Last week a bunch of the women were cooking a big meal for our first Ladies Night. It happened to also be a day when various people were coming and going from Dave and Erin’s house. So while we were cooking our dear friend Issa (from Israel) poked his head in as he was leaving. For some reason he said, “You know, in American movies I always see people eating spoonfuls of peanut butter. And I don’t get it.” To which Erin replied, “Well, have you ever had peanut butter?” And he said, “No.” All of the Americans knowingly looked at one another and decided that this situation needed to be remedied. So Erin got out her treasured supply of peanut butter, lovingly sent from family and friends at home, and she handed him a spoon.
Deep contemplation of this yummy new substance on the palette
And then he understood. No words were needed, because no words can capture the greatness of The Peanut Butter. His smile said it all. Next week we'll have to introduce him to the wonders of PB&J... it will blow his mind.
