Ian and I have gotten into the habit of eating a bowl of chips while watching TV before bed. We both know this is not good for us, but I’m old. I like traditions.
Last night, I was wrapped in a blanket with Chico on my lap, thinking about those jalapeno chips I bought earlier in the day. I asked Ian to get a bowl of chips for the last half of the show we were watching.
He said no.
I insisted, as his mother, that he go get some.
He said, “No, Mom. I don’t want them and neither do you.”
So, no bowl of chips last night. I may or may not be too old to remember the last time that happened.
