It isn't a spoonful of sugar....
It's a medium sized blob of ketchup that makes the vegetables go down.
Tonight at dinner, Jonathan was dipping his potatoes in ketchup. Everette asked me, "how unhealthy is ketchup?"
Me: Well relatively speaking, not that bad. Assuming he isn't drinking it by the cupful.
E: well, I guess is it better for him to eat asparagus dipped in ketchup or not eat asparagus?
Me: Oh definitely better with ketchup than not at all.
E: Oh well then, (dipping an asparagus bite in ketchup) Here you go Jonathan.
Like I said, it isn't sugar, it's ketchup, or maybe it's the sugar in the ketchup.
