A verbal exchange that owes something to "Seinfeld"

Sunday evening. 
Husband downing handfuls of grapes while I watch him, magazine in my hands.
He watches back, chewing.
After a few moments...


June:  You didn't even wash off those grapes, did you?
Husband:  No. We need a little bacteria in our systems to keep us healthy.
June:  It isn't the bacteria that I was thinking of, it's the pesticides.
Husband:  (chew, chew) I don't need any pests. I want to be pest-free. 


I went back to reading.

Let's hope all those chemicals keep him mould and bug-free after all......

I laughed out loud. My husband and I have had similar exchanges about washed vs. not washed potatoes. ;-)

HeeHee...made me think of the grapes I have in the collander in the kitchen sink; washed but perhaps not 'pest-free' although I hope so!

I have taken to washing all my produce before putting it in the refrigerator...for this very reason. My hubby would never take the time to WASH anything. yuck.

he's got you, isn't that pest enough for anybody?

Had I said that to my dear old mate he'd have said: leave me alone, you're always getting at me.
He's right.

Yup, I know his kind. I'd have thrown that magazine at him.

Last weekend my husband cut up a coconut and left the chunks on the kitchen counter. Yesterday I ate a couple of them. My husband watched me and then said, "That coconut has a little bit of mold on it. Be sure to wash it first."

Now he tells me!

Perfect! That and the dog poo one makes me wonder...

You two crack me up. :D Probably because it sounds so familiar.
