    Not to crush your dreams, but Frank's Red Hot has plenty of high fructose corn syrup in it.

    Registrar's office gave us one hot mess of a schedule for next semester, completely omitting the two most important classes of the whole degree program.

    This will not do.

    Spouse looked at my bowl of mushrooms and asparagus topped with some hamburger, guacamole and salsa and said why do I mix my food like that and that he found it so disgusting he couldn't even look at it. WTF? After 12 years you suddenly have a problem with this? And to say that "many cultures would find this to be a gross breach of etiquette"? I call bullshit.
    I'm done cooking for you; from now on it's every man for himself.

    Well, I hope he has fun with his "sandwiches," and frozen pizza, which, you should remind him, both mix food groups in a "breach of etiquette." LOL!!!

    She mixed the ingredients together. Like a hash.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    remember this, when he puts on puppydog eyes and asks you to make something because he's hungry
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    You would think what with his law degree and all he would see the fallacy in his so-called logic.
    But no.
    My brother used to have a thing with the food on his plate touching and the parents would tell him "it all gets mixed up in your stomach anyway".

    The sad part is that I have been buying all the groceries and doing all the cooking for the last few months.
    I may just be magically Ifing every day at dinnertime.
    Why? Because I can.

    I admit it. I'm a food separatist too.

    But if someone else is doing the cooking, I'm an "everything looks great, thank you SO much" instead.
