This year I have a lot to be thankful for. I have an amazing wife, a wonderful family, and the best friends a guy could ask for. This year we attended Friendsgiving and it was amazing! Every comfort food imaginable was available in spades. I wanted to share a conversation I had at Friendsgiving. It is an extremely common line of questioning I receive.
Tim: Is the frosting on the red velvet cupcakes regular frosting or cream cheese?
Host: It’s cream cheese
Tim: Oh okay, thanks.
Guest: Do you not like cream cheese?
Guest: It tastes just like regular frosting.
Tim: Thanks, but I cannot eat it.
Guest: Are you lactose intolerant?
Guest: Are you just super health conscious?
Tim: Ha! no.
Guest: Can you not eat dairy for some intrinsic purpose like religion or something?
Guest: I’m confused.
Tim: I just don’t like it.
Guest: Have you ever tried it?
Guest: How do you know you don’t like it?
Tim: The same way I know I don’t like monkey brains or Twilight. I just know.
Guest: That’s pretty weird.
Tim: You asked.
Guest: Is that your only hangup?
Tim: Ha, no.
Guest: So I take it you won’t try this cream cheese cranberry dip, right?
Tim: I have a whole other issue with cranberries, but no I would not eat it.
Guest: What’s wrong with cranberries?!?
‘Tim: I’m pretty sure they were planted by Satan.
Guest: I’m going to go over here now. (Guest walks away)
Tim: You asked.
Overall, Friendsgiving was amazing. Lots of food, drink and football. No better way to spend a Sunday. Oh, and now I have documented proof about evil cranberries thanks to my scientists.
