken: “Hot dogs!”

Me: “Hot dogs, you say? You know if you ever saw how they made hot dogs, you would instantly become a vegan.”

Mr. Ken: “These aren’t just any hot dogs. They are chicken hot dogs, so they must be healthy. They are also nitrate free. Did I tell you that I bought them at Trader Joe’s?”

Me: “Do I need to come downstairs and read the ingredients for you?”

Mr. Ken, mumbling: “Me and my big mouth. I should have kept quiet about the hot dogs.”

Do you have any food that you think is healthy for whatever reason, but it really isn’t?
