In the Bible, Satan aka the serpent, tempted Eve into sin with an apple. It’s. I’ve to know some things never change huh?!
Apples led me astray today as well. It wasn’t a very long walk admittedly. Truth be told, I have frequent flyer miles in sinning..
Moving swiftly on!
I was in Wegmans and there was a woman beside me with a very highly strung kid. Most people would call him an obnoxious little shit but I think I’ve been bad enough today without adding name calling to my list of wrong doings. She was offering an apple and he was screaming and kicking that he wanted fries and ketchup. I ignored them because I know them through work. This is also how I know this isn’t an autistic child.
It gave me an idea though! I bought a bag of apples and some caramel dip. When I came home I put some of the caramel in a dish and added a prodigious amount of red colouring. I sliced an apple and went to sit on the sofa.
‘im indoors glanced over and asked what I had so I said an apple – and proceeded to dip it liberally in the scarlet caramel.
He looked aghast at me and said ‘Is that ketchup?!’
I replied ‘it’s yummy!!’ I didn’t exactly answer his question but that’s his fault for not being wise to me by now.
He was utterly horrified! When I dipped the second bit of apple he started heaving and left the room! He was absolutely disgusted asking is this a Brit thing like vinegar on french fries?! For the record, it’s Chips when I make them and they float in malt vinegar soup!
So the moral if this story is, if you want some peace and quiet to indulge in a naughty treat, all you have to do is make it look grotesque!
