My hubby left for work this morning. There was a little tension in the air.
It started last night and continued thru the night. Let me put it this way, we didn’t exactly spoon all night.
Uh uh. Nope.
He shocked us by opening a can of Coke and dumping an entire package of peanuts into the can.
This was done in a nonchalant manner. My kids and I froze and stared at him. He glanced up.
“What?” he said as if he hadn’t just dome something totally weird.
“That is disgusting! Why did you do that?” my daughter demanded.
“Yeah, Dad. That is gross,” my son piped in. The baby grunted and pointed. She was in dismay too.
And this is when the tension began: ”Oh, that? You guys haven’t heard of peanuts and coke?
It’s a Southern tradition,” he explained as if he were Paula Dean.
Who is this man? What did he do with my hubby?
“I am Southern. I love traditions. I have been married to you for almost 14 years and THIS, is a first. Peanuts and coke, together?” I said.
Well. What do you think? Please help me out. For the love of all things Southern and good, can this faux hubby be correct?
There is tension, people. I need your help.
