Low Sodium Diet

Background: I entered the kitchen area, grabbed a potato chip from a partially hidden bag on the counter, and the resulting conversation took place. 

One additional note, "Sissy" is our loquacious just turned four-year-old daughter.
 __________________________________________

ME: Yuck!  These chips taste awful.  What kind are they and why did you buy the unsalted?

THE MRS.: I didn't.

ME: Are you sure? Try one of these bland chips then.

THE MRS.: (smiles) No.

ME: What? Why not?

THE MRS.: You have not seen Sissy's new trick?  She licks the salt off of the chips and then furtively slips them back into the bag.

ME: Wow, I wanted to reduce my sodium intake, but this is not what I had in mind.

Dear Slamdunk,
Ewww! Sort of like finding a torn-up mango all over the carpet.

Trust a kid, though, to let you know exactly what they do want in their food!

Ha ha ha,

Helen Ginger said...

Don't let her near your margarita.

Well, that beats taking meds to bring down your blood pressure.

Luisa Doraz said...

Too funny and cute. :) You have got to be on high alert at your kitchen. lol :)

James (SeattleDad) said...

You should just install a salt lick in your house.

I wonder if they come in different flavors?

Diane said...

Funny!!!!! There was no sogginess, huh??? :O)

malone8 said...

How can we not love 'em. She reminds me of granddaughter, Brittany. She asked for a bite of my ice cream cone and when I looked … it was gone and she was laughing.

All the best - Maxi

Oh that's a hoot! I urge you not to let the kidlet near chocolate covered almonds. ;)

mrs. fuzz said...

Ew! Haha.

I guess you can't really trust the food you eat in a house full of little ones. But then again, you don't care as much where the food has been when you have little ones. I do a lot of "oh well's" throughout the day when I put stuff in my mouth. Can't let them waste food now can I?

I love when you share these little exchanges with your family.

At least she isn't putting doggie biscuits in the cookie jar to replace the cookies she has eaten ... yet!

Anastasia said...

haha. My 4 yr old does the same thing. But she doesn;t put them back in the back. They always end up on the carpet. So I guess I got the better end of the deal.

carma said...

my parents frequently buy the unsalted kind. At least their version is a lot more sanitary ;-)

I hope you did not consume a boatload of chips before the secret was revealed...

Lydia Kang said...

AAAH! My daughter does that too! It's so evil. Cute, and gross, but kind of evil.

Umm, didn't you notice it was kinda...damp? That's a dead giveaway you've had an ABL chip (already been licked).

Diana said...

LOL! ewww and at the same time somewhat cute

=)

Theresa Milstein said...

So funny! And gross!

Momma Fargo said...

Very funny and very gross. LOL.

ocmist said...

KIDS! Don't you just LOVE em! At least this isn't as bad as the little round chocolate balls...

terri said...

LOL! What a little stinker! But I can understand how disappointed you'd be when trying to satisfy your salt craving and you find none.

kcinnova said...

LOL!

Ha! That's what we did with our McDonald's burgers when we were kids so we didn't have to share. You have a very smart kid ;-)

Stopping by from Hilary's. Congrats on the POTW!
