Our House and Soursop



When my husband picked me up from work yesterday the conversation went something like this:

Him:  I bought you that thing you like.
Me:   What thing?
Him:  That thing.
Me:   What thing is that?
Him:  You know.
Me:   Er, no I don't. I like lots of things.
Him:  The thing you were telling me about the other day.
Me:    I was telling you about?
Him:  Yes I bought it in the market.
Me:   Sorry don't know what you're talking about

(By this time I was being difficult as I'd cottoned onto exactly what he was talking about but I wanted him to say it!)

Him:  The thing you read out to me with the healing properties.
Me:   Oh I know. Soursop.
Him:  That's it. I bought one for you.
Me:   Why?
Him:  Because you like it.
Me:   No I don't!
Him:  But you read it out to me.
Me:   That doesn't mean I like it!
Him:  But I thought you liked it.
Me:   Yes but that doesn't mean I wanted one.
Him:  Huh! So I just paid $25 for something you don't want?
Me:   I never said I wanted it!
Him:  I went to the market.
Me:   I didn't ask you to go to the market
Him:  Muttering under breath......Ungrateful........
Me:   Laughing.................

it's sitting in a bowl on the kitchen table!


(This stems from an article I posted earlier in the week on Face Book which outlines the health benefits of the soursop fruit.)

  3. There was a time when I would cut it, take out the seeds and put it in the fridge... later I would eat it like ice cream (with a condensed milk).... these days because of diabetes I don't eat it much, and when I do... there is no condensed milk....sigh!

    1. Sorry it's a 'no no' these days. Richard made it into ice cream. I did not eat it! And neither should he have done!

  5. That's so funny, Bee. I learned a long time ago to be very careful what I said around my man about liking something. Then I got tired of guarding my tongue so I went right ahead. Then I would say to him, "But that doesn't mean I want it". Really. True story. LOL
