Last night, Jon was eating some Doritos on the couch. They looked great. But I wasn't very hungry.

I left the room to go do the dishes.

When I came back, I saw that he had closed the bag, but there was one Dorito laying on the coffee table. "Why didn't you eat that Dorito??" I asked.

"Because it fell onto the carpet and I was gonna throw it away" he said.

I stared at said Dorito for a solid minute. I swear, the little bastard was enticing me. I felt sorry for it. With it's bright orange nacho cheesiness... I couldn't just leave it there. That would be abandonment.

So I ever so casually picked up the Dorito and ate it. Instantly, I tasted the very distinct taste of our shag rug as I realized I ate a piece of carpet fuzz, along with my Dorito. I coughed and coughed, drank a full glass of water, and watched as Jon looked at me with "I told you so" eyes. I brushed off my pants, stood up, and promptly left the room in embarrassment.

But hey, at least I didn't waste food.

PRIORITIES people. Priorities.


  1. I love this and could see your reaction to the carpet fuzz. I'm right there with you on no wasting food...especially junk's just not right!

  2. too funny, I hate when that happens! usually when I try and eat "just one" dorito it doesn't work so maybe the fluff was a blessing in disguise! ;)

  3. Hahaha I wish I could have seen this. You're so funny :-)

  4. Yeah sis. I would have eaten it too. WE don't waste food. We just regret it when it REALLY was dirty ....
