The One with the Big Mayo

Food, Marriage

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.

    That’s funny, because I routinely buy this size. Bet you can’t guess how quickly it goes? By the end of January, I’m sure. Headed home for Christmas? Lucky!

    Wow! That is a LOT of mayo! It would take Rod and me a very long time to use that up! Oh, maybe Jason can use it to polish the furniture. I’ve heard that works. Or you could give yourself a hot oil treatment with it! That’s another thing I’ve heard of! Maybe Jason can use it to wax the car! I’ve never heard of using mayo for that but just maybe…

    Men tend to be of the ‘bigger is better’ mentality. This is hilarious!

    That’s so funny! That’s also why men should never be sent on errands.
