A conversation with myself about ketchup

| 2 Comments

I had this conversation with myself the other day.

Me: “Mmm….I am going to have some ketchup on my burger. Let me grab some from the fridge.”

Myself: “You know, you don’t need to keep ketchup in the fridge.”

Me: “What do you mean? We’ve kept ketchup in the fridge our whole life!”

Myself: “Think about it: where do they keep ketchup at the grocery store? Not in the frozen food aisle. Why do they leave it on the tables at Red Robin if it needs to stay cold?”

Me: “You have a point, Myself. But I like it cold. It tastes fresher.”

Myself: “Fresher? Ah yes, we like to to have only the freshest ketchup — straight from the farm, as they say. Remember when Ma and Pa used to get up in the wee hours of the morn to harvest the winter ketchup?”

And then I stood in my kitchen and laughed till I could laugh no more.

We make sure to harvest our ketchup at its peak before we seal it in plastic.

  1. I feel like your self and my self would have some quality conversations about important topics, if we let them.

  2. I’m continually confounded by things like ketchup, peanut butter, pickles, and eggs, which may or may not need to go in the fridge, and sometimes they go in the fridge only after they’ve been opened, but not before. It’s really confusing. Wait, did I include eggs on that list? Hmmm, now those should DEFINITELY go in the fridge after being opened, right?

    Congrats again on the 2nd place finish in Blogger Idol, Meredith. I was pulling for you the whole way.
