Sometimes I wonder about Jason. He’s a very strange person and he never ceases to surprise me with the things he does.
For example, today, as I began making dinner, I realized that we didn’t have any mayonnaise for the sauce I was making.
Me: Jason, do you think you can go downstairs and buy some mayo? I need some for the recipe and we’re out.
Jason: Sure. I’ll be right back.
Several minutes later…
Jason: Is THIS enough mayo? *holds a bottle of mayo up to me*
Me: *stare at him, then at the mayo, then back at him*
Jason: *he smiles at me proudly* I got this big thing of mayo for only 500 yen! It’s even made for restaurant use!
Me: But that’s a lot of mayo…
Jason: And it’s only 500 yen!
Me: What are we going to do with all this mayo?
Jason: At least you won’t run out of it anytime soon!
Me: *looks at expiration date* But it’s going to expire January of 2012!
Jason: Really? Only 2 months? Then I guess we’ll just have to eat a lot of it before it expires.
Me: You mean you’ll eat a lot of it because daughter and I will be gone most of December.
Jason: Minor point.
So how big is this bottle of mayo?
A whole kilo. How in the world am I going to use it all up?
Well, at least it was cheap.
