The parable of the peanuts and the cashews

I remembered my imaginary post from yesterday (although in my imagination it was a lot longer).  It’s a true story my family’s heard me tell lots of times.

The setting was our one-bedroom basement apartment in Amman, Jordan, when Dean and I were newlyweds.  We had a bag of mixed peanuts and cashews.  Dean was at work and I was eating them while I read a book.  I don’t like peanuts very much, so I ate all the peanuts first, leaving only pure, undiluted cashews.  Then I  went to work and came home to find that Dean had eaten all the cashews.  I said, “There’s no delayed gratification in marriage!”  Dean answered, “But there’s lots of gratification.”

    Hahaha. My husband does not eat tree nuts, but he eats legumes, so peanuts and cashews are fair game to him. Sadly, this made him buy a bunch of peanut chocolate bars the other day, but no almond ones, which I would have infinitely preferred.
