I love beer...

but I notice that alongside it in his refrigerator, TSO has a 16 ounce tub of Breakstone sour cream, and on top of that an equal size tub of Smart Balance. Life's like that, isn't it? Always pulling us in two directions at once. I've had a feeling for some time that his Christianity was the Pauline kind - the spirit willing, the flesh weak - and now I have evidence. And don't try to tell me it's cottage cheese just because the label's turned away.

Ha ha, o observant one... I actually wouldn't know if it's sour cream or cottage cheese because I hate both.

Regarding Smart Balance, I'm satisfied with any butter-like substance, not having the palate with respect to butter that I've developed, via pain(less)-staking research, with beer.

Your research went in the right direction.

TS said...

I checked the 'fridge and it's Breakstone lowfat cottage cheese.

William Luse said...

Sure it is.

TS said...

Yeah, I'm with you - never trust a Breakstone label.

William Luse said...

Tell you what. If your wife says that's what it is, then I'll believe you.

TS said...

You really don't believe me? For shame, Bill, for shame! She's hobnobbing in Europe right now and so is unavailable for vouching porpoises.

What's wrong with sour cream? How do you eat a burrito or quesadilla without it?

William Luse said...

Or a baked potato. Or make chip dip to go with the beer. Nothing's wrong with sour cream, Jeannetta.

All right, TS, I believe you. But next time you come to visit, we're having steak and baked potatoes with sour cream washed down with Guiness. And I'll bet you eat it.

TS said...

You're making me hungry.

TS said...

JMT, not that anyone should care, but come to think of it I don't hate sour cream. I'm more take it or leave it, though I do have it occasionally on baked potatoes.

LOL


Hey you two need to go over and welcome the newcomer who shares your passion for theology and beer.

Be gentle with him, he's a newbie!

I seldom mix the two, Elena, except in my favorite scriptural passage, which runs sort of as follows: And on that day, when he should have been at work in the fields or maybe tending his flock, man created beer, and liking the color, saw that it was good, and gave some to his dog, and seeing that no harm came to the dog, gave some to himself, and felt that it was good, and after giving himself some more felt really, really good. And the Lord God spoke to the man in the midst of a barley patch, and asked him, "What hast thou wrought?" And the man said unto God, "God, I know that thou art a jealous God, who thinkest thou hast created all sufficient for man's happiness, but you've got to try this stuff."

Anyway, it goes on a while but the upshot is that the Lord, in spite of Himself, had to agree.
